These zippy “fingers” will appeal to anyone who loves blue cheese. This is another recipe that can be made ahead, frozen, and reheated without compromising taste. From my book Upper Crusts: Fabulous Ways To Use Bread.

Cheese Fingers


  • loaf of white bread with crusts removed
  • about 1 lb cheddar cheese in thin slices
  • 1/2 lb processed blue cheese (suitable for spreading)
  • 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups mayonnaise


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place one slice of cheddar cheese on each slice of bread.
  3. Top with another slice of bread, then spread it with blue cheese.
  4. Place another slice of bread on top of the blue cheese, making 3 slices of bread and two cheese fillings.
  5. Spread all sides of the bread with mayonnaise, and dip all sides in the Parmesan cheese.
  6. Cut sandwiches into “fingers” (cutting bread into 4 equal strips) or squares or triangles and secure with toothpicks.
  7. Place bread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or on a non-stick baking pan.
  8. Bake until golden brown. Cheese should be melted but not burned.

Each “sandwich” makes four fingers.
