"Excellent recipe, great flavor. I used cubes of sharp cheddar and fresh jalapeno and baked in oven. Definitely worth trying."
"The most fantastic bread I have ever made. My dh ate the whole loaf in one sitting and forbade me from ever making it again! I took that as the highest compliment to Gerald. I am making more right now, but will shape it into buns to put pulled pork on. Yum, yum. This bread is light and airy with just the right zing. Well done!"
"This bread is awesome! I made it to serve with chili and it really hit the spot. I was a little nervous about the jalapenos plus the brine but it wasn't too spicy. I also used extra sharp cheddar and I thought it could've stood a little more cheese. DH ate 4 slices! What better testimonial is there?"
"I doubled the recipe for two loaves and didn't use a bread machine. I cooked it for 25-30 minutes at 350. I think it needs a little more cheese or maybe not as finely grated cheese as I used. The brine from the jalepenos makes it have a sourdough bread type of taste. It isn't hot but has just a bit of a kick. I LOVED it! The only change I will do is more cheese next time"
"I made this for lunch today and it was a delicious bread. Every crumb was eaten. The bread had a good texture and the cheese and jalapenos were very well blended within the bread.<br/><br/>I used more than 1 cup of finely shredded cheddar cheese. As my measuring cup didn't have a mark for 7/8 cup, I used 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of water. I used sliced jalapenos and didn't dice them.<br/><br/>My machine is a Hamilton Beach 29881 2 pound capacity bread maker. I set it to basic; light crust and 1 1/2 pound settings.<br/><br/>I will certainly be making this bread later."
"Excellent bread!! Makes phenomenal grilled cheese sandwiches!"
"really, really, really good. flavorful and craveable. my crust was a tad too crunchy, but will be easily adjustable on my bread machine. my breads in the machine are usually hit and miss. this was a hit!"
"Great recipe!! Really great crust, moist and great for slicing thin! I used pickled jalepenos because that is all that I had and it tasted awesome!"
"I used seeded fresh cayenne for the canned jalapenos and water for the brine since that is what I had on hand. Came out great. I was concerned that the peppers would get shred up by the ABM since my machine liquefies raisins, but this didn't happen. Knowing this, next time I'll cut the peppers smaller. This can slice nice and thin, if desired."
"Delicious. Has a great zip to it! Used half whole wheat flour."
"We enjoyed this a lot. We served this with some soup. We will make again, but next time add even more jalapenos. I may also increase the brine to water ratio. Overall a great bread. Thanks."
"Tastes yummy! I have a large jar of jalapenos so I didn't want to use too much liquid. I reduced the 1/4 cup brine to 2 tbsp which worked great."
"This bread was just what I was looking for. I used half jarred and half fresh jalapenos just because I wanted to use the fresh ones before they went bad. I used the bread machine to mix them cut the dough in half and made to loves in the oven. Perfect!"
"I made this for my son to take with chili to a Superbowl party. He reports that everyone really liked it and it is definitely a "do it again" recipe. I used diced, fat-reduced old cheddar and pickled hot banana pepper rings and brine. I did not dice the pepper rings. Since there were a bunch of young men at the party and I have a B&D bread machine that makes up to a 3 pound loaf, I decided to double the recipe. I crossed my fingers and it turned out just fine."
"This bread came out great! Just the right amount of spicy. I just added a tbs of wheat gluten to make sure it had the right consistency. Great recipe, thanks!!"
"Delicious! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Hehehehe! Now I've posted a photo for this wonderful bread. Wow! Where does the time go, I totally forgot my inspiration for this bread. Just came across it again with a Yahoo search. Anyway, I've been making my modified version for years now (see my other review). We still love it!"
"I made this really thinking I would love it, but it seemed to be missing more jalapeno flavor. I might try it again using more jalapeno and baking in the oven instead of the bread machine."
"However, I doubled the recipe and did it in a food processor. I also modified the recipe a bit, by adding a few more ingredients: 1 Tbsp. olive oil 1 tsp. minced garlic 1 tsp onion powder Plus I didn't incorporate any of the shredded cheese, until after it rose and I hand-kneaded it in. I didn't double the peppers in the recipe and I also hand kneaded half of my minced peppers. My family was crazy about the loaves. They were beautiful and delicious. I wish I could submit a picture."
