Stuffed Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese

When I first saw this idea I was pretty skeptical but I figured if it works for Rachael Ray, I should give it a shot.  I can honestly say I will probably never make a “normal” grilled cheese again. This was beyond amazing. A grilled cheese that tastes like stuffed garlic cheese bread!

Ingredients:
2 slices of bread
2-3 cheese slices (any variety you prefer)
2 tbsp. mayo
Garlic powder
Parmesan
Italian seasoning

Mix mayo with a few dashes of garlic powder, parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Heat pan on stove top to medium. Spread mayo mixture on one side of each piece of bread. Put bread mayo mixture face down, layer on cheese. I used American, mozzarella and pepper jack. Place other slide of bread on top. Cook until golden brown on both sides.


Wanna step it up a notch? Throw in a few pieces of pepperoni, bacon bits or jalapenos.  This is a total game changer.

Jalapeno Popper Cheese Bread

I love anything to do with jalapeno poppers. I’m also a sucker for cheese bread. So this was a marriage of the utmost happiest for my taste buds.

Ingredients:
1 loaf of french bread
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 mayo
1/2 cup jalapeno slices, divided
1 tbsp. parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or Colby jack cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Cut the bread lengthwise and place both parts face up on the sheet.  Brush both pieces with melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder.  Cover with a piece of aluminum foil and place in the oven.  Bake for 5 minutes.

In the meantime, divide the jalapenos. Save the pretty slices to place on top of the bread (About 1/4 cup). Chop the rest. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, chopped jalapenos, parmesan, salt and pepper.


Remove the bread from the oven and uncover. Spread the jalapeno dip mixture on the bread. Top with remaining jalapenos and the shredded cheese. Bake for 5 more minutes or until cheese begins turning golden brown.
