Grilled Cheese & Pepper Sandwiches Recipe

This is a tasty and wholesome sandwich to make for one or two. It’s a nice twist on a grilled cheese, very tasty and filling and especially good with rye bread. —Arline Hofland, Deer Lodge, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 slices rye bread with caraway seeds
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  • 1. Butter one side of each slice of bread with 1/2 teaspoon butter; set aside. In a small skillet, saute onion and peppers in oil until tender. Spoon onto two buttered bread slices; top with cheese and remaining bread. Spread outsides of sandwiches with remaining butter.

"This was a great, easy meal. I added ham and a few pieces of pepperoni, omitted the jalapeno and used pepper jack cheese instead. 'Pretty near excellent', as my husband said."

"This was so good! I used cheese and jalapeno bread from the bakery at our local grocery store and it was amazing! I'm surprised it doesn't have many reviews :-)"
