We loved this bread. We tried it warm, and cold. We like it much better cold.We tried it for both dinner, and breakfast. (Warm for D, and cold for B) It would make a great egg sandwich for breakfast. I am gona have to come up with a healthier version tho. I used regular bacon, but next time I am using the lower fat, and maybe lower fat cheese. I recommend it as a rare treat. We had it with Potato soup for dinner, and with an orange for breakfast. Gotta love it!!
I used bread flour instead of the all-purpose flour, and added a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper. I mixed the bread ingredients in the ABM and removed the dough from the pan before the first rise ~ I divided the batter-like dough into eight (8) individual 3.7" x 2.4" mini loaves, topped with the remaining cheese, covered with cling film and let rise til doubled ~ about 50 minutes. I baked the mini loaves at 350F for 20 minutes. Although the loaves look a little dark on the outside, the inside crumb is moist and tender, and very flavorful. :) Tagged for CHIVES, Herb/Spice for May 2010, in the French Forum!
