This Cheesy Cheddar Scallion Jalapeño Bread Recipe is basically a riff on garlic bread. It's got even more punchy flavor to it! Spiciness from the jalapeño, sharp cheddar flavor and gooeyness from the cheddar cheese, punchiness from the green onion, and of course lots of garlic goodness. It's super easy to make and packs a flavor punch!


Garlic cloves 4 (roughly chopped)
Scallions 2 (roughly chopped)
Jalapeno 1 (stem removed and roughly chopped)
Salt 1 Pinch
Pepper 1 Pinch
Butter 4 Tablespoon (at room temperature)
Grated cheddar cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Bread loaf 1 (your favorite bread)


Getting Ready

Preheat the oven to 425 F.


In the bowl of a food processor, combine garlic, scallions, jalapeno, salt and pepper, and butter. 

Blend until smooth. 

Scrape down the sides with a spatula, then pulse the cheese in for no more than 5 seconds (get it mixed in, not blended).

Cut the bread through the middle, then slather evenly with the butter cheese mixture. 

Bake for 10-15 minutes until bubbly and golden, then slice the bread into pieces. 

If you desire crunchier bread, return the slices to the sheet tray and bake for another 5 minutes. 


Serve hot
