Bacon Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

We grow jalapenos every year in our garden, and I am always trying to come up with new things to do with them.  Recently, I was watching The Great Food Truck Race, and there was a food truck that did vamped up grilled cheese sandwiches (Roxy’s Grilled Cheese) & it just hit me – bam – right there!

Jalapeno Poppers & Bacon inside of a grilled cheese!!

Oh.  my.  gosh.  They turned out ubelievable – an explosion of flavor on the taste buds for sure.  This will be one I will be making agian, and again, and again, and again.

Set your oven to broil.  Place the jalapenos on a baking sheet & broil for about 3 minutes on each side, until the skins are charred.  immediately place the jalapenos into a Ziploc bag, or well sealed container, for about 15 minutes. Remove & peel off the skins & remove the seeds.

 

Combine the cream cheese & shredded mexican cheese.  Spread it evenly between the 4 slices of bread.  Top with the cooked bacon.  Divide the jalapenos between all 4 slices of bread.  Top with the remaining slices of bread.

Melt some butter in a skillet & fry each sandwich on both sides until nicely browned.
Cut in half, and eat it all up!
YUMMMM!
