Ingredients


  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine
  • 1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups (5 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 10 to 12 strips cooked bacon, crumbled (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon chives

Directions


Heat milk, water and butter until warm (100° to 110°F). Pour into large mixing bowl and add yeast. Stir and let rest for 5 minutes. Beat in eggs.

Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Add to liquid mixture and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Combine cheddar cheese, Asiago cheese, bacon and chives in a bowl. Reserve one third; stir remaining cheese mixture into batter. Pour into greased 9-inch round cake pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, 40 to 50 minutes.

Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 20 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese mixture over bread. Return to oven and bake additional 5 to 10 minutes until well browned and bread is done. Cut into slices and serve warm. Refrigerate leftover bread.
