Bacon and Comté bread

Bacon and Comté bread recipe


Bacon and Comté bread recipe, it’s my favorite, I love its smoky smell and the Comté flavor, it’s the first that disappears from the bread basket. Of course if you are lucky enough to find a country smoked bacon, it will give your bread even more flavor. I like it when the Comté takes out a bit of the bread and toasts around it, then it gets brittle and it’s divine. Making homemade bread is very rewarding, you know what you tasted, testing is approved. I don’t use a bread maker so it’s always different. This bacon and Comté bread is also perfect for your dinner aperitifs, paired with rillettes or terrines or even plain.
