If you have a hankering for jalapeño poppers but don’t have the time, this is a great alternative. This recipe will also work well with pre-made garlic bread.
Caution: this recipe is spicy! Reduce the number of jalapeños used if you don’t have a high chilli tolerance.
150 grams butter, softened
4 cloves garlic, minced
250 grams cream cheese, softened
¼ cup chopped pickled jalapeños, plus extra for on top
¼ cup grated mozzarella
¼ cup grated cheddar cheese, plus extra for on top
In a bowl, mix together butter and 2 cloves of the chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
Slice the baguette in half lengthways and spread the garlic butter over the baguette. Grill for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
In a bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients, season with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture over the garlic bread and spread it out evenly. Top with a little extra grated cheddar cheese and pickled jalapenos. Grill for 5 minutes or until bubbling and becoming golden brown.
