Bacon Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese
According to those around me I’m a Weirdo with a capital W. It’s not because I insist on talking to my dog, or even because I think cupcakes should be a food group.

It’s because I LOVE the cold weather. This past week we’ve been experiencing chillier weather here in PA. Chillier weather makes me crave classic comfort food. What could be more comforting than a grilled cheese?

Growing up mine were made with Kraft American, however this bacon jalapeno popper grilled cheese is a bit “fancier”. This bacon jalapeno popper grilled cheese would be perfect for watching the big game too (Go Cowboys!!).
