Maria Vasseur was the big winner of the Mezzetta Make That Sandwich Contest with her version of a jalapeno popper. This sandwich is bursting with flavor and after just one bite, you'll know exactly why she won first place!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 2 slices crisply cooked bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers, drained and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Greek peperoncini, drained and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons roasted red bell peppers, drained and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sundried tomatoes in olive oil, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped scallion
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 slices firm white bread
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
What To Do:
  1. In a medium bowl, combine shredded cheeses, cream cheese, bacon, jalapenos, peperoncini, red peppers, sundried tomatoes, and scallions, mixing well.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together butter, olive oil, crushed garlic, and salt. Reserve half of butter mixture. Spread remaining butter mixture on one side of each slice of bread. Place 2 slices of bread, butter side down, on work surface. Spread half of cheese mixture on each slice. Top with remaining bread slices, butter side up.
  3. In a shallow dish, place breadcrumbs. Dredge both sides of sandwiches in bread crumbs, gently pressing so breadcrumbs adhere.
  4. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat reserved butter mixture. Place sandwiches in skillet and cook until bottoms are golden brown. Flip sandwiches and continue cooking until the other sides are golden brown and cheese is melted. Cut sandwiches in triangles, if desired, and serve immediately.
