Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

  • Author: Jen


The Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese sandwich takes ordinary grilled cheese to another level!


  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked crispy
  • 4 slices of Italian or french bread
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar
  • 4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 slice monterey jack
  • 2 jalapeños (Feel free to adjust to your taste.)
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Cut Jalapeños in half lengthwise and bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 425 (Irecommend using gloves when working with Jalapeños)
  2. While jalapeños are roasting, cook your bacon and set aside
  3. Remove the seeds from the jalepenos and then dice them and add to a small mixing bowl
  4. In the same bowl, add in cream cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper
  5. Mix until combined (For easier spreading, ensure that the cream cheese is at room temperature!)
  6. Spread the jalapeño filling on 1 slice of bread and top with sharp cheddar cheese
  7. On the other slice of bread, add a slice of Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese
  8. Add your bacon and stack sandwich slices together
  9. Generously butter the outside of the sandwich on both sides


If cheese is not completely melted, just pop in the oven at 400 degrees until cheese is melted
