Cheddar Jalapeno Buns

Um wear gloves when prepping the jalapenos...the skin on my hands feels like it's on fire....buns for burgers!

1# 3 oz bread flour
8 oz milk, 95 degrees F
2 eggs
1/2 oz active dry yeast
3 T sugar
2 t. salt
3 T olive oil
5 jalapenos, seeded and diced
3/4 oz of cilantro
5 oz cheddar cheese large dice
egg wash as needed
1 jalapeno, sliced in thin rings for garnish

Combine milk, yeast, sugar, let set to get foamy.
Sprinkle salt with flour. Set aside.
In bottom of mixer, place eggs, oil, milk, yeast and sugar. Sprinkle flour mixture over top. Mix on med for 6 minutes. If your mixer is weak like mine, once dough comes together hand knead about 10-12 times, until dough is smooth and elastic.
Knead in cilantro, jalapenos, and cheese cubes! Until incorporated. This dough is a sticky one so add a sprinkle of flour...
Bench or ferment for about 60 minutes.
Punch down and bench for another 30 minutes.
Shape in to 4 oz rolls.
Proof for about 30 minutes.
Egg wash and garnish with jalapeno rings. Bake at 375 for 15-17 minutes!
Whoa! This is spicy!
