Total time
A fluffy, gooey, cheesy pretzel bread filled with jalapenos and pepper jack cheese.
Serves: 18 slices
  • 1 and ½ cups warm water (lukewarm, no need to take temperature)
  • 1 packet active yeast (2 and ¼ teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 - 4 cups bread flour (I used 3 cups)
  • ½ cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup jalapenos, pickled, drained, diced
  • ¼ cup egg substitute or 1 large egg
  • course sea salt for sprinkling (I used Kosher Salt)
  1. Preheat oven to 425F Degrees
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat; set a aside.
  3. In a large bowl add yeast and water; stir with wooden spoon. After 1 minutes, add salt and sugar; mix until combined. Add bread flour one cup at a time, mixing in between each cup. Add enough flour to where the dough pulls a way from the sides of the bowl. Knead dough about 5 -10 times until soft and there is no more flour remaining in the bowl.
  4. Sprinkle flour onto working surface. Add the dough to surface and with a rolling pin, roll out dough into a rectangular shape, about 15 x 9".
  5. Add cheese and jalapeno to the center of the dough. Starting at 1 long side, roll dough into log, pinching gently to keep it rolled up. With seam side down, cut dough crosswise with thin sharp knife or dough cutter into 18 equal slices (each about ½ to ¾ inch wide).
  6. Place the dough, cut side up onto prepare baking sheet. Place the egg in a bowl and scramble with a fork, brush each piece of dough with the egg and sprinkle with salt.
  7. Bake in oven for 5 minutes; then turn the broiler on and bake for 5 more minutes until lightly golden.
  8. Slightly adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction
