Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread


Bacon-Cheddar-Beer-Bread is filled with the perfect amount of cheddar cheese and salty bacon.  It is perfectly soft and savory.

This post is a little early.  Tomorrow is moving day for us.   They say the top three stressors in life are death, divorce and moving.  I cannot speak on the first two, but I can attest to the third!  Holy crap, this month has been an emotional roller coaster.

After packing my 1 millionth box (only a slight exaggeration), I had a breakdown.  I locked myself in my closet and cried.  I cried because of all the memories this house holds.  It’s the first house my husband and I bought together.  It’s the only squirrel-ridden yard my dog has ever known, these are the rooms that held our sleeping infants and floors that felt their first steps.  I’m anxious about the new neighbors and the new school.  I’m anxious about the huge change in our lives.  Finally, I’m incredibly tired.  Tired of packing, tired of organizing and planning, tired of worrying.   And so I cried.  It felt good, a huge release that I desperately needed.  I kept right on going until I felt a pang from deep inside me.  At that moment, I realized the pang I was experiencing was actually hunger.   After thinking about it for a second, I decided it was time to get out of the closet.  My pity party had become tiresome.  I went in search of comfort food.

Unfortunately, a lot of my kitchen had been packed up.  But I had enough ingredients to make this bacon cheddar beer bread.  Does anything sound MORE like comfort to you??  I love food that includes alcohol!  An excuse to indulge myself.  One beer for the bread, one for me!  This beer bread is outrageously simple and involves only a handful of ingredients.  Mix, stir, bake, that’s it!!!  Then you have warm, cheesy, slightly sweet bread.  All my woes were forgotten!

Next time I fall into self-pity, I know to run to the kitchen, grab a beer and make me some bread!

Easy beer bread that has bacon and cheese baked inside!
Recipe type: bread
Serves: 12
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 T baking powder

  • 1 12 oz bottle beer (I used a lager)

Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients. Add beer, half the bacon and about 1 cup of cheese. Stir until well mixed. Pour batter into your loaf pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven sprinkle remaining bacon, remaining cheese and drizzle with remaining butter. Bake for an additional 25 minutes or until browned, keep an eye on the bread, so the cheese does not burn. Remove and allow to cool in pan for about 5 minutes. Remove and let cool completely.

  9. Hi Lemonsforlulu,
    Thanks for mentioning my recipe! This looks so good, I’m going to give it a try soon. Is there anything that bacon and cheese can’t improve? I think not. Great idea, and thanks again!

  10. Where does the other cup of shredded cheese go? Thanks for helping out

  11. You have mix 1C cheese in the batter, when do you add the other cup? It’s not mentioned.

    • VickieL

      Thank you, Lisa for asking that question. I read and re-read the recipe about 4 times to make sure I didn’t miss it. I can’t see where the other cup goes … Unless it is sprinkled over the top with the bacon. Sorry you didn’t get an answer or reply before now.

      Have a great day.

      • Thanks Vickie, I amended the recipe!

  12. What what? You moved last year?! Haha never knew this!

  13. This bread looks delicious! How is it going a year later….? We moved 2 years ago and it was SO STRESSFUL!! And I was pregnant, which made it all that much worse. Hoping to not do that again anytime soon :)
