Greetings from the Kitchen of Castle Baconia – my home sweet home!
Ready for your FIRST baconized recipe of the new year? I’ve got one that “the father of the King” has blessed – big time – mainly because it’s got his favorite thing in it – BEEEEER!
Well you might be a little young to approve but you get the drift.
Here you are………..you can thank me after you eat your first slice………………..
Bacon Cheese Beer Bread
- 3 cups self-rising flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 12 oz beer (keep in mind that bitter beers become much more bitter when cooked)
- 8 oz cheese 3/4 cut into 1/2 inch cubes, 1/4 shredded
- 2 pieces of bacon just undercooked (do not pat off the grease), chop up the bacon (by the way – the recipe says two slices – I say more!)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl mix together the sugar and the flour. Gently mix in the the beer. The batter will be thick.
Mix in the cheese cubes and bacon.
Pour the batter into a greased bread pan. Top with shredded cheese.
Bake for 40 minutes.
- Remove from pan and let it cool for about 20 minutes on a rack before cutting into it (this is the toughest part – WAITING!!!!)
Now I know that lots of people don’t indulge in alcohol but let’s face it – a lot of the alcohol is long gone when you cook with it and this is really delicious – SO THERE!
No need to get testy!
Give this a whirl………..you will be glad you did – it’s really delicious!!
We can only hope!
