Ham'n'cheese Egg Loaf

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. I made this and was really lookin forward to a new breakfast item to make but I was a little disappointed. It was ok, but it just seemed like the flavor was a little bland. Next time I think I will add more bacon and maybe some spices. The directions call for adding salt but there was no salt listed in the ingredients.


<p>I live in beautiful western Manitoba, Canada. I'm a wife and stay-at-home mom with 2 daughters, Peanut (who turned 7 at the end of January) and Fidget (who will turn 5 in the middle of June) and a husband whom I call The Bushman, who's motto, lucky for me, is I'll try anything once! I'm a Mennonite by heritage as well as faith. I'm a born again Christian and we belong to a small Evangelical Mennonite country church where The Bushman and I are fairly involved. The church is made up largely of family groups -- most are related somehow. That's actually a Mennonite pastime, finding out how everyone's related to each other. If we're not directly related, we'll find a connection somehow -- your third cousin's wife's brother is for SURE my mother's father's sister-in-law's nephew!! See, isn't it amazing how small this world really is?! For fun, I enjoy photography -- my favourite subjects are sunsets, cloud formations, my girls, and nature close-ups -- reading, (John Grisham, Frederick Forsythe, Robert Ludlum, and Clive Cussler are my favourite authors), playing piano, and going for nice long walks, either first thing in the morning or towards sunset. I've even learned to enjoy it in the dead of winter, when I have no choice but to walk in semi-darkness. For those of you who've never experienced a Manitoba winter (lucky you!), 'the dead of winter' includes pretty much all of December, January, and February!! And up here, our shortest days of the year have only 7 hours of daylight, so if it's cloudy, well, it feels like no daylight at all! It's my favourite time to plan my day, pray, and daydream about what might happen if I'd ever actually buy a lottery ticket and win!! I love cooking -- baking not so much (mostly because it's not essential to survival and if there's baking in the house, that's all we eat!!) -- and reading recipe books is a favourite pastime of mine. I love the Company's Coming series of cookbooks, but my favourite is Taste of Home magazine. Since buying a premium membership here though, I've decided to let my subscription run out. I'll miss it, but I've decided there's really no need for it, since all the best recipes in the world eventually end up here!!</p>
