Wasn't what I was hoping for and very rich. Good blue cheese taste though and I will certainly grill other sandwiches using salad dressing on the bread, what a good idea for extra taste. I have lots of the filing left over and may freeze it and spread on French bread, then bake like garlic bread. That might be a nice appetizer.

Wow!! Fantastic! Marvelous! Delicious! Incredible! Can you tell I really enjoyed this sandwich?? LOL! I wondered what I'd think of the addition of the Italian Dressing but I used my favorite (Homemade Italian Salad Dressing) and it was an excellent compliment. I did misread the directions and put all the dressing in the filling so mine was probably a little messier than it needed to be but it sure tasted good! Brushing the bread with more dressing for grilling was a great addition too. I can't wait to pamper myself again with another one of these! Thanks for sharing!
