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!
