15. Cheddar bacon beer skillet bread

As the name suggests, this is a richly flavored bread which can be served as a meal on its own. It’s a great way to add extra flavor to a soup meal. The sharper the flavor of the cheddar cheese you use, the richer the cheese flavor will be. The inclusion of beer in the bread adds a unique taste. This recipe is quick to make because it does not contain yeast which must be given time to rise.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 4½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 4 chopped slices of bacon
  • bottle of lager beer
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°
  2. Cook the bacon in the skillet at a medium heat. Remove it when cooked and let it drain on paper towels.
  3. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Add the bacon, chopped onions, and shredded cheese. Stir it all together.
  4. Create a well in the middle of the mixture and pour the beer into it. Stir until the dry ingredients are moist but no more than that. It will make a batter-like dough mixture.
  5. Use cooking spray to liberally coat your skillet before transferring the dough into it. Use a spatula to spread the dough evenly across the surface of the skillet.
  6. Bake the bread for about 50-55 minutes.
  7. Check that it is baked by inserting a knife or toothpick into the bread and making sure it comes out clean.
  8. Allow the bread to cool slightly before serving it.
