Jalapeño Popper Panini printPrint Recipe

  • 1 TJ's Jalapeño pepper, sliced in half lengthwise and de-seeded
  • 3 Tbsp TJ's Mascarpone Cheese
  • 2 TJ's Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese Slices
  • 1 TJ's Panini Roll, sliced in half
  • 1/2 Tbsp TJ's Butter

**Use gloves while handling Jalapeño Peppers** Preheat broiler. Line a small baking sheet with foil. Place the pepper slices skin side up on the baking sheet and broil 3-4 inches from the broiler heat source. Let the peppers roast for 3-4 minutes or until they are charred and the skin is blistered, and mostly black. Remove from the oven, place in a plastic bag and seal for about 15 minutes to steam off the charred skin. After steaming, remove the charred skin and set peppers aside. Butter outsides of each roll half. Place halves butter-side down on a plate, then layer inside bottom half of roll as follows: cheddar, mascarpone, peppers, mascarpone, cheddar top of roll. Place in electric grill press or a hot skillet and grill 2-3 minutes on each side while pressing by hand with a manual grill press or a heavy pan.
