Add blue cheese for a tangy twist to the BLT.

We’ve had chicken salad BLTs and turkey BLTs, but were only recently inspired by Castello USA to make this blue cheese BLT.
It’s a lovely a new take on a BLT:
Blue Castello (or other rich, creamy blue cheese)
Sliced heirloom tomatoes
On a toasted baguette
You can make it vegetarian by substituting Baconnaise [a NIBBLE favorite] or Nasoya’s Nayonaise and optional vegan bacon, such as Smart Bacon from Lightlife.
Enjoy it open face or not, with a cold beer.
It may be the perfect sandwich to enjoy over July 4th holiday: It’s red (tomato), white (bread and blue cheese) and blue (blue cheese again).
You can apply the same principle to the red, white and blue burger in the photo below, adding a slice of red onion.
Other “patriotic” ways to serve blue cheese and tomatoes (you can subtsitute peppadews or red bell pepper):
Bagel with blue cheese/cream cheese spread (mix half and half), tomato and red onion
Blue cheese nachos (with red salsa)
Breakfast omelet or scrambled eggs (use halved cherry or grape/pear tomatoes—and add red onion)
Blue cheese-stuffed peppadews
Fruit and cheese plate, with red apples and grapes
Green salad with red onion, tomato and blue cheese garnish
Grilled cheese and red apple panini
Plain Greek yogurt with red onion, tomato and blue cheese toppings
Stuffed radicchio or red endive leaves (mash blue cheese with a bit of mayo or yogurt)
