Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

July 18, 2012 § 12 Comments

Yesterday something weird happened.  Something very rare that has only happened two or three times in my entire foodie history.  I was sitting at the table browsing my now 10 page long “To Make List” and my eyes passed right over all of the sweet stuff!  That never happens but, on this particular occasion, I’m glad it did.  After passing through all the cheesecakes, donuts, and crumbles, my eyes focused on just one thing – Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese. :-D

I haven’t had a real jalapeno popper in years, so I had to go off of memory when figuring out which ingredients to shove in between two slices of buttered bread.  Cheddar and monterey jack cheeses, a jalapeno, some cream cheese, and bacon.  Yeah, that sounded about right.  ;-)

The entire grilled cheese can be whipped up in under 10 minutes which, if you ask me, is dangerous since it’s so good.  But then again, it has bacon and three kinds of cheese so you’re gonna want it everyday anyways.

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

The melty grilled cheese you know and love brought to the next level with cream cheese, bacon and jalapeno peppers!” 


  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 2 slices bread (I used rye.)
  • cheddar cheese
  • monterey jack cheese
  • 2 strips bacon, cut in half and cooked until crisp
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced (make sure all seeds and gills are removed)
  • butter (for grilling)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Spread cream cheese on one side of each slice of bread.  Top one slice with cheeses, bacon, and jalapeno.
  2. Heat a medium nonstick pan to medium heat.
  3. Put the sandwich together (make sure the cream cheese side of the bread is down), spread the top with butter, flip sandwich over so the buttered side is on the pan.  Cook for about 3-4 minutes, butter the other side of the sandwich, flip and cook for 3-4 more minutes or until browned, slice in half and enjoy!

Yield:  1 sandwich
