TGIF!! It’s been a crazy week – I actually can’t believe it’s already Friday! Hope everyone has fun weekend plans. I’m looking forward to the temps getting back down to what’s average for the season – the past few days have been like summer!
I was looking at the jalapenos in my fridge the other day and remembered this sandwich that I made months ago. Now I’m thinking I may have to make it again…very soon…it’s just too good.
If you love spice and love cheese, this is definitely for you. I’m a big fan of both and this really hits the spot. Pair it with soup and you’ve got yourself a great meal that’s quick and easy. You can use any bread you like – I used low carb bread and it was perfect 🙂
Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich
adapted from Closet Cooking
2 jalapenos, cut in half, seeded, then sliced thinly lengthwise
2 slices bread of your choice
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temp
1/2 cup shredded cheese, or 2-3 slices cheese of your choice (I used colby and jack)
Spread cream cheese on one slice of bread. Add jalapeno pieces, then cheese. Top with other slice of bread.
Melt butter in a skillet and place sandwich in it. Let cook a few minutes, until cheese has melted a good amount, and carefully flip over. Cook a few more minutes then remove from skillet. Serve immediately.
