Bacon & Cheese Bread

Bacon & Cheese Bread

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 2 hrs 45 mins
  • Yields: 3 - 4 people. Depends how hungry you are!


60g Melted Butter

2 Cups of Self-Raising Flour (Sifted)

1 Cup of Milk

Small sprinkle of Italian Herbs (Optional)

A pinch of Salt

Diced Bacon and Grated Cheese (As much as you would like and save some for the topping).


1Melt the Butter and then mix everything else in the bowl until combined.

2It should form a sticky dough.

3Next sprinkle some flour onto the bench or a board to knead the dough.

4Keep doing this until it is no longer sticky and feels like a springy elastic dough.

5Once that is done, form it into whatever shape you want Eg. Bread Roll Balls or just a Bread Loaf like I have done 🙂

6Once dough is formed, add the rest of the Cheese and Bacon on the top.

7Line the Slow Cooker with Baking Paper (I used 2 sheets) and put your bread dough in.

8Cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 hours (Although this one I cooked took 3 hours 20minutes, as every slow cooker is different) BUT, keep checking it after the 2 hour mark to see if it is going okay! 🙂

9Also DO NOT FORGET to put a Tea Towel under the lid and fold over the top to stop any water dripping onto the bread 🙂 🙂

10Once cooked, take out of slow cooker and cool down a little and put melted butter on 😀 YUM!

I loved this bread.
Yes it is a little dense but it’s an easy recipe that yields a blooming delicious savory loaf. It’s great with some butter and a cup of soap. I’d 100% make this again with different flavour combinations.

Can you freeze the loaf either cooked or uncooked?

So yummo, great for snacks. I made the first batch & was so nice I made a second one & spread some tomato sauce on the top before adding the top layer of bacon & cheese…….Yummo

How do you tell if it’s cooked

No need to pre cook it Bob 🙂

Do you cook the bacon first or it cooks during the bake time ?

That’s correct Tim. It’s a unit of weight measurement – grams 🙂

It could stick with just oil Stephanie, I’d recommend the paper

Can you use oil spray instead of baking paper to line the dish

The nicest bread I’ve made in a looooooooooooong time! Lots of cheeses and lots of bacons…

Dry. It becomes damp during use. More info HERE

Very simple to make and so yummy, personally I would cook on high for 2 hours and low for the rest as my slow cooker cools hotter then others. Other then that I highly recommend this recipe, it makes a great side dish for lasagna etc or school lunches

Quite doughy and a little bland. Will up the dried herbs next time! Watch your slow cooker, I left mine in for 2 hours and was quite burnt! My fault, will check regularly next time 🙂
