Ingredients

  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 jalapeno peppers
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 12 slices multigrain bread
  • 6 slices smoked provolone cheese
  • 12 cooked bacon strips

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. Remove papery outer skin from garlic bulb, but do not peel or separate the cloves. Cut off top of garlic bulb, exposing individual cloves. Drizzle cut cloves with oil. Sprinkle with salt. Wrap in foil. Bake until cloves are soft, 25-35 minutes. Unwrap and cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, cut peppers lengthwise in half; remove stems and seeds. Place peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet, skin side up. Broil 4 in. from heat until skins blister, about 5 minutes. Immediately place peppers in a small bowl; let stand, covered, 10 minutes. Peel off and discard charred skin. Cut pepper strips in half.
Preheat griddle over medium heat. In a small bowl, squeeze garlic from skins; mash with a fork. Beat in cream cheese, Parmesan cheese and Worcestershire sauce until blended. Spread butter over one side of each bread slice. Spread cheese mixture over unbuttered side of six bread slices. Layer each with jalapeno pepper pieces, 1 slice provolone cheese and 2 bacon strips. Top with remaining bread slices, buttered side up. Grill sandwiches until golden brown and cheese is melted, 4-6 minutes on each side. Yield: 6 servings.
