    I personally would give this a 3 star, but my husband says 5 star, so I averaged it out. I felt there wasn't quite enough blue cheese flavor. I also thought the mayo to be a bit overpowering and it made the grilled cheese feel heavy and greasy, and not in a good way. I think if I backed off on the mayo a bit it could have tasted a lot better. My husband thought it was perfect, didn't want to change anything.

    Fantastic grilled cheese sandwich! Only thing we left out were the mushrooms. Creamy and full of flavor, what a great deviation from the traditional grilled cheese.
