Introduction: Slow Cooker Cheddar Bread With Roasted Poblanos

About: I'm a 49 year old Systems Architect living in the Midwestern United States. After travelling the world for 20 years as a consulting architect I became disabled, as a result, I am now embracing a Slow life. ...

We grow a lot of peppers in our household, and so we are always looking for new and fun ways to use them. This recipe combines that love with our quest to find new and novel ways of using our slow cooker. Made with boxed bread mix and roasted poblano peppers, this is a fun an easy way to bake a deliciously moist and savory bread that is ideal with chili, stews, and other cold weather comfort food.

Step 1: Ingredients and Gear

    Ingredients:

    • 1 14oz box of bread mix (including yeast packet)
    • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
    • 1 roasted and diced poblano pepper
    • 1 cup room temperature water

    Helpful Gear:

    Step 2: Mix It Up

    Line your slow cooker with parchment paper.

    Mix all ingredients in a bowl. The dough will become sticky and a little hard to mix, but it should be a little too sticky to knead. Once you have the peppers and cheese incorporated well, it is on to the next step.

    Step 3: Drop It In

    Pour the dough into the center of the parchment paper. Be sure the dough ball is centered in the slow cooker. Then set your slow cooker on high for 2 hours and cover with lid. Because all slow cookers are different, you might want to check the bread after the first hour and a half. Once the internal temperature is at 190 degrees Fahrenheit, you have about 30 minutes to go.

    Step 4: Cheddar Bread!

    Remove the bread and parchment paper from your slow cooker and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes. Slice and enjoy!

    Hi Scottbus,
    You use bread maker mix, is there yeast in the mix or does this recipe not use yeast?

    There is a yeast packet in the bread mix that is used in the recipe. I have also made this recipe using the master dough recipe from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day.

    I used a 6-quart for the Instructable, but I also have a 5-quart that works fine too.

    Oh wow, this looks tasty!

    And I think this the first time I've ever seen bread baked in a slow cooker. Very clever!

    Thanks! The same technique works with a variety of ingredients like peppers and such. Next we want to try a breakfast loaf with sausage or bacon and cheese.
