I made slight changes to the recipe and loved it. I ommitted the roasted red peppers and replced them with a couple of leaves of basil per sandwich. I also took a tablespoon or two of the required mayonaise and mixed it with the blue cheese. That way the blue cheese was easy to spread and didn't fall out of the sandwich.
Chicken, Bacon, and Blue-Cheese Sandwiches
A truly satisfying flavor trio. Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes. Notes: In summer, this sandwich is great with thick slices of fresh tomato instead of the roasted red peppers.
