Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese

Everyone’s favorite jalapeño poppers made into the most epic grilled cheese. Made in a waffle maker! EASY and no mess!

Ingredients:

  • 4 jalapeños, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place jalapeños onto the prepared baking sheet, cut side down. Place into oven and roast just until the skin has blackened, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before peeling off the skin.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. With a butter knife, spread cream cheese on one side of each slice of bread. Working in batches, place slices, cream cheese side up,  into the waffle iron. Top with jalapeños, bacon, cheese and remaining bread slices, cream cheese side down. Close gently and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately.
