Pepper Jack Cheese Knots

I made these as a side for my husbands Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak B Day dinner. We love pepper jack!

2 tsp yeast
2/3 cup warm water(110-115Âș)
2 TB olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

1 TB melted butter
sea salt to taste

In a bowl combine yeast, water , olive oil and salt. Allow to sit for 5 minutes until yeast is foamy.

Add in sea salt and slowly mix in flour 1/3 cup at a time until the dough begins to pull from sides(you may or may not need all the flour). Knead until smooth and elastic.

Then add cheese and knead until combined.

Place in a greased bowl , cover and place in a warm , draft free location and allow to rise until doubled(an hour or so)

Divide into 12 sections.

Roll each section into a thin rope and tie in a knot.

Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover with a towel and allow to rise in a warm location for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden...Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt immediately.
