THE AMAZING GRILLED CHEESE!

Why, hello there! We haven’t spoken in quite some time. I’ve been super busy because I got a FULL TIME JOB! Heck yeah!! Go me! It’s hard enough finding a job out there now-a-days, but to find one you actually enjoy… that’s an epic feat. OK, so I am bringing sexy back with this recipe. Do you love jalapeno poppers? I know I do, especially the ones that are double fried. Yeah. Ask your server about it next time. FOR. REAL. Well, since I have an affinity for jalapeno poppers and since I stumbled upon this recipe, I’m putting it out there for you. It is so freakin’ good! So here’s the recipe and some pictures.

JalapeƱo Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Servings: makes 1 sandwich

Prep Time: 34 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, cut in half lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 slices sour dough bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup jack and cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon tortilla chips, crumbled
Directions
  1. Place the peppers on a baking sheet with the cut side facing down.
  2. Place the baking sheet on the top shelf in the oven and broil until the outer layer of the skin has blackened, about 8-14 minutes.
  3. Place the peppers on a separate plate and let them cool until you can handle them, about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the skins from the peppers. The skins should easily “pinch” off.
  5. Assemble sandwich and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.

(That last step should be pretty self explanatory, but for those of you who need a map when it comes to the kitchen, here’s what you do…Butter the pan side of both slices of bread, spread your cream cheese on one piece of bread, place jalapenos on top of that, sprinkle shredded cheese and tortilla chips. Place other piece of bread on top, press down, place on griddle and GO TO TOWN!)

SHAZAAM! If that’s not the best dang grilled cheese you ever done had, I will stop talkin’ like a crazy hick!

Another picture you say? My pleasure!



Holy Moley! So good! I. MUST. EAT. NOW.

Enjoy and happy kitchening!

The Best Grilled Cheese EVER!

Did everyone have a good week? I hope so! I was in the car most of Thursday and Friday and our show in Boone went well. I guess kids up there don’t know what real rock and roll music is because they complained we were too loud. Seriously? Anywho… THIS RECIPE… you guys will absolutely die! Grilled cheese sandwiches have always been a really easy treat to make, but a BUFFALO CHICKEN GRILLED CHEESE?!?! I might just die! You won’t need too much for this recipe and you can always substitute certain things. By the way, I kind of have an obsession with buffalo sauce, so that probably explains a lot.

Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup cooked shredded chicken, warm
  • 1 tbsp FRANKS RED HOT SAUCE
  • 1/2 tbsp mayo (optional)
  • 1 tbsp grated carrot
  • 1 tbsp sliced celery
  • 1 tbsp green or red onion, sliced or diced
  • 1 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • sliced rye bread

Directions: Mix the chicken, hot sauce, mayo, carrot, celery and onion in a small bowl. Butter grill side of bread. Put the chicken mixture on the bread, top with cheeses and cook until sandwich is golden brown and cheese is melted.

And there ya have it. This sandwich is like a party in your mouth… and who doesn’t love to party? I’ve found that using rotisserie chicken is pretty easy. It’s much easier than boiling chicken, waiting for it to cool and shredding it.

Enjoy your weekend and if you live here in Atlanta, get outside. It’s beautiful out today! Irene can’t touch this!
