SERVES: 8-10
YIELD: 1 loaf


  • 1
    tablespoon baking powder
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 3
    tablespoons sugar
  • 1 14
    cups shredded cheese (I used Cheddar, but a mixture with Monterey Jack and Colby included would be great)
  • 12
    ounces beer
  • 4
    slices bacon, cooked and chopped (1/4 c real bacon bits)
  • 2
    tablespoons butter, melted


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Prepare bread pan by greasing with butter; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with a whisk. Make a well in the center; add bacon, about 3/4 of cheese and beer into the well.
  • Stir mixture with a spoon until combined.
  • Pour mixture into prepared bread pan; add remaining cheese and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of butter.
  • Bake for 30 minutes; remove from oven and drizzle remaining butter over the top.
  • Bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until browned on top and loaf thumps when you tap the top.
  • Remove to a wire rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool on wire rack. You can brush with more butter if you choose.
