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.

Bacon lovers are guaranteed to be in food heaven! The bread didn’t last two full days between the little man and the big man!

    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 :)

    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 :)
