So I bought some sourdough and made this yummy deliciousness; a Jalapeno Grilled Cheese! Oh my word was it delicious and it had just the right amount if spice to it for myself but a tiny bit too much for the hubs and way too much for the kiddos.
First thing I did was ever so carefully slice the peppers in half and remove the seeds. As a note, it is a good idea to wear gloves and to dispose of them after use. Do NOT to touch your eyes especially after handing these potent, innocent looking green beauties. I baked them in the oven flesh down in the oven at 400 degrees after tossing them with a little extra virgin olive oil and sprinkling with a tad of salt. I let them bake for about 12 minutes until the skin on them blistered. I removed them and let them cool a bit. In the meantime, I sliced some generous slices of the sourdough, lightly buttered one side of each with butter and the side of one slice with cream cheese. I added a slice of cheddar and lined a piece with the roasted jalapenos. Then in classic grilled cheese fashion, I added the other side of the buttered bread and cooked on medium heat in a pan.
This is the result:
Boy was it amazing!
It is something that I will make again, especially during Lent as I often eat vegetarian sandwiches when meat is being omitted from my diet. I think this would be amazing with the addition of mushrooms to add to the heartiness as well as a few tomato slices!
If you want to add a but of creaminess to your grilled cheese, add some cream cheese and for kick, be adventurous and add some yummy jalapeno!
