THE BREAD; Jalepeño-Style


1 loaf jalepeño sourdough, Split Lengthwise 

2 sticks Regular (salted) Butter, Softened


1. Preheat oven to 350°

2. Spread one stick of softened butter on each half of the loaf

3. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until the butter is melted and is starting to soak into the bread.

4. Switch the broiler to high and broil the bread for 3 to 5 minutes.  Do not walk away!  You have about 1 minute before things start getting serious, so careful not to let it burn!

5. When the butter has started to brown and blacken, remove it. Don't under-broil it either though; the flavor really kicks in when the butter's color changes.

6. Slice into desirable chunks or strips and serve immediately.
