This one was the perfect amount of cheese, but it's not the typical cheddar.  It also has gruyere and blue...aaaaand bacon.  Mmmmm, bacon.  I paired it with this salad, also with bacon, and it was amazing too!

My girlfriend that came over is pregnant and has been craving bacon sooooo, I ran with it.  Hey...if I have to suffer through a lot of cheese and bacon to make a friend happy, then I'll do it!  Ha!!

Alatiel - it only calls for 2 ounces of blue so it's not really over powering. You could use gorgonzola instead which is a much milder blue cheese? I'm not a big blu fan either and I didn't feel like all I was tasting was the blue cheese...

I wonder if you could sub feta for the bleu cheese for a little different flavor, since it still has that kinda pungent quality?
