  1. This receipe is much like the bacon bread I buy at my local Farmer’s Market. Their bread includes cheese. I wonder how your receipe would turn out if I added a small amount of cheese.

    • I think adding cheese to it is a great idea! You’ll have to try it and come back and let us know how it turned out.

    • I think it would be awesome to toast the bacon bread and then melt cheese on it.

      • That does sound delicious! If you try it, you’ll have to come back and let us know how it worked out. Thanks for commenting.

    • You’re welcome! It’s fun to come up with different combinations of food that you wouldn’t normally think of.
