Ingredients1 packet of yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)1/4 cup of warm water4 tablespoons of melted butter1 egg2 1/2 cups of bread flour (I used King Arthur) plus more if needed1 cup of semolina flour5 jalapenos, stemmed and seeded, diced (should be about a cup)2 cups of Longhorn (or any other cheddar such as Colby) cheese, grated.1 cup of buttermilk1 teaspoon of sugar1 teaspoon of salt (can add more to taste)Instructions1. Mix together the yeast and water.2. Mix together the melted butter, egg and buttermilk and add to yeast and water.3. Add the salt, sugar and bread flour to the liquids and mix well. Then add the semolina flour to the dough and mix well. If the dough is too wet, gradually add more bread flour 1/4 cup at a time.4. Place dough on a floured surface and knead for five to ten minutes until dough is smooth.5. Form dough into a ball and place into a bowl greased with butter.6. Cover the bowl, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size—about an hour.7. Turn out dough on a floured surface, and slowly knead into the dough the jalapenos and cheese, a little bit at a time.8. When cheese and jalapenos are incorporated into the dough, place dough into a greased bread loaf pan (8-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 2-3/4). You can also sprinkle semolina in the bread pan for additional friction.9. Cover the pan and let dough rise until doubled in size (it should be at the top or a bit over the top of the pan)—about an hour.10. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.11. Bake bread for 40-45 minutes on a center rack (when you thump the top and it sounds hollow, the bread is done).12. Let cool for ten minutes, and then slide it out of the pan, slice and enjoy!NotesLoved it. I used both buttermilk and 2% milk. I liked the 2% milk the best. Made some open face brisket sammies. The best.Number of Servings: Time to Prepare:
