Cheddar and Bacon Loaf in the Bread Machine
There are plenty of recipes to make cheddar and bacon loaf in the bread machine, but most involve yeast. Over the last year with yeast at times being difficult to find I played around with our no yeast garlic bread recipe and this cheese and bacon loaf was the result.
We love the artisan-style topping of crispy bacon and cheddar that melts into a crust in the final stages of cooking. It really doesn’t look like you’ve made it in your bread machine at all!
No Yeast Bread with Bacon and Cheese
So what’s the secret to no yeast bread in the bread maker?
It’s using baking soda in the mix to help the bread rise.
We cook on the quick bread setting (also called rapid settings) on our machine. If you don’t have these settings then you could use the pizza dough setting to knead the bread then take it out and allow a final rise for around 20 minutes before cooking as you would Soda Bread or other no yeats bread sprinkling the cheese and bacon on the top around 10 minutes before it finishes.
Top Tip for Making this Cheese and Bacon Loaf
We love using bacon in recipes but find that cooking the bacon when we need it and chilling adds a lot of time to the preparation for recipes.
To save that time I cook a batch of bacon, let it cool down and crush it into small pieces that can then be added to recipes when we need them. It’s how I make our simple Hashbrown and Bacon Muffins for school mornings in a hurry.
Don’t forget that it’s important that you place the ingredients in the order listed below UNLESS your bread maker recommends otherwise in the instructions!
