Has it been awhile since you felt guilty about something? If it has, make this bread, eat the hell out of it, and be prepared to feel nothing but shame. If it hasn’t, make it anyway. It’s so good. I’m obsessed with jalapenos and cheese.
I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like….I take that back. Yes I have. He was a prick. There was this one time I was sampling some cheeses and this dude at the counter gave me a chunk of blue cheese. I was trying to find a decent blue cheese to make blue cheese dressing for wings. That’s another obsession. Do I have a problem? At least it’s not a crack addiction, right? Anyway, It was so strong and nasty foot tasting, I almost threw up right there. I spit it out in the garbage can. Joe said my face was all red and sweaty. I should have got the name of that cheese…Now that I think about it, I spit out the cheese. In a trash can. In front of the deli counter. In a public place. Sometimes you have to go with instinct.
Get yourself a nice loaf of french bread, mmk? Cut it in half lengthwise.
Add 1/3 C each of shredded mozzarella, monterrey jack, and cheddar cheese to a bowl. I like to buy the block cheese and then shred by hand rather than the pre-shredded stuff. It tastes better and is softer so it melts better.
Add 4oz room temperature cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of room temp butter and 1 Tablespoon of mayo to the shredded cheese. Mix together.
Dice a jalapeno. I wear gloves when I do this because I inevitably will rub my eye, even after washing my hands, and will not be able to see for the rest of the day. I leave the seeds in cause I like it spicy. Take em out if
you’re a wuss you want. Add to cheese mixture.
Put halved bread on a baking sheet. Ssschmear mixture over each half . Top with sliced jalapenos.
Bake 400 degrees x 15 minutes, broil 1-2 minutes until cheese starts to brown.
Cut into pieces.
