Here you go, BeezieWeezie. This is a breadmaker recipe from a book called "electric BREAD" which is way WAY old - in fact it has a 1996 copyright which is when I got my first breadmaker, and I've been using it since then. But it has the most wonder-delish-mous bread recipes ever, like peanut butter bread (my #1 son's favorite in the world) and some of the most creative but still easy. Course they're all easy when you make 'em in the breadmaker, ain't dey? :)
The first measurement is for a small loaf and the measurement to the right is for a large loaf.
2/3 cup WATER (1 cup)
1 2/3 cup WHITE BREAD FLOUR (2 1/2 cups)
1/3 cup WHEAT BREAD FLOUR (1/2 cups)
4 tsp SUGAR (2 tbsp)
1 tsp SALT (1 1/2 tbsp)
4 tsp BUTTER (2 tbsp)
1/2 tsp GREEN (black will do) PEPPER
CORNS, CRUSHED (3/4 tsp)
1/2 tsp BASIL (3/4 tsp)
pinch GARLIC POWDER (1/4 tsp)
1/4 cup BACON (with fat) (1/3 cup)
1 tsp FAST RISE YEAST (1 1/2 tsp) or
2 tsp ACTIVE DRY YEAST (2 1/2)
You cook the bacon until its almost crisp. Set the fat aside while you crumble the cooked bacon, then remix bacon and fat before measuring.
A couple of times I made a down and dirty loaf of this recipe with the Hormel real bacon bits and it was still really good - you could tell the difference if you'd had the real stuff, but still REALLY good.
Extra pepper's good, brushing with butter when it's partially cooled is really good, sprinkling coarsely ground salt on top is good.
It usually gets eaten up right out of the breadmaker while its still warm so I try to have soup ready for it.
