A couple weeks ago I showed you this great recipe for Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bread and it was so yummy but if you know me, the whole time I was thinking about how I was going to change the recipe. My wheels were turning with each bite I shoved in my mouth. So the next week I made three more and considering one member of the house is counting her calories, one doesn't like cheese, that only leaves The Fireman to eat two loaves of french bread. In the next two weeks I will show you the other ones I made. They are perfect for Super Bowl parties. See...I am thinking about you!! This happened to be The Fireman's favorite. I made it for The Tortured Teenager while she was home this Christmas. She agrees, it's a winner. The beauty of this is that there is nothing to this recipe. Literally! So maybe you dont want to share this while I want you to.
Cheesy Jalapeno Bread
recipe adapted from The Country Cook
1 loaf of french bread
1 package pepper jack cheese
1 cube of unsalted butter (ok buy salted but I watch my salt intake)
1 tsp garlic powder
yep thats it!
Take a bread knife and carefully slice the loaf into slices without slicing through the bottom
then slice lengthwise again without slicing though the bottom. it may look like it is is squished but once you add the cheese it'll pop back to life
This is when I transfer the loaf to a large amount of foil big enough to wrap it in.Now take the pepper jack cheese and stuff into each slice.
