In this instructable I will show you how to make this delicious bacon cheddar bread that goes perfect with any dinner. I also love using it to make next level grilled cheese sandwiches.

Ingredients you will need:

3 c warm water

2 tsp instant yeast

2 tsp salt

2 tsp sugar

1 pack of bacon

2 c shredded cheese

6 c all-purpose flour

1/8 tsp black pepper

Step 1: Prep Your Yeast

In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups of warm water, 2 teaspoons of yeast, 2 teaspoons of salt and 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Stir ingredients and set aside for several minutes.

<p>Great recipe........I would use bacon-pepper jack or bacon -extra sharp cheddar LOL but that's just my palate talking^_^ Also I would add sugar to yeast then give it ten minutes or so to get growing then dump salt on their parade </p>
<p>Well, I've been making different types of bread for years, and I always wanted one of those ovens that had a proofing setting. Finally got one, and guess what -- it's just the oven light! EVERY oven with a light has proofing capabilities! Brings the temp up to 80 - 85 degrees -- ideal for proofing!</p>
<p>I've got a wood burning fire with stove top. So, in the winter, I've got plenty of heat to proof my bread. I've also got a (bottled) gas stove with an electric light for summer cooking. Never thought to use the light for proofing. Must give it a try. Thanks for the tip.</p>
Great to know!
<p>going to have to try this - just as soon as I can get some decent bacon and cheddar (when MOH gets back from his UK trip). Are you sure it will actually last a couple of days? In my home I very much doubt it. LOL</p>
<p>I guarantee it will last you a couple of dinners and at least two grilled cheeses...now after that, no guarantees :). You definitely have to save some to make a grilled cheese though. </p>
<p>what size are the pans?</p>
<p>I don't have a bread maker or a slow cooker. I love the old fashioned get your hands in it kind of cooking, the kind where you can smell it cooking, smell the yeast bread rising and knead it, chop the veggies, all hands on like grand mom used to do. Comfort food isn't always in the eating, it's a lot about the making. What's the rush? Take your time and enjoy the cooking experience.</p>
<p>I love the way you think...I rely on my slow cooker more than I care to admit. </p>
I love that you said not to use the pre-shredded cheese. We must do our own, like Trump says &quot;Make America Grate (great) again!&quot; HA!
<p>If I could get everyone to stop using the pre-shredded stuff in every recipe, I would :).</p>
I find it so relaxing to cook the old fashioned way. I'm retired and have all the time in the world. Even when I was working, I never cooked fast. I have a microwave, but it's only for heating stuff up or cooking the occasional frozen meatless patties. I'm vegetarian, and my sweetie isn't, so I slow cook everything for him. He loves cheese, and bacon, and will love this bread. I'm going to surprise him with it this week:)
<p>It does not happen often but my mouth watered after watching the video :) Hoping later in the spring to try this :)</p><p>Thanks, voted for you :)</p>
<p>Thank you! Let me know what you think of it when you do try it.</p>
<p>Next time you stay in a hotel take the free shower cap they give you. They are ideal for covering your dough while it proves. </p>
<p>That's the best idea I've ever heard for covering dough!! I'll buy it!!</p>
<p>Great idea! Since I don't know when my next vacation will be (too long in any case), I will have to try some of the elastic bowl covers next time.</p>
<p>dollar store shampoo caps..... 6? 12? ...1$</p>
Can someone please tell me what sort of flour is used in thia recipe?
<p>I used all-purpose flour.</p>
Thank you. I think that is classed as plain flour in the UK, so I will go with that. Thanks again :)
<p>I make a no knead cheese bread in a Dutch Oven (artisanbreadwithstreve/youtube) now I will add bacon.</p>
<p>Bacon is yummy in everything :).</p>
<p>Looks amazing!!</p>
<p>That is a Great thought</p>
<p>This is a recipe I've been looking for. I'm going to substitute jalapenos for the bacon. Cone to think of it, maybe I'll just add jalapenos to the recipe. </p>
I just learned sometime in the last year that I LOVE jalape&ntilde;os. That is a great idea.
<p>This looks easy and delicious. Will have to try it. However, 2 teaspoons of yeast doesn't sound like enough for the amount of flour. Should it be 2 TBSP?</p>
<p>Nope, 2 tsp of instant yeast. I used Fleischmann's RapidRise Instant Yeast that comes in 3 tiny packs..you aren't even going to need a full 1 pack to make this.</p>
<p>Oh okay. If you use rapid rise you would need less yeast. I'll be using regular yeast so I'll have to use more. Thanks for clarifying that.</p>
<p>While I'm &quot;sitting in a warm place for about 1 1/2 hours&quot;, what do I do with my dough? :-)</p>
<p>Put it on your lap and sing to it. Yeah, I agree, Simon and Garfunkel or maybe some Temptations:)</p>
<p>Play it some Simon &amp; Garfunkel?</p>
<p>Very funny,...took me a second, though! ;-)</p>
<p>I make it quite often, though my bread recipe only calls for 4 cusps flour and 1 1/2 cups water approx. and just 1 teaspoon of salt. I get 2 - 2 pound loafs from it. I am not really sure just what putting black pepper into it brings to the table</p>
<p>Looks delicious! Breadmaker recipe?</p>
<p>Thanks! I have never owned a bread maker. I know, I know, what am I waiting for? Maybe one day soon I will have one in my kitchen arsenal. </p>
<p>Would adding more cheese be a sin?</p>
<p>Sinfully delicious, I'd say. </p>
<p>Look delicious. I have been meaning to start making my own bread. I might have to try this once I get a little more practice.</p>
<p>This is super easy to make. Seriously, jump right in and you will be fine. The hardest part is waiting so long for the dough to proof...</p>
