Ham'n'cheese Egg Loaf

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Swan Valley Tammi

An all-in-one brunch bread; perfect for a summer brunch with a light fruit salad. The original recipe calls for 1/4 tsp. salt, but I omit it because often the bacon or ham add enough. We serve these with Cheez Whiz.

This is the most unusual but the best bread I have had in a long time.This will be a staple in my kitchen. I did not use the bacon as I didn't have any so added a bit more ham. Also used chedder cheese and colby cheese as that is what I had on hand. I am sure that whatever cheese you use it would be wonderful. This sure hit the spot and a cold and windy day. Great use of left over ham. This loaf of bread can't be beat.
