Recipe Swap: Bacon Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese


If you are joining the other million or so people who have plans on Tuesday to lose weight for real this year, you might want to make this sandwich first. And then maybe eat it every day leading up to Tuesday so by the time that awful tradition of making resolutions rolls around, you've had your fair share of bacon, cheese and gooey awesome-ness. Just an idea.

I'm beginning to sound like a broken record when I tell you that when I receive Jaida's blog for the blogger's choice recipe swap, I'm always excited. But really, how could I not be? She has awesome recipes.

Although, there was a first for me. I spent absolutely no time at all trying to decide on a recipe. I saw this one and immediately told Tom it's what we'd be having for dinner the next night. I couldn't help but make the little change of adding bacon though.

    • 4 slices bread, of your choice
    • 4 slices bacon, cooked 
    • 2 tbsp. cream cheese, softened
    • 2+ tbsp. jarred jalapeno slices
    • 4 slices melty cheese (I used a mild cheddar)
    • cooking spray
1. Preheat a grill or a skillet over medium heat.
2. Spread the cream cheese over the slices of bread. Top with the melty cheese, then the bacon and desired amount of jalapenos. Place one slice of the bread on the other, creating a sandwich.
3. Spray the top of the bread with the cooking spray. Flip and place sprayed side down onto the grill or pan. Spray the top-up piece of bread and grill/cook until golden brown and the cheese has melted.

I don't really have words to describe this. Bacon + cheese + jalapenos = melty awesome gooeyness. Is that good enough? Just make this okay?

Thanks Jaida for such a delicious recipe! And thanks to our lovely blog hostess Sarah of Taste of Home Cooking for hosting yet another swap! :-)
