Jalapeno Garlic “Pull Apart” Cheesy Bread

25 Jun


Authors Note: So I started my Garden over a month ago, (I’m sure i’ll do a post about that soon too) and well I have an abundance of jalapenos and sometimes you can have enough salsa, so I have been adding Jalapenos to almost anything to see what else i can use it in, and really Jalapenos in anything is a good thing, but this recipe I had to share!

Pull apart bread is a yummy snack to enjoy with family and friends! All sorts of things can be added to this recipe, and if you can’t handle the spice, don’t add the jalapenos! We had a pizza night yesterday and i had left over pizza dough so weather you make your own dough or store bought dough this recipe is pretty easy to throw together. I used a bread pan to bake it in, which gave it a thick crispy side that was to DIE for.  If you don’t have a bread pan, a cookie sheet will do too. Now this is what you’ll need:

Jalapeno Garlic “Pull Apart” Cheesy Bread

  • 1 lb pizza dough, homemade or store bought, (I recommend Rhodes Bread Dough in the freezer section.)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby jack
  • 1-2 Jalapenos sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (depending on how bad you wanna be) you don’t NEED it, but it does taste better with it.
  1. Preheat oven @ 350 degrees.  Mix melted butter and garlic together, use some of that butter mixture to lather up the sides and bottom of the pan.
  2. Separate the dough into two equal parts, we are going to layer dough and cheese. First the dough goes down in little pieces, this is what makes the bread easy to “pull apart” after its done baking. So pull apart the dough in little section about a 1-2 inches each. Start placing them at the bottom of the pan, don’t worry if the whole pan isn’t covered it will spread together as it bakes.
  3. Then use half of each of the cheeses and sprinkle over the dough, now throw on those jalapenos on top.
  4. Now place the rest of the dough balls in and then the rest of the cheese. Last but not least…the garlic butter! Pour it all over the dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes! Enjoy the smell of that bread in your oven! Your welcome!



Breakfast “Grilled Cheese”

21 Mar


I’m normally a bacon and eggs kind of girl, but every once in a while I will crave syrupy sweetness in the morning, and this does the trick. I’m sure it be nice for a naughty late night snack as well. It is really easy, takes less then 6 minutes and you probably have the ingredients in your fridge.

Dessert/Breakfast “Grilled Cheese”
2 Eggo Waffles
Cream cheese
Jelly or Preserves (Whatever flavor suits you.)
Syrup & Powdered Sugar (Optional)

1. Heat up griddle on medium to high, Lightly butter both sides of  FROZEN Eggos and place on griddle.  When you feel them thaw a bit and get golden flip them, then add your desired amount of jelly and cream cheese.


2. Place other Eggo on top of the other, making a sandwich, and viola! I was extra bad and garnished with a little syrup and powdered sugar. Cut it, and shared it with my little one! We enjoy this indulgence together making it extra special!

(I took pictures on my phone so sorry for the quality) This picture does no justice for your taste buds!


Turkey Bacon Melt

20 Feb


If you love hot sandwiches,  you’ve got to try this mouthwatering creation! Kind of like a BLT/Club minus the lettuce and replace with LOVE! Add gooey yummy cheeses and Viola!, you got yourself a delicious and always super simple dinner! Boyfriend and Toddler approved! Got the idea of making this from mrfood.com, but added a different spin. Check it out original here. This can easily make 8-10 servings  and taste great next day for lunch.


Turkey Bacon Melt

2 -8 oz package refrigerated Pillsbury crescent rolls 

1- 1 1/2 lb. Turkey slices

10 slices bacon, already cooked

2 Cups Mozzarella shredded cheese

8 Slices of Munster Cheese (any cheese will do, but this is what I had)

3-4 Tomatoes Sliced

Dashes of Pepper and Garlic Powder

4 eggs, beaten


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of an 8×10 dish very well or use preachment paper. Then place your first crescent roll dough on the bottom, push it flat getting all the corners in tightly.


2. Start Layering! I did Cheese, Turkey, Tomato, Bacon, Cheese. I also sprinkled Pepper and Garlic Powder after my Tomatoes to season them up. Get one solid layer down and poor half of your eggs on top of the layers. Then go ahead and use up the rest  of the ingredients.


3. Gently place the second crescent roll dough on top of the layers and with your reaming eggs drizzle it over, make sure it lays all over the dough, feel free to brush the egg to get the entire top, this makes a better color for the finish product.


4.Place foil over the pan (be careful with this, in the past it has gotten stuck on dough,  if this happens just gently pull it off), and bake in oven for 25 minutes, uncover the foil, and bake for another 25 minutes or until golden brown. Now for the hard part, Waiting!,  At least 10-15 minutes before cutting so it sets solid (As you can see in the picture my little one was anxious) & Enjoy! You can really mix and match any kinds of meat and cheese! Get creative, let me know what you think or your twist on it!
