Well, now that the weather is getting colder, the kids are back in school and women everywhere are getting traded in for Football games, that can only mean one thing~FOOD!
~That’s right, we’re eating our feelings and they are delicious..lol! 🙂
Nothing says Fall like ooey-gooey, cheesy, finger foods that will help everyone nosh & nibble the colder days away!
These Jalapeno Popper Melts are everything we know and love about a typical Jalapeno Popper, combined with all of the double-handed greatness of a succulent sandwich!
And not just any Sandwich..this sandwich is coated in crushed, butterd and toasted Pretzels that will make you feel like you’re in the best sports bar ever, minus the gigantic tab!
What you’ll need for a few Melts..(this is only a method, so double accordingly for more):
Good sliced Bread..I used Whole Grain
Good Cheese..I used sliced Colby-Jack
2 cups Pretzels..crushed, I used a food processor, but by hand will work too!
CRISPY BACON IS OPTIONAL! I didn’t use it this time! 🙂
1/4 cup Milk
In a small bowl mix the Egg and Milk…set aside…
Crush your Pretzels into a coarse chop, put them in a shallow bowl and set aside..
Slice up the Jalapenos..BE CAREFUL THEY’RE HOT!
Build your Sandwich by smearing one side with some Cream Cheese…
Now add the Jalapenos, and the Cheese…
Give both sides a nice dip into the Egg…
And then, both sides generously into the crushed Pretzels…
Now butter up your pan/sillet/griddle and grill that baby up on both sides. Just until the Pretzels are golden and the Cheese is melty…
Plate her up, and get your spicy, ooey-gooey ON! ~Enjoy! 🙂
That looks delicious!
I’m going to have to try this! Thank you.
Just another cautionary tale about touching jalapenos:
I used to be able to touch them with no problem, then a couple times my fingers started burning, I was able to use a rubbing alcohol soak to get rid of the stinging. The LAST time, I cut them with no issue until 1/2 hour to 45 minutes later when the burning sensation on my hands started. I googled to find a way to relieve the burning since the rubbing alcohol didn’t work. I tried almost every suggestion on google (I refused to pee on my own hands, no matter how desperate I am) but nothing helped. I learned too late that nothing worked because by that time the “juice” had soaked into my skin and could not be washed out. 8 agonizing hours of plunging my hands into ice water until I couldn’t stand the cold and then taking them out until I couldn’t stand the burning. I love jalapenos but would caution everyone to find gloves to wear while cutting, then dispose of immediately and of course, as you suggest, DON’T touch anything before washing your hands because the “juice” can soak through cheap gloves.
