Jalapeño Popper Pull-apart Bread
It’s no secret that I love football season. There’s something about the fact that it takes place during my favorite time of year, involves much of my favorite foods, and gives me an excuse to root for my beloved Packers that makes me go a bit nuts for it. Speaking of the food, I really can’t get enough- Chili, dips, snacks of all kinds- I love them all. Given last week kicked off football season, I just had to create a fun football snack for you all. (And the fact that it has my favorite team’s signature Green & Gold in the mix doesn’t hurt!)
For this bread I started with a beautiful loaf of this crusty bread. (I love any excuse to make it really!) After cutting a “grid” of sorts into the bread all the way down to the bottom crust, I stuffed all the makings of jalapeño poppers into all the crevices. I started with thin slices of jalapeño peppers*, and then finished with lots of cream cheese, scallions and cheddar. The whole thing gets baked until the peppers get all soft, the cheeses get melty, and everything gets all gooey and crisp. I can’t think of a better addition to your gameday spread!
Plus, this whole “stuff things into bread thing” is pretty addicting…what other ideas do you have for me?
*I’m sure everyone else know this but me, but please do yourself a favor and wear gloves when dealing with hot peppers. I learned this lesson the hard way!!
Jalapeño Popper Pull-apart Bread
- 1 round loaf of crusty bread, (sourdough would be good too)
- 4 medium-sized jalapeño peppers, sliced thinly with the seeds removed.
- 1 8 oz pack of cream cheese, frozen until firm enough to slice
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1 scallion, thinly sliced
- salt & pepper
- Using a sharp serrated knife, slice a grid into the top of the bread- cutting down to the bottom of the loaf but not all the way through.
- Stuff the peppers in each of the crevices, all the way down to the bottom. The more edges that have filling the better! Slice the cream cheese and stuff it in with the peppers. Continue with the scallions and then sprinkle the grated cheese on top. Add a bit of salt & pepper.
- Bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes or until the cheeses are melted and golden. Serve warm.

This looks like it was put in the oven for a while to melt the cheeses, but I don’t see that in the instructions. It sounds yummy.
I would love to try this – think it would go over really well at my house! I have to agree about baking instructions…I kept looking but couldn’t find any.
Says to bake 375 for 15 to 20 min
or until cheese is melted and golden and to serve warm….doing this tonight can’t wait but I’m adding Carano hot cappy.
Well that would help wouldn’t it! That’s what happens when I write blog posts late at night. Fixed!
Thanks Audra! Making this over the weekend for a family gathering. You gotta get some rest….don’t stay up too late, but please keep these yummy recipes coming! :-)
I absolutely love the sounds of this. I mean, jalapeño and cheddar are best friends!
Sounds yummy and its the perfect color! GO PACK GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok ok, I can’t get on board with the green and gold theme (I’m from Chicago, after all), but I can get on board with cheesy spicy carbs. This looks amazing.
i need to give you some of the jalapeño peppers i canned from this summer!!!
Mmm this looks amazing!!! Love all the flavors, and such a fun treat to share with friends :)
Oh. My . Goodness. This looks amazing, and I want some now!!!!! I know what I’m making over the weekend!
Making this for Sunday brunch at my mom’s! I have made your recipe for the crusty bread, and I loved it!! (what’s not to love about homemade bread) but I think I’ll try a sour dough loaf.
Great version for pull apart bread! I actually posted a jalapeno popper recipe for football today too!
Oh man I would eat the whole loaf. I love this!
I looooove stuffed bread, especially if it involves cheese! This looks gorgeous with those beautiful vibrant colors!
Do you think I can just refuse to watch any football ever again unless it includes a loaf of this? That seems reasonable.
OH. MY. YUM.
I would eat this whole thing all by myself.
This is definite football food. Absolutely adore this recipe!
Bacon makes everything better…just sayin!
What size loaf does this recipe require; it looks like a small one from the size of the jalapeno laying on the parchment
I know I am a little late to posting a response but I loved this idea…I had never seen anything like this before! Thank you!
I’VE MADE THIS BEFORE AND WRAPPED IT ALL UP IN FOIL BEFORE BAKING!
I have noticed you don’t monetize your website, but you
can earn additional bucks every day. It is very easy even for noobs,
if you are interested simply search in gooogle: pandatsor’s tools
I wonder how this would be with pickled sliced jalapeños?
I think delish!
i need a good diy bun recipe to make this in single servings. that would be great! you got one? something like a brioche bun?
