Tracey's Culinary Adventures is one of my top influencers. Seriously, she makes some really good food.
My mouth watered at the sound of Jalapeño Cheddar Rolls and I knew that if Tracey was posting them - they were going to be good. Very good.
Then my friend Elizabeth made them too, and declared that indeed they were mouth-watering - just as I suspected.
Clearly I needed to make these rolls. After all, I already had the ingredients. And hamburgers. It was kismet.
The dough goes together easily, I didn't even need the extra flour in the recipe. And, in my excitement, I accidentally doubled the jalapeño. That too was good - very good.
The buns smell wonderful when they are baking up, are a snap to put together and make the best burger rolls ever. Make them!
