  • 1 large Italian bread loaf
  • 5 green onions finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup butter divided
  • 2 cups shredded pepper-jack cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded monterey jack or mozzarella cheese
  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup real mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pickled jalapenos use more or less to your taste
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and 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.
  • Meanwhile, melt remaining 2 Tbsp of butter in a skillet. Add green onions and garlic. Saute for 1-2 minutes over medium high heat then remove from the stove.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix sauteed garlic and onions with pepper jack, monterey jack, bacon, mayonnaise, jalapenos, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Divide the mixture between the two toasted bread halves, spreading from edge to edge.
  • Return to the oven. Broil for 5 minutes or until the cheesy is golden and bubbly.
  • Slice into desired size pieces and serve immediately.
