    My Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich is loaded up with plenty of melty cheese and spicy jalapeño peppers. Once you try this kicked up version of a grilled cheese, you’ll never go back to the original.


    • 6 thin slices French bread
    • 3 Tablespoons butter
    • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
    • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
    • 1/4-1/2 cup jarred jalapeño slices, diced
    • 1 teaspoon juice of jarred jalapeños


    1. Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat.
    2. Spread one side of each slice of bread with butter.
    3. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, jalapeños, and juice. Stir well to combine.
    4. Spoon the cheese mixture onto the bread with the butter side facing out. Sandwich together to make 3 sandwiches.

    This sandwich is piled high with ham, turkey, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and sprouts. Of course, it wouldn’t be a grilled cheese if it wasn’t oozing with melted Munster cheese!
