I am obsessed with savory bread. I don't make a ton of bread, but whenever I do I want to add cheese, and sometimes Jalapenos. Then the thought occurred to me that I should make this a breakfast bread and add bacon! WOW oh WOW was this bread worth the wait. It is a yeasted bread so it takes time to rise, 2 rises to be exact. Making bread in the warmer months is less frustrating. Since the house is already warm/hot it's easy to get the bread rising quickly. But it is a double edged sword, cause then to bake the bread you have to turn on the oven. If this is started early in the day it will be ready for dinner, or start it late and bake at night when it's a little cooler. Then the bread will be ready for breakfast! So here you go. Really it's not that hard Just jump in and make it!
Bacon and Cheese Pull apart bread:
1 cup flour
3/4 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 TBS sugar
2 1/4 tsp instant yeast (1 envelope)
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup water
16 oz Pepper jack cheese, grated
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 pound bacon diced and cooked- fat drained
In a bowl add 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour with sugar, salt and yeast, and stir to mix. I would use the bowl of a mixer. In a small pan heat milk and butter over low heat until butter is just melted, then set aside for 1 minute and add water. Add milk mixture to the flour and with the dough hook min till combined. Then add eggs one at a time, mixing until each is combined. Add in half of the pepper jack and mix until cheese is incorporated. Add the remaining flour and knead the dough. It will still be sticky but don't add more flour.
