This one goes out to Dave DeRoma. Bacon, Jalapeno, and Cheddar Bread.
3 cups flour
1 ½ tablespoons kosher salt
1 ½ teaspoons yeast
1 cup + 2-5 tablespoons water
½ cup crispy cooked bacon diced
½ cup chopped jalapeno
½ cup cubed cheddar cheese
Mix together flour, salt, and yeast in stand mixer. Add water slowly reserving 2 tablespoons. If dough ball does not form after a few minutes add the water a teaspoon at a time until it forms a bowl that does not stick to the sides. Add bacon, jalapeno, and cheese.
Place dough in a tightly covered bowl overnight.
In the morning preheat oven to 450 degrees with the pot in the oven so it heats up. Plop dough into pan. Cover and cook for approx. 30 minutes. Remove lid and cook for about 15 minutes more.
