This month the Bread Bakers are baking up Stuffed Bread! I almost forgot to look at the theme for this month so I was running a little bit behind. I needed something that was easy to make and that could double as dinner. This was hard to do! I searched for stuffed breads on Google and on Pinterest. I couldn’t find one that I liked so I took a bread I knew I could stuff and put in my own filling! I started with a crunchy and salty pretzel roll. They are one of my absolute favorite rolls and I paired them with something I love to have stuffed in my soft pretzels…jalapenos and cheddar! Making these pretzel rolls was fairly easy. They only require one rising so they take around 2 hours total, including rising time, instead of 3 or 4 hours which is usually the time it takes for bread to rise. Once the bread had risen and I cut it into 18 pieces, I flattened each piece in order to stuff it. I placed chopped jalapenos and shredded cheddar cheese in the middle of the dough ball. Then I pinched the edges together, then wrapped the pinch parts together and pinched them again at the bottom. You can seal these however you see fit but I found that this worked well and didn’t let any of the cheese fall out.
The pretzel rolls are boiled and then baked. They turn a golden brown on the outside. These rolls have a crunchy exterior and a soft interior filled with the cheese and spicy jalapenos. They are delicious and perfect as an appetizer, a snack, or even for a quick dinner.

- Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Place the dough in the bowl and turn once, coating with oil. Cover with a dish towel and allow to rise for 1½ hours or until doubled.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray.
- Turn the dough onto a cutting board and cut into 18 equal pieces. Gently press each piece flat.
- Place a few jalapenos and a sprinkle of cheese in the middle of each dough. Pinch the edges together and pull into a ball shape.
- In a large pot bring water and baking soda to a boil. Add the dough balls 5 at a time, boiling for 1 minute.
- Remove from the pot and place on prepared baking sheets.
- Carefully slice a small x shape on top of each roll, making sure not to cut to deep.
