  • Try this instead of blue cheese

    I'm a sandwich nut. Used to work in a deli as a teen so I know my hand held foods.

    Your recipe is awesome. The only three thing I would change (or add) is the blue cheese because of the crumbly and very strong flavor which turns off people (especially kids), veggie, and the bread.

    Try this instead for cheese! A year old aged gruyere. It's very cheesy but unlike blue cheese it's taste is not pungent plus it's got that pull when you bite into it like mozzarella. As for the bread sourdough has a unique bite and crispness when buttered and toasted that makes the sandwich. To balance off just a thin slice of tomato.

    Look this is just me. Try your variations with veggies, cheese, bread, and even sauce! I like horseradish because it goes great with bacon.

    To each his own
