Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich takes the classic comfort of grilled cheese and infuses it with the spicy, creamy flavors of a jalapeño popper. It’s an indulgent and flavorful twist on the traditional sandwich.


  • 4 slices of bread (sourdough or your choice)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Optional: 1/4 cup of chopped green onions or cilantro for added flavor


  1. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, chopped jalapeños, and crumbled bacon. Add green onions or cilantro if desired.
  2. Butter one side of each bread slice. Flip two slices over (buttered side down) and spread the cheese and jalapeño mixture on them.
  3. Place the other two bread slices on top of the mixture, buttered side up, to form two sandwiches.
  4. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Once hot, place the sandwiches in the skillet.
  5. Grill the sandwiches for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted, pressing down lightly with a spatula to compact everything.
  6. Once cooked, remove the sandwiches from the skillet and let them sit for a minute before cutting.
  7. Cut the sandwiches in half and serve warm.
