Step 1: Ingredients
1 Cup water
2 Tablespoons butter (softened)
2/3 Cup cooked bacon (with fat, that was 8 strips of thick cut bacon for me)
2 1/2 Cups white bread flour
1/2 Cup whole wheat flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast (or 1 1/2 teaspoons fast rise)
measuring spoons, pot holders, bread machine, measuring cups, sifter, bread knife or and electric knife works really well.
Step 2: Bacon
Step 3: Adding the ingredients to the bread pan.
Add the water, bacon, and butter to the bread pan.
Next sift flours together, and add to the bread pan, make three indentions with your thumb or spoon. In one of the corner dents put salt, pepper, basil, and garlic powder. In the other corner goes the sugar. In the middle indention put your yeast.
