DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, combine 2/3 cup flour, undissolved yeast, and salt.
  • Gradually add water and olive oil to flour mixture.
  • Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixture, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  • Roll dough out to 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Sprinkle evenly with Chile and Cheddar Filling (see below) to within 1/2 inch of edges; pat down lightly.
  • Beginning at long end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll. Pinch seam and ends to seal.
  • Taper ends by gently rolling back and forth to make 16-inch long roll.
  • Place, seam side-down, on greased baking sheet.
  • Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Brush loaf with Egg Glaze.
  • With sharp knife, cut three 4-inch diagonal slits at the center of loaf, deep enough to expose filling. Bake at 400F for 18-20 minutes or until crust is golden. Cool 5 minutes before removing from sheet.
  • Serve warm.
  • Chile and Cheddar Filling:
  • In a bowl, combine cheese, chiles, olives and green onions. Stir until well blended.
  • Egg Glaze:
  • In a small bowl, combine egg white and water. Stir to blend.
