How to Make AM I BLEU GRILLED CHEESE ON RYE(SALLYE))
- Cook bacon to crispy stage, remove from heat and drain on paper towel.
Preheat griddle (or heavy skillet) to medium heat. You could also use a sandwich press if you have it. I use my griddle because I can cook all four at once on it.
Crumble bacon into bite size pieces.
In small mixing bowl, whisk cream cheese, bleu cheese, bacon pieces, parsley (optional) and 2 tablespoons of Italian dressing together.
NOTE: Shake Italian dressing well to blend before pouring into measuring cup.
- On clean surface (I use parchment paper or my cutting board), lay out 4 slices of rye bread.
Divide cheese mixture into 4 equal amounts and spread on the 4 slices of bread
Cover with the remaining 4 slices
Brush liberally with Italian dressing and carefully place sandwich with coated side down on griddle.
Brush side facing up with remaining Italian dressing.
NOTE: Do not turn heat too high or bread will char before cheese melts.
Toast approximately 3 minutes until down side is golden brown. Carefully turn over with spatula, and toast the remaining side until golden brown and cheese mixture is melted.
- Serve with your favorite condiments.
