Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Beer Battered Crust

Prep Time 6 min

Cook Time 6 min

Total Time 12 mins


    For the Beer Batter

    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
    • 1 bottle (12 oz) beer. I used Corona but any regular wheat beer will work.

    To Make the Sandwich

    • White or Wheat Bread
    • Butter
    • Cream Cheese, softened (about 3 oz per sandwich)
    • Sliced Jalapenos
    • Salsa (optional)


      To Make the Batter:

      1. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk to combine.
      2. Add enough beer to make the batter thin enough to dip the bread in...I used about 3/4 of a bottle so start with a half bottle and continue to add until the desired consistency.

      To Make the Sandwich:

      1. Dip each bread slice into the batter, covering both sides. Fry in a medium hot frying pan with enough butter in the bottom to not have it stick to the pan.
      2. Spread the cream cheese on both sides of the bread; top one side with japapeno slices and warm until the cheese is softened and warm. Put the two sides together, cut in half and serve.
      3. Optional: serve salsa on the side

      Recipe Notes

      There is enough beer batter for approximately 4 sandwiches.
