Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese? I’m sure you know by now that April is National Grilled Cheese Month. Just because the month is over doesn’t mean this sandwich isn’t worth bookmarking, pinning, saving, and making. It’s divine! When contemplating which way I wanted to take the grilled cheese sandwich I was inspired by my original Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich. If you aren’t in the mood for a grilled cheese (which I’m not sure how you couldn’t be after watching my video!) you can also check out my Jalapeño Popper Dip or plain and simple Jalapeño Poppers!
I wanted to add a little twist and update to this phenomenal recipe. So I did just that. Check it out and see for yourself. P.s. I love comments, so if you like what you see, let me know!
