Bacon & Cheese Savory Bread

Father’s Day week continues with Bacon & Cheese Savory Bread! It’s a soft, moist and delicious bread made with crispy bacon and sharp white cheddar cheese!


Originally, I wanted to make a “Dad” kind of muffins for breakfast, for my husband. I thought that savory muffins with bacon and cheese would be perfect to wake up to. Apparently, I was wrong!

“Muffins are just not manly!”

That’s what my hubby said to me. Haha, I didn’t ever realize that muffins were not manly. So I suggested savory bread and he was happy about that.

I got some nice applewood smoked bacon and baked it for a couple extra minutes to give it a nice crisp. I also got some extra sharp white cheddar for a more flavor.

    This looks amazing! Will try this on Friday to serve with my three bean soup. Nice to find a bread where you don’t have to fool around with the yeast and yet it looks like it rises nicely. Probably with just the benefit of the bread flour and buttermilk??

    • I love no yeast breads! Thank you for the sweet comment, Robin!
      Bread flour, buttermilk, baking powder and baking soda all help it rise while it’s baking :)

  31. Hello,
    I have a question : do I need to cook the bacon and then add it to the mixture ? Or can I put it in the mixture and it will cook with the bread ?
    Thanks !

    • Hi Emma!
      Yes, the bacon should be already cooked. It won’t have time to fully cooked inside if used raw and it won’t be crispy.
      Thank you :)
