This is excellent. I omitted the butter and used leftover bacon that I chopped up. I'm sure it was more than 3 T. lol. Hubby was thrilled. Used to make ham sandwiches for his lunch this week. Thanks! This is a good one. :)
Astounding bread............it kept on rising and was an enormous loaf when it finished baking! I added fried fresh bacon bits and left out the butter too............the bread was light, high and very tasty! It was so easy to make in the bread maker/machine. Great bread, thanks Parsley!FT:-)
A keeper, Parsley! Well worth making. I braided the finished dough; this made a HUGE beautiful loaf. Slightly increased the cheese and used 6 slices of crumbled real bacon, found I needed a tablespoon or so more water, used oil instead of butter. Baked at 350 for 35 minutes. I always bake ABM dough in the oven, don't like the texture of bread baked in the machine. I might make 2 smaller loaves next time, or 1/2 dozen rolls and a loaf, although the loaf was quite impressive! Thanks for sharing . . . Janet
One word - WOW!! This bread is simply amazing. Simple to make and absolutely delicious!! You can really taste the cheese and bacon in every bite. I told DH I want a second bread machine so we can have one loaf going while we're eating another one! Thanks Parsley!!
*A nice savory bread* understates this delicious bread. I made it as written except that I used real crisped bacon & more of it than the recipe stated. The aroma called to us & we started eating it slathered w/butter while still hot from the ABM. Tomorrow morning it will be toasted & served w/an egg on top & hash on the side. DH can hardly wait. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
I have one complaint: This loaf didn't last very long. :oD Everyone loved it & took big fat slices of it until it was gone. I'd made enough for a 2lb loaf in the bread machine & wound up cutting off a big glob from the top at the end of the rise cycle which I baked in the oven. Worked out great!
This is such a wonderful flavored bread. So easy to put together too. I didn't change a thing about the recipe except for the cooking technique. I don't like the way my bread machine makes bread, but I love the dough cycle. So after the dough cycle, I turned it out on a floured surface and shaped it into a oval loaf and covered it with a towel and let it sit for about 45 mintues. Then popped it in the oven at 375 for 30 minutes and it turned out beautiful. And the flavor and texture were perfect with our soup and salad dinner. Thanks Pars.....
