Garlic and Jalapeno Popper Rolls with Cheesy Bacon Filling

Crafting the Perfect Dough

The foundation of these rolls lies in a simple yet versatile dough that’s a joy to work with. Begin by whisking together warm milk, a tablespoon of sugar, and yeast, allowing it to develop a foamy texture. Incorporate eggs, whisking until smooth.

Transition to a stand mixer with a dough hook, combining the remaining sugar, flour, and salt in the bowl. Slowly introduce the milk mixture, and with the mixer running, add butter in small increments, ensuring a well-blended consistency. Knead the dough on medium-high speed until soft, adjusting with additional flour or water as needed.

Rising and Dough Preparation

Transfer the dough to a buttered dish, allowing it to rise until doubled in size (approximately 1 hour). After a hearty punch, roll out a 10×15-inch rectangle on a floured surface, about 1/4-inch thick.

Creating Jalapeno Popper Rolls

With the dough prepped, crafting these rolls becomes a breeze. Combine cream cheese, bacon, onion, jalapeno, chives, and minced garlic in a bowl. Spread this decadent mixture over the dough, topping it with shredded cheese. Roll the dough tightly, then cut into 12 equal rolls.

Place these rolls in a greased 9×13-inch pan, letting them rise again for about an hour. Bake in a preheated oven until achieving a golden-brown crust (25-30 minutes). Once out of the oven, let them cool for 5 minutes while you prepare the buttery topping.
