Grilled Blue Cheese Sandwich

Here's another easy sandwich; this time for the blue cheese lover.  (It's difficult for me to photograph sandwiches, by the way).  This was my lunch yesterday.  Whenever I buy a package of blue cheese, I have to find ways to incorporate it into foods that only I will be eating (or only one section of a pizza, etc), because I live in a household full of blue-cheese-haters.  I know!  I don't know what's wrong with them, either.  I made this yesterday to use up some of the blue cheese in my fridge, before it goes bad.  (My husband asked "How can you tell if blue cheese has gone bad, anyway?")

I make my "grilled" cheese sandwiches in the oven... this way, you can make many at once, and you don't have to babysit the stove.

Grilled Blue Cheese Sandwich

2 sliced sourdough bread
2 teaspoons butter
1 thin slice sharp cheddar cheese
1-2 thin slices blue cheese

Preheat oven to 400.  Butter one side of one piece of bread; lay it butter-side down on a cookie sheet.  Lay the cheese on the bread, and top with another slice of buttered bread; buttered side facing up this time.  Bake in the oven, about 4-5 minutes each side, until cheese is melted and bread it golden brown.  Makes one sandwich.

Next time I make a grilled cheese sammy, I'm slapping on some gorgonzola!
