Bacon Onion Cheese Bread - Oh My!

I recently discovered a new site with an absolute mother load of amazing recipes- enough to make your head swim and just in time for fall baking ! Woo Hoo!! Mennonite Girls Can Cook is loaded with beautiful pictures and a fantastic selection of wonderful recipes. I have tried a few recipes and all have been top notch! This particular one was a last minute addition to dinner last night because it just needed more than what I had planned - one bite and WonderBoy declared it a keeper ;-)
This is the Onion Cheese Supper Bread recipe I started with.....here is what I actually did

Bacon Onion Cheese Round

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour (1/2 whole wheat, 1/2 unbleached natural white)
  • 1 TBS baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt (garlic salt)
  • 1/4 cup mayo ( light)
  • 3/4 milk (1/2 of this was buttermilk)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 TBS melted butter
  • 1 small - medium onion sliced thinly
  • splash of olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 5 slices cooked turkey bacon
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary finely chopped
Directions
  1. Cook onion with a little olive oil in your favorite skillet.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together and add milk(s) egg and mayo.
  3. Mix in cheese and bacon.
  4. Place dough in a well greased 9" round pan spread out to even level with back of spoon.
  5. Top with sauteed onion, rosemary and a sprinkle or two of seasoning - I used a little "Johnny's Garlic Spread" - go with your mood and what's on hand and by all means feel free to add more cheese on top as well ;-)
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until brown and wonderful around the edges.

This lends itself wells to what's on hand and can easily be played around with to compliment whatever you are serving it with - think olives, thinly sliced tomatoes, parmesan cheese and a pasta dish , or go rustic and think soups and stews - easy peasy and oh so good !!

I love that website too. I'm trying to talk Nathan into doing her frozen creamed corn thing so we can have corn on the cob tasting corn for winter. Wouldn't that be a great way to brighten up the snowy days up here???? I'm with Connor and I haven't even taste the dish but it LOOKS like a keeper.
