jalapeno popper grilled cheese

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese is a delectable combination of baked cream cheese filled jalapenos, gooey cheddar, Monterey Jack cheese, and crispy bacon. It is sandwiched between two slices of thick hearty white bread and grilled to perfection. Do you like grilled cheese? I absolutely love them. Grilled cheese is the ultimate comfort food. In fact it is a tough contender even against mac n cheese. Although you do have to like a little heat to partake in this beauty. If picked properly jalapenos can be very flavorful with relatively mild heat. Please be sure to read my section on choosing the right jalapenos.

HOW DO YOU MAKE JALAPENO GRILLED CHEESE?
First using plastic food handling gloves (or even plastic sandwich bags) cut the jalapenos in half and remove the seeds and membranes. Stuff each half with a little mound of cream cheese. Now place them on a cookie sheet and bake until the peppers are semi soft, the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.

Place one slice each of cheddar cheese on two bread slices. Place one slice each of Monterey Jack on two bread slices Each sandwich will have both kinds of cheese. Slice the cooked stuffed jalapenos into bite size pieces. Divide the jalapeno slices between the two slices of bread with cheddar. Add the four slices of bacon to the slices of bread with Monetery Jack. If desired add chopped cilantro to one side. Combine the slices of bread to form 2 sandwiches.

Top each sandwich with several pats of butter. Place in skillet over medium low heat butter side down. Top with more pats of butter. Now grill each side until lightly browned. Cheese should be melted and gooey.
