Jalapeño Popper Bread is so good you won't be able to stop eating it! Spicy, cheesy, and bacon-y too.
Whether you’re a sports fan or not, when the biggest game in football rolls around, it’s time to gather your friends and family for a fun night. You can have some fun talking smack as you cheer on your favorite team, or maybe you really love those creative, funny commercials. I love football, but I always look forward to the commercials more than the game itself.
As everyone comes together it’s nice to have something a little special and out of the ordinary to drink during the festivities. Beer is a must, but then I always like a fun cocktail. Margaritas anyone? Or maybe infused iced tea? Next, you need finger foods. Something easy to nosh on as you chat with your party-goers. That’s where this jalapeño popper bread comes in.
This pull-apart bread is quick and easy to make, which leaves you free to enjoy your party. A tender round boule of bread is cut into deep 1-inch pieces, then into all those divides goes butter, cheese, jalapeños and the only other logical choice clearly would be to add some bacon! This is a loaf of bread that just demands bacon.
Once you slide this loaded loaf into the oven and bake it for a bit, out emerges stringy, melty, cheesy goodness. Pull off a piece and you’ll see what I mean. Just a slight spice tickles your tongue from the jalapeño pieces which plays nicely with the sharpness of the cheddar and saltiness from the bacon. This is perfect game day food, but also makes a great appetizer for any occasion.
Whichever team you're rooting for this coming Sunday, make sure this jalapeño popper bread is part of your party grub. I'd classify it as guy food except that I love it too much! It's just as good for book club.
