Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread

Bacon. Cheddar Cheese. Beer. Oh, and bread. Four ingredients to win the heart of any man, or woman!
Melissa's Cuisine:  Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread
This beer bread is definitely my favorite version I have made so far.  I took my basic beer bread recipe, which was already pretty amazing, and amped it up by adding in a generous amount of bacon and cheddar cheese.

Because bacon and cheese make everything better, am I right?

I served this bread with a generous bowl of chili, which coincidentally also has beer in it.  If you're a beer lover, you'll want to try this bread.  Actually, even if you're not, you'll want to try this bread.

I'm not a fan of beer, honestly, I can't stand the smell.  But there is just something about beer bread.  The alcohol and most of the beer flavor bakes out leaving you with a nutty and somewhat sweet bread.  Perfect for dipping in chili, slathering with butter, or (my favorite) as the best grilled cheese sandwich you'll ever have!
