Bacon and blue cheese are like Fred and Ginger or salt and pepper or Diet Coke and M&Ms. Wait, you don't do that? Oh that's right, that last one is my dirty little secret. Well, it's certainly no secret that bacon and blue cheese are a match made in heaven and this sandwich....it just might be the yummiest sandwich this side of heaven.
BLT Sandwich with a Blue Cheese Spread ~ adapted from The Food Network Magazine
Blue Cheese Spread
1/4 cup mayonaisse
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup + blue cheese crumbles
2 Tbsp hot sauce (like Frank's)
1 small clove garlic, minced
Freshly ground black pepper (I used lots!)
Mix ingredients together until well mixed. Add additional blue cheese crumbles or hot sauce if desired.
Bread (I totally cheated and used store bought bread--Dave's Killer Bread--have you tried this? It's so killer, but (unfortunately!) SO pricey)
Bacon strips, cooked until crispy, but not burnt
Tomatoes, sliced (garden fresh put this over the top!)
Toast bread slices and let cool just a bit. Slather blue cheese spread on a toasted bread slice and layer bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Top with remaining bread slice. Slice in half and serve.
