    twissis's Note:

    There are times in our daily lives when we just have a case of the blues & nothing is as therapeuitc for it as a grilled cheese sandwich - the ultimate comfort food! This unique grilled cheese sandwich uses blue to cure the blues & puts a bit of an Italian twist on an otherwise British effort .. hence the Godfather title. I can't recall now where the idea originated, but I've been playing w/it for quite a while & have modified it from the original to suit our preferences. I suggest you try it - it may work well as a blues preventative for you too!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4


    Grilled ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
    • 2 ounces blue cheese (crumbled)
    • 3 ounces bacon (cooked crisp & crumbled)
    • 3 ounces fresh tomatoes (diced, use only tomato meat or pulp)
    • 4 tablespoons Italian salad dressing
    • 8 slices bread


    1. 1
      Combine the cream cheese w/the blue cheese & mix well to a smooth consistency.
    2. 2
      Add crisped bacon pieces & diced tomato to the cheese mixture & mix just well enough to achieve a good distribution.
    3. 3
      Put 8 slices sandwich bread on your cutting board or counter. Using a pastry brush, brush approx 1/2 tbsp of the Italian salad dressing on ea slice of bread.
    4. 4
      Turn over 4 slices of the bread & spread 3 oz of the cheese mixture on those 4 slices (You should have 12 oz of cheese mixture for this).
    5. 5
      Top ea of those slices w/the other 4 slices so all the exposed bread surfaces are the ones spread w/the Italian salad dressing.
    6. 6
      Grill your sandwiches & enjoy!

      Wow - this was outstanding (and I don't even like any type of blue cheese!). I made this exactly as posted, using gorgonzola and rye bread. Absolutely delightful. I would only caution that you let the sandwich rest for a minute or so before slicing, so the filling doesn't run out when you do so. Thanks for sharing this treat!

      Very good... I left out the tomato for myself, but everyone else had them. The cream cheese/bleu cheese mixture was awesome, and with the bacon on top, it hit the spot.

      I don't think I would've thought to put these ingredients together in a grilled cheese sandwich, but I'm really glad that someone else did, lol! I never would've thought to use Italian dressing as the "butter" on the outside of the sandwich, either -- learn something new every day! I used smoked blue cheese and light cream cheese in this (leftover stuff I needed to use up). I chopped my tomato and just sprinkled it on top of the cheese right before cooking. I was wrapping it to grill at work for dinner, and was afraid that the tomatoes would make the bread mushy if I mixed them into the cheese ahead of time. Thanks for posting, twissis -- this definitely cheered me up! Made for Culinary Quest I Family Picks
