I made this up and it turned out well.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

I followed another reviewer's tip & substituted unsalted butter for the bacon grease, & also used almost half a cup of Hormel's Real Bacon Pieces instead of the 3 slices of bacon! Also let the once-kneaded dough rise again in the loaf pan before baking it! Wonderfully delicious bread that was served along with the pork & bean soup I'd made! Thanks for this great bread recipe keeper! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
