  • 1 large Italian loaf
  • 5 finely chopped green onions
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 stick [1/2 cup] butter divided
  • 2 cups shredded pepper-jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded monterey jack or mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup real mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pickled jalapenos [more or less to your taste]
  • 6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled [to equal 2/3 cup]
  • 1/4 tsp each salt & black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to broil. Cut the Italian loaf in half and place side by side on a baking sheet. Spread each half with 3 Tbsp of butter and place into the oven to lightly toast. This will only take minutes, so, watch the bread closely.
  • While the bread is toasting, melt the remaining 2 Tbsp of butter in a skillet. Add the chopped green onions and minced garlic. Saute for 1-2 minutes over medium high heat then remove from the stove.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix the sauteed garlic and onions with the remaining ingredients.
  • Divide the mixture between the two toasted bread halves, and spread from edge to edge.
  • Return to the oven. Broil for 5 minutes or until the cheesy is golden and bubbly.
  • Slice and serve immediately.
