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!
