- Ready In:
4 Grilled Sandwiches
- Combine the cream cheese w/the blue cheese & mix well to a smooth consistency.
- Add crisped bacon pieces & diced tomato to the cheese mixture & mix just well enough to achieve a good distribution.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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!
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

I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
