This is a wonderful recipe. I increased the bacon to 1 c(chopped fine), added 1/2 c. shredded cheddar and 1/2 c sour cream. I put on the dough cycle and made rolls out of them (12), brushing with egg and seseme seeds. Last night we had them for hamburgers. Just the right size and Ohhh, so yummy. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing!
This bread is AWESOME! I did make a rather unhealthy substitution by using some of the bacon drippings instead of the butter to enhance the flavor, and I used regular chopped onions, but the bread is terrific. I have people asking me for the recipe...
I used the suggestion of using the bacon grease instead of butter and I added extra bacon and about a half or more cup of cheese.. it was so great, it will be a favorite of ours for awhile!
We made this as a basic beer bread with no bacon or onion. This made a big and very tasty loaf of bread. Will make again. Thank you for sharing.
Mde this yesterday on my breadmachine's dough cycle. I punched back the dough, shaped it and put in a loaf pan to rise once more and baked it off in the oven at 350F for about 40 minutes, my instant read thermometre gave a 205 F reading when the loaf was done. I used bacon fat but no bacon and used chopped green onion tops that I had in my freezer (onions need no blanching to be frozen!). This almost has a turkey dressing like flavour...I used a dark stout beer (think Guiness type of beer)...the flavour is awesome. This could easily be made by hand and baked in two loaves rather than the HUGE delicious loaf I made.
This bread is incredible! Have made it twice now. First time with regular white onion and second time with the green onion called for in the recipe. Both times I substituted bacon grease for the butter. We love this bread. It is soft and tender, but does not tear when you cut it. Thanks to the poster.
Nice, smoky/bacon tasting bread. Had it with eggs and hashbrowns for a tasty breakfast.
This bread was Great!! I too added bacon drippings,but followed recipe as stated. Will make again.
