Jalapeno Popper Rolls

My current favorite recipe is THIS.

In the mood for something carb loaded, savory and cheesy. THIS is your recipe. I’m serving it tonight with the spicy tomato soup that I made while in Montana. Here’s to my current favorite recipe! Yum.

Jalapeno Popper Rolls

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

1/2 cup warm water 

2 1/2 tsp. instant yeast 

1 cup scalded milk 

1 cube soft butter (or 1/2 cup)

1 egg 

Pinch of salt 

4-5 cups all purpose flour     

In a small sauce pan, prepare your milk. Place 1 1/4 cup milk, and turn on to medium heat. Let the milk begin to simmer, and bring to a boil. Remove the milk from the heat and set aside to cool. The milk will measure close to 1 cup when done.     

Meanwhile, proof the yeast in the warm water. Once the yeast has bubbled, add the butter, 1/2 cup sugar and eggs. Then add the cooled milk, and 3-4 cups of flour. Turn on your mixer, and begin to bring the dough together. Add a bit more of flour, until the dough begins to come off the side of the bowl while mixing. Continue mixing for 3-4 minutes on medium speed. Remove the dough and place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.

3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 fresh jalapeno sliced thin, seeds removed

3 green onions, sliced

4 oz. canned jalapenos diced

Bacon Jam

Whipped cream cheese

Divide the dough in to 2 rounds. Roll out one section at a time on a lightly floured surface, 1/2″ thick. into a big rectangle. Butter the dough slightly. Then spread 2 oz. of the canned jalapenos onto the rolled and buttered dough.

Then sprinkle 1/2 the diced onions on top. Then sprinkle 1 1/2 cups grated cheese on the dough. Tightly roll longest part upwards, like a cinnamon roll.

Cut the rolled cheesy dough into circles and place into a buttered baking dish. Repeat until both batches of rolls are assembled cut and placed into 9×13 baking dishes. Place 12 rolls in each buttered dish. This recipe makes approx. 24 rolls.

Place a little Bacon Jam on top of each roll, about 1 tsp. then sprinkle each roll with the remaining green onions, and the fresh sliced jalapeno. Let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 33-35 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before topping with some whipped cream cheese.

Happy roll making!
