Blue Cheese and Portabella Sandwich

I was looking forward to this meal all day. There aren't many flavors that go better than blue cheese and mushrooms. Even steak or meat lovers will enjoy this meal. Make sure to get a good quality blue cheese, it will be well worth the money. When you use a flavorful and strong cheese you don't end up needing a large quantity to get the flavor you need. 

I had extra artichoke foccacia from dinner over the weekend that needed to be used up. It ended up being perfect for this meal, but you could use good sliced bakery bread and the results would be just as good. Serve with a salad and dinner is served.
