"The original idea for this came from a friend. I varied the type of cheese and bread, and added a finishing step to create these tasty little sandwiches. I used low-sodium bacon, however, I think any bacon would work well. Served with a side salad of mixed greens and fresh berries, this makes a great brunch or light supper sandwich."

Bosc pear, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups
rosemary focaccia bread, or other square rolls, split
blue cheese, crumbled
They made a similar sandwich like this one at the deli where I used to work. However, it was made with the addition of homemade blue cheese mayo and smoked turkey. It was one of our most popular specials and so delicious!
The flavor was good but I found the texture to be very dry. Maybe it would be better with some sort of spread.
I LOVE blue cheese. Great idea. Thank you
This is decent in taste, but nothing special like I was expecting. If you hate blue cheese, this won't have enough "yum" to overcome that. It's almost bland, to be honest. Would be better with a spread or sauce or something to tie the flavors together. I'm a major fan of all these flavors, but having them together didn't make magic like I'd hoped.
These sandwiches are pretty tasty, but I replaced the pear with Fuji apple slices and melted the blue cheese to give it some crisp as well as something to take away the dryness.
Loved this!!!!!!!!!! I also made a batch with Cambert and it was milder but awsome. I think any cheese you like would be great.
Recipe Group Selection: 29, September 2012 ~ This was an interesting little sandwich. We liked the ingredients, just not crazy about them served together. I made mine with the called for blue cheese and made my husband's with feta cheese. We felt there needed to be something spread on the bread before adding the toppings, maybe a THIN layer of mayonnaise or possibly broiling the bread with olive oil before adding everything else. We ate them and took some to the neighbors to try. I'm glad we tried this as we do enjoy new recipe.
Recipe Group selection of 9/29/12. I didn't follow the recipe exactly because I didn't have apple juice, so I improvised and I think it worked quite well. I cooked my bacon and sliced my pear as it cooked. I removed the bacon and sauteed the pear slices in the drippings. I assembled my sandwiches on homemade French Bread, but it seemed as if it might need more moisture, so I spread each toasted slice with about a tsp of bleu cheese dressing, then added the pear slices then the bacon and finally the crumbled bleu cheese. The only complaint brought to my attention was I should have made twice as much. Thanks, Harleaghsgirl, this is a keeped!
