Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese with Bacon



  • 2 jalapenos sliced lengthwise seeds and membranes removed
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 slices bacon crispy cooked
  • 4 slices of your favorite cheese (I used raclette and smoked cheddar)
  • 4 slices sourdough bread (or whatever good bread you have on hand)
  • Pats of butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Fill each jalapeno half with approximately 1 ounce of cream cheese. Bake stuffed jalapenos on cookie sheet for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven.
  3. Place 1 slice of cheese on each bread slice. Each sandwich will have both kinds of cheese. Slice stuffed jalapenos into bite size pieces. Add jalapeno slices to one side of the bread and 2 slices of bacon to the other side. Combine slices of bread to form 2 sandwiches.
  4. Grill each sandwich until lightly browned. Turn and cook until light browned on other side, Cheese should be melted and gooey.
  5. Optional: Add a little juice from a jar of jalapenos if you have any. I mixed it with the cream cheese for an extra kick.
