Savory Bacon-Gruyère Bread

Savory Bacon Gruyère Bread

Savory Bacon-Gryere Bread

The word savory is clearly defined as something baked, which is full of flavor and delicious.  A savory treat is usually a good accompaniment to a tea,  coffee, a brunch, or a meal somewhere in between.  Well, I think we've met our savory winner.  This  bread is a new recipe for me, which was was introduced to me by a lovely neighbor who comes from France.  Coincidentally, she invited me for an afternoon visit, and served the bread as our little savory snack.  It was lovely, and when I found out the recipe hailed from France, it was even more lovely to me.  This is a great bread for a brunch, for an afternoon snack, or maybe to accompany a soup in the evening.  The bacon  adds the bit of savoriness to it, while the bread remains nice, light and airy.  I have yet to not receive great responses from this recipe.  You can make it in a loaf and slice it, or perhaps you might enjoy it in a muffin form.  You can double up on your cheese and bacon amounts if you desire, but personally, I think it's perfect and savory, just the way it is.
