Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Garlic Bread
I love jalapeno poppers. Jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese are a great thing. The peppers mellow a bit. The creamy cheese cools the heat. So, why not put those same great tastes together and make a jalapeno popper cheesy garlic bread? Yes, why not!
- 1 loaf Italian bread
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder divided
- 4 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
- 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices whole
Preheat your oven to 400 F.
Cut bread in half lengthwise.
Brush the insides with the melted butter and sprinkle with the garlic powder.
Bake for 5 minutes to get the bread a little crispy.
Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, chopped jalapenos, salt and pepper.
When the bread has cooked spread both sides with the cream cheese mixture.
Sprinkle with cheese and add the jalapeno slices.
Bake for another 4-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Slice and serve.
