    Pink_Diamond's Note:

    As some of my Zaar friends have probably noticed, I have been trying loads of different bread recipes and jotting down what I liked and disliked about them. I then researched what every item specifically does as an end result. This is what I have come up with. Just enough sugar to brown it properly, enough eggs to add richness to the bread and make the crust shinny and tender, just enough salt to help control yeast development, and prevent the bread from over rising and, of course my favorite ingredient, bacon drippings, instead of oil, for added flavor. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as i do. I think it was worth the effort and research.

      I tried this recipe because of the bacon grease. I found the recipe odd because of that and having two eggs. I used my stand mixer it is a kitchen aid 600 and I thought it was going to burn up my mixer. I knead bread often with the KA and this dough was different. I sprinkled corn meal on the baking sheet before baking and added sesame seeds. My DH and I both liked this recipe a lot. I will be making it again and am surprised I am the first to review.
