Jalapeno Burger Buns

Recipe by Bergy
READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
YIELD: 14 Buns


  • 3
    loaves frozen bread (3 lb) or 3 lbs fresh bread dough
  • 2
    tablespoons dry onion flakes
  • 4
    cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1
    fresh jalapeno peppers, finely chopped or (3 1/2 ounce) jar jalapenos, chopped
  • 1
    (2 ounce) jar pimientos, chopped
  • 20
    black olives, pitted and minced
  • 1 12
    cups cheddar cheese, grated


  • Allow the frozen dough to rise overnight in the fridge (if using fresh let it rise to double it's size).
  • Knead in your mixer for 5 minutes (by hand 10 minutes).
  • Add all the ingredients to the dough and knead for a further 10 minutes.
  • Cut into 14 equal pieces (more if you want smaller buns).
  • The dough is a bit moist from all the ingredients in it so you may want to use a little flour on your hands to form the buns- do not use too much flour or the buns will not rise as easily Place buns on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with veggie oil.
  • For best results bake the buns on a baking stone, covered with a piece of parchment and lightly sprayed with veggie oil Cover and place in a warm spot until the buns have doubled in size (I place them in the oven with the oven light on this gives a lovely warm, even heated, no breeze place where they can rise undisturbed).
  • This step may take 1-2 hours dependinbg on your dough.
  • Bake in 350F oven for apprx 20-25 minutes.
  • Place on a rack to cool.
  • They freeze well.
