With this Gluten-Free Bacon and Cheese Bread, you will not need anything else for breakfast. The incredibly delicious savoury bread is made with bacon, cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, chives or green onions, plus some basic pantry ingredients. This gluten-free breakfast bread is hearty and most satisfying.

This rustic gluten-free bacon and cheese bread is super simple to make. Once you cook the bacon, all you have to do is mix the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients and bake. First, the bread was lightly covered with foil and partially baked to keep the bread soft and moist. Then, towards the end of the baking sprinkle the top with some more cheese and bake it a few more minutes, until the bread has a tasty cheesy crust.

I love to start my day with something savoury. After all, who doesn’t love bacon and cheese? When you combine the two ingredients in a bread recipe, you will get a cheesy bread with crispy bacon bits and a perfect cheesy crust. For extra flavour, I have added chives, or you can use sliced green onions. All the flavours combined are magical in this gluten-free bread.

This gluten-free bread is for those who cannot tolerate yeasted bread. For fiber, I added flaxseed, and for fats, I used heart-healthy olive oil. I have also added sundried tomatoes, the tomatoes are intensely flavoured and are a good source of nutrients. They provide vitamins C, K, iron and, most importantly, lycopene. Lycopene is an antioxidant documented to lower the risk of certain cancers. In this gluten-free bread recipe, I used sundried tomatoes that are packed in oil. They are much softer and are excellent to use in baking.

The cheddar cheese that I added to this savoury bread gives it a delicious cheesy flavour, and the bacon adds a bit of smokiness. I especially love the crispy bits of bacon throughout the soft cheesy bread.

When to serve gluten-free bacon and cheese bread?

You will love this! Not only this bread is an excellent way to start your day. The savoury gluten-free bread will keep you full for hours. However, on occasion I have used it as an appetizer with a smear of hummus or fresh avocado. To do this, I slice the bread in portion sizes and place it in a hot oven, about 450 F. Bake it for about 3 – 4 minutes and then let it cool. Then I top the bread with any variety of spreads. YUM!

Another tasty way to serve this gluten-free, yeast-free bread on hot summer days is with a salad. Or if you are thinking cool evenings, spread the bread with garlic butter and serve it with soups or hearty stews. There are so many ways to serve this gluten-free bacon and cheese bread 🙂
