A Savory Delight

Savory Bacon Gruyere Bread, a French delight that makes the perfect snack, or brunch addition to any menu. A savory is a snack that has a salty, pungent taste, thus the opposite to sweet. You’ll usually find that a savory treat is a good accompaniment to a tea, coffee, brunch, or a meal somewhere in between. This bread recipe is new to me. The introduction came from our lovely french neighbor. 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 savory bits, 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.
