Another day, another grilled cheese sandwich. Last weekend I made the Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese by Simply Scratch featured on BuzzFeed’s list, 31 Grilled Cheeses That Are Better Than a Boyfriend.
I love this grilled cheese! The bread is smothered with a cream cheese-green onion mixture. I could eat this cheese blend by itself. It is creamy and fresh and should be spread on everything. Do not overload your bread with this spread because it will cause your sandwich to slide all over your grill and create an oozy mess on your grill and not in your mouth!
I am impressed with myself because although this recipe uses jalapeño peppers, I was not afraid to make it. I did not wear gloves but I was very conscious of where my hands were at all times. No burning seeds in my eyes! This recipe has inspired me to make more things with jalapeño peppers, maybe even actual jalapeño poppers! The jalapeño peppers are tender and keep that crispy and smoky flavour. I grilled the peppers in the oven and I can only imagine the intensity of flavour that would come from grilling these peppers on the barbecue.
The cheddar cheese adds another level of cheesy ridiculousness that is indulgent and a bit extreme. I would love to try this recipe with colby jack (the other cheese Simply Scratch recommends).The buttery, crispy bread simulated the flavour and texture of deep fried batter. Yums.
If you are craving bar food and can’t make it to a bar, make this grilled cheese. If you are craving a grilled cheese sandwich, make this grilled cheese.
