Jalapeno Cheddar Bread is a homemade bread recipe packed full of bacon, cheddar cheese, green onions and jalapeños. It is the perfect amount of flavor with just enough spice. Yum!

Fresh, warm bread right out of the oven is just the best, isn’t it? I am crazy about quite a few bread recipes like Eggnog Bread, Pumpkin Bread and Cranberry Lemon Zucchini Bread. They are all so delicious.

Usually if you put cheese OR jalapenos in anything I am all in. Add them both? I’m in love! After that we threw in some bacon just for good measure. This recipe is not lacking in flavor.

How To Make Jalapeno Cheddar Bread

First, start by whisking together your flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. In a seperate bowl, beat your cream cheese with a mixer. You’ll definitely want to make sure your cheese has softened to room temperature before this step.

Then, fold in the shredded cheese, jalapeños, green onion and bacon. Add in your flour mix, your eggs and your butter and milk. Stir until it’s all combined. Pour into your loaf pan and bake!

This truly is a super easy bread to make. No kneading, takes under an hour and doesn’t require anything fancy. Just a couple bowls, a few ingredients and a loaf pan.

I like serving this at when we have football party gatherings with our spread of dips. Top this with cream cheese, butter or totally plain. It’s great either way!

  1. I actually haven’t made this yet, but intend to. What main course cuisine could you serve this with?

    I made three loaves on my first try. Gave one to 2 sons and kept one. Now it is my most requested bread. That and the cinnamon rolls. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

    LOVE this RECIPE! Hubby TOO!  I did not have green onion and since we like spicy..I added Ortega Green Chilis.. YUM!!! I added less bacon..4 slices of Kirkland easy microwave slices.. Milk was substituted with Almond Vanilla UNSWEETENED milk… Also cheeses used were 2C Kirkland shredded Parmesan and 1/3C  Dublinger (Irish) …. Hopefully helped in cutting calories…  Will be making this over and over again.. Great for soup addition with slices of avocado…  Next time will try substituting Neat Egg since only one required (likely for binding) and reduced fat cream cheese too…Oh and on top I generously sprinkled (Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds) again Costco brand ( LOVE COSTCO)  …  Totally AWESOME results… Thank you for this great flavor bread loaf
