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
  • 1 pinch 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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I just spent a full hour making two sandwiches. I know why the recipe does not include prep time. My husband also loved it, but too peppery for me. Otherwise, not too bad, but would have to be superfantastic to be worth all the hassle. Also, where's the nutrition information?

Go to another site, we won't miss you!

Seems some people aren't happy getting things for free. What an idiot. What gall to actually complain about ads. I usually never comment unless I have tried a recipe but I could not sit back and say nothing after reading sewshats 8660791 complaint.

You're doing it again. I'm getting ads in with my recipes...mostly for Kuerig coffeemakers and kcups. I don't want these ads in with my recipes I print on my computer. I want one recipe on one side of each 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper to fit in a notebook of your recipes. I can't buy or go to any website from this notebook of recipes. PLEASE TAKE THOSE ADS OUT OF YOUR RECIPES! I don't want to print them!!!!!!!!!!! I will stop coming to this site for recipes if this situation is not solved. We went thru this when you changed your website a few months ago. GET RID OF THOSE ADS! Thank You.

You're not being charged for membership to this site nor are you being charged to download print those recipes. The price of a free service like this is a certain amount of advertising. Stop ranting and either deal with it or try and find a similar site that gives you as much as Mr. Food gives without the ads. I suspect that you won't have much luck.

Oh PLEASE don't hurt Mr. Food by going somewhere else for recipes! PLEASE DON"T DO THAT!!!!!!!!!

People, you Rate & Comment recipes here not Rant & Complain. There is a link at the bottom of Mr. Food's website called "Contact Us" that you should use for your problems with the website. Novel idea isn't it?

Hmmm, I print recipes from Mr. Food and the ads do not print. If you use the "print" button at the top of the recipe, only the recipe prints. I agree with vk31mk8935178. I get tired of reading the rants & raves here. Use the "contact us".

What ads are you talking about?? I do NOT get any ads.if I print out a recipe. Maybe you need to know how to print out a recipe I have selections on my printer and can highlight only what I want on a page most all printers are capable of doing this Maybe you need to understand how to print out a page OR...Maybe you need to get a newer, better printer Maybe you need to get a new virus detector or a better one that keeps out most ads.... AND/ OR. Maybe you need to calm down and appreciate this website that tries so hard to please everyone They are not responsible! OH and by the way Hubby LOVED this sandwich... different & delicious Thank you Howard and team! Such great ideas ! keep'em coming and ignore angry hostile immature people
