Cauliflower Jalapeno Grilled Cheese Sandwich

This is a ooey gooey delicious grilled cheese sandwich with cauliflower and jalapeno peppers!

Today we’re going to make one heck of a grilled cheese sandwich by throwing cauliflower, jalapeno peppers and shredded cheddar cheese on top.

We’re gearing up for pepper season in the garden.  The pepper plants are exploding with a variation of new baby peppers and jalapenos that are already a few inches big.  This is the first year we’re growing jalapenos but it won’t be the last.  I am obsessed. I could just rip those babies off the plants, brush out the seeds and eat them raw.  I love the taste of a fresh jalapeno.    This recipe mixes  new and old as I also used up our last fresh cauliflower head.   It’s like Spring harvest meets Summer harvest meets grilled cheese in a loving match in cheesy heaven.

I suggest making this sandwich with  good quality pieces of bread.  I used some nice slices of Sourdough bread and it really takes a sandwich to the next level.  If you loved my Grilled Broccoli Cheese Sandwich, then you’ll double love this sandwich!
