Serves: 8
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 4 ounces or 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2¼ tsp yeast
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (4 ounce) can green chilies, drained or ¼ cup chopped pickled jalapeno slices
  1. Preheat your oven to 195 degrees
  2. Generously grease a large loaf pan (9x5)

  5. Add warm milk mixture and eggs to flour mixture in your large mixing bowl, beat for 3 minutes on medium speed with your mixer. You can do this step by hand if you prefer, use a whisk and beat for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Stir in remaining cup of flour and green chilies or Jalapenos
  7. Turn oven off, bowl with dough in it and place in oven for 20-25 minutes or until doubled in size. (this is the quick rise method, if you prefer you can just cover the bowl and leave it on your counter for 40-60 minutes.
  8. Once doubled in size, stir the dough back down to a batter to release all the air bubbles. Pour into the generously greased bread pan. Cover again and let rise until doubled in size, about 20-35 minutes.
