Step 1

Bread Machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and ”basic” bread setting.

Step 2

Unplug bread machine and remove bread pan.

Step 3

Add all ingredients (except the bacon bits) starting with the water into the bread machine “bucket” (loaf pan). Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the water (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together).

Step 4

Place the bread pan back into the bread machine and plug in bread machine.

Step 5

Enter the correct settings (2lb, light color and basic) and press "start" button.

Step 6

After the bread machine has finished its FIRST kneading cycle, add the bacon bits. You can add them with the other ingredients but the bacon bits will be more broken up and very small if they go through two kneading cycles. Wear oven mitts.

Step 7

After the bread machine has finished its FINAL kneading cycle and before the baking cycle starts, gently sprinkle on some bacon bits on top of the dough. Wear oven mitts.

Step 8

After the bread machine has finished baking the bread, remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container as it will be very hot!

Step 9

In our Sunbeam bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
