My family enjoys this wonderful cheese bread with soup or stew. It’s also great as an accompaniment to dinner.
6 slices bacon
3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup chopped onion
1-1/2 cups milk
2 large eggs
In a 10-inch skillet, cook the bacon until crisp; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of the pan drippings. Crumble the bacon.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; mix well. Stir in the bacon, shredded cheese and onion.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the reserved pan drippings, milk and eggs. Add to the flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.
Spoon into a greased 5×9-inch loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 1 hour. Invert onto a wire rack immediately. Makes 12 servings.
