The most popular jalapeno Poppers are transformed into a grilled cheese. Waffle maker made! Easy and no mess!


  • Four jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise
  • Eight slices of bacon
  • Eight pieces of whole-wheat bread
  • Softened cream cheese, four tablespoons
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to broil.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place the jalapenos on the baking sheet with their cut side facing up. Place in oven and roast until skin is blackened (about 6-8 minutes). Let the skin cool down before removing it from the oven.
  • Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook for 6-8 minutes until crispy and brown. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Preheat a waffle maker to medium heat. Waffle irons can be lightly oiled on the top and bottom or coated with nonstick spray.
  • Spread cream cheese with a butter knife on the one side of every slice of bread. Place the pieces in the waffle maker, cream-side up. Work in batches. Add cheese, jalapenos, and bacon. Top with remaining bread slices. Close gently and cook for 3-4 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately
