Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Bread

Ooey gooey cheese, crisp bacon and jalapenos come together to create the cheesiest, most scrumptious bread you have ever sunk your teeth into. Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Bread.  Your mouth will thank you.

Have I mentioned I love cheese?  I am pretty sure it may have come up a time or two (or three).  If I could live on cheese I would be completely happy.  Lately I have been on a flavor kick. Cheese, jalapenos and bacon=yes!!!  Jalapeno poppers.  I can't get enough of them.

I made jalapeno poppers on the grill last summer and decided to try those flavors in Jalapeño Popper Cheesy Pretzel Bombs they were so good I thought I would lose my mind!  Packed with ooey gooey cheese, bacon and jalapenos they are insanely delish. Next came the Cheesy Bacon Jalapeño Popper Beer Bread moist and delicious flavorful bread was absolutely perfect.  Grilled cheese, french toast and everywhere in between makes this an amazing recipe.   

I have been craving cheese bread and thought that this was the perfect place to transform my traditional garlic cheesy bread into something spectacular.  I mixed together cream cheese, cooked bacon, diced jalapenos and yummy cheddar cheese and spread it across a loaf of fresh french bread.  Once the bread is baked in the oven the cheese becomes melty and the flavors come together.  After 2 minutes under the broiler is becomes the incredible creation that you won't be able to get enough of.

I tell you we ate almost the whole loaf.  Even munchkin said "this is sisey (spicy) but I really like it mommy".  Score!  3 out of 3 make this a complete winner in my house and I am sure you will love it too!

With love from our kitchen table to yours.

Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Bread
1 loaf French/Italian bread
8 ounces cream cheese, softened*
12 ounces bacon, cooked and chopped
4 ounce can diced jalapenos
2 cups grated mild cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, bacon, jalapenos and cheese.  Stir until well combined.

Cut the loaf of bread in half lengthwise.  Spread the cheese mixture on the bread.  Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven.  Turn oven to broil for 1-2 minutes until cheese is bubbly.

Remove from oven.  Place on a cutting board and slice bread as desired. Serve and enjoy!

*COOK’S NOTE:  The cream cheese is easier to work with if it has been on the counter for 30 minutes.  But if you forgot you can whip them together with a hand mixer just as easily.
