Try this bread sandwiched with ham and apple slices, or cut it into cubes and toast it to make croutons for salads and soups.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together flour and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir together bacon and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk together eggs, milk, and oil in a small bowl.

  • Add egg mixture to flour mixture, and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened; stir in bacon mixture just until incorporated. Transfer dough to a greased (with shortening) and floured 8 1/2- x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.

  • Bake at 350° for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, shielding bread with aluminum foil after 40 to 45 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Cool bread in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and cool 30 minutes before slicing.
