"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." — HARLEAGHSGIRL

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.
Okay so I didn't exactly do this recipe as written. I basicacly used the idea of it. I used small sour dough sliced cocktail bread, broiled each slice then flipped it over spread poppy seed dressing on one side. I then added the pear and bacon. I used feta cheese and mozzarella cheese instead of the blue cheese. I then broiled them for just a minute or two. Then and drizzled more poppy seed dressing on top. I made this for a party and could not keep enough of them going. Every one loved them. It took a while for people to figure out the flavors. The pears are very subtle. The poppy seed dressing added a sweet topping. It was labor intense though. But sooo worth it.
