Ingredients

1 (13.2-ounce) package refrigerated French bread dough (such as Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread)
1/4 cup shredded Gruyère cheese
2 finely chopped uncooked bacon slices

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Remove dough from package. Place dough on a lightly floured surface; lightly dust dough with flour. Cut dough in half crosswise; cut each half lengthwise into 4 strips to form 8 strips total. Working with 1 strip at a time, stretch strip gently to extend length; tie in a knot, tucking the ends under. Arrange the knots 3 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

3. Sprinkle with Gruyère cheese and chopped uncooked bacon.

4. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden.
