  • 1 loaf Italian bread
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 oz block cream cheese (1/2 block), softened to room temp
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup pickled jalapeño slices, divided use
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick aluminum foil. Cut the bread lengthwise and place both parts face up on the sheet. Brush both pieces with melted butter.
  • Sprinkle with garlic powder. Set aside.
  • Divide the jalapeños. Save a few slices to place on top of the bread (about 1/4 cup). Chop the rest.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, and chopped jalapeños.
  • Spread the jalapeño dip mixture on the bread, dividing equally between the two pieces of bread.
  • Top bread with mozzarella cheese.
  • Arrange the reserved jalapeño slices over the cheese.
  • Place bread in the oven for about 12 minutes, until cheese is melty. Remove from the oven and place on a cutting board. Let cool for few minutes.
  • Slice and serve.
