- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 4 slices crispy cooked bacon
- 2 slices Monterey Jack cheese
- 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
- 4 slices Italian bread
- Chopped cilantro (optional)
- Pats of butter
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Fill each jalapeño half with approximately 1 ounce of cream cheese. Bake the stuffed jalapeños on a baking sheet for 25-30 minutes, then remove from the oven.
- On two slices of bread, place 1 slice of cheddar cheese each. On the other two slices, place 1 slice of Monterey Jack cheese each. Slice the cooked stuffed jalapeños into bite-size pieces and distribute them on the cheddar-covered slices. Add the bacon to the Monterey Jack-covered slices. Optionally, sprinkle chopped cilantro on one side.
- Combine the slices to create 2 sandwiches.
- Top each sandwich with several pats of butter. Place them in a skillet over medium-low heat, butter side down. Grill each side until lightly browned, ensuring that the cheese becomes melted and gooey.
