Seriously…..Bacon Bread – Oh Yea! February 20, 2012

Ok, I caved and made some bacon bread for my husband and no, I didn’t use turkey bacon but the real thing for him!  One would have thought the man was in heaven.  He could smell the bread when he came home from work on night and could hardly contain himself waiting for it to bake.  Now, you need to know that my husband is not the bread person that I am, he actually could care less about most carbs except for doughnuts and now bacon bread!  Again, I made the mistake of not having my camera out so I could take picture because before I knew it the bread was gone – no not by just him but everyone who happen to come through the door that day.

So here is my warning to you, if you, your family or your husband likes bacon….look out this bread will not last!  Plus, it makes sandwiches that are out of this world!!!!  BLT’s – oh yummmmmmmm        Enjoy!   Comments/questions  ramona@lowfatdivablog.com


Recipe For Bacon Bread

1 cup warm water

3 cups white bread flour

2 Tlb. sugar

1 1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 tsp. dried sweet basil

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/3 cup cooked bacon that has been crumbled

2 1/2 tsp. dry yeast


Once you make this bread you will soon find it to be your families favorite!  Follow your bread machine directions for the order of ingredients (most follow the list exactly as it is).  You can mix a bit of the bacon juices in with the crumbled bacon before you put it in the bread machine, be careful not to get to carried away or you will be adding a great deal of fat to your bread!  I added just a small amount to keep the crumbled bacon moist and you will notice I didn’t add any of the normal butter to the recipe.  Set the machine for dough and when it has completed, turn the dough onto a lightly floured counter.  Knead the dough for about 2 minutes and then form the dough into a loaf.  Place in a pan that has been sprayed with olive oil Pam.  Cover and let rise until double in a warm place.   Bake 350 degree oven for about 30-35 min. or until brown on top and lightly brown on the bottom.     Warning – this bread can become addicting 🙂
