Snack Like a Southerner: Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich


2 jalapeños
4 slices white bread
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Arla Original cream cheese spread
6 slices Arla Muenster cheese slices

Step One:
"Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 450 degrees F. Place the peppers on a baking sheet covered with foil and bake until the skins are completely wrinkled and charred, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and place in a plastic baggie and seal. Let sit for 10-15 minutes."

Step Two:
"Remove from the bag and rub the loosened skin off of the jalapeños. Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the ribs and seeds. Slice into ribbons and set aside."

Step Three:
"Spread the slices of bread with 1 tablespoon of butter on one side of each slice of bread, then stack the buttered sides together."

Step Four:
"For each sandwich, place one piece of muenster cheese on the stacked bread then spread 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese spread on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with half of the roasted jalapeño then top with 2 more slices of muenster cheese."

Step Five:
"Place bread buttered side down in a fry pan over medium heat and top with the other side of bread, buttered side up. Cover with a lid and let cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden."

Step Six:
"Reduce the heat to medium-low and flip the sandwich to the other side and cook for 2-3 minutes or until bread is toasty golden and cheese has melted. The second side will cook faster than the first so watch carefully."

Step Seven:
"Cut in half and enjoy hot."
