A friend made some grilled cheeseburger sandwiches and I decided to put my own little spicy spin on it. I use potato bread and Cajun seasoned bacon. YUM!

A burger with bacon, pepper jack, and jalapenos... full of flavor is an understatement. The burger patty itself is seasoned perfectly and jam-packed with flavor and bacon. Stuffing the burger inside a pepper jack and jalapeno grilled cheese makes this the ultimate burger. We used Texas Toast for the grilled cheese and it made this similar to a patty melt. A wonderful burger during grilling season.
