Grilled Blue Cheese & Bacon Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced  
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper, coarsely ground
  • 8 slices (1/2” thick) hearty onion artisan bread
  • 2 tsp. butter, softened
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked until crisp

Instructions:

In a small bowl, combine blue cheese, cream cheese, scallions and pepper; mix well. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Spread the cheese mixture on the non-buttered side of 4 slices of bread. Cut bacon slices in half; place 2 halves on top of each cheese-topped slice. Cover with remaining 4 slices of bread, buttered side out.

Place sandwiches on an electric griddle heated to 275° F, or in a preheated skillet over medium heat. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until bread is golden brown, and cheese is melted.
