TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6-1/2 to 7-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons water


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm milk. Add the eggs, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add cheese and jalapeno. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 12 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 3-in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Combine egg and water; brush over rolls. Bake at 375° for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
