Grilled Blue Cheese and Bacon Sandwiches
1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) Wisconsin Blue cheese, crumbled
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
8 (1/2 inch thick) slices hearty onion artisan bread
2 tablespoons butter, softened
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp
In a small bowl, combine Blue cheese, cream cheese, scallions and pepper; mix well. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Spread the Blue Cheese mixture on the non-buttered side of 4 slices of bread. Cut bacon slices in half; place 2 halves on top of each Blue-Cheese-topped slice. Cover with remaining 4 slices of bread, buttered side out.
Place sandwiches on an electric griddle heated to 275ºF, 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.
