Bacon bread is the stuff that great days are made of. Soft, doughy bread loaded with bites of salty, briny bacon is the culmination of all of our favorite things. It's downright irresistible. But when you add the fact that this loaf of bread is no-knead -- read: almost no work -- it gets even better. Like, you could make this every single day and live happily ever after (though, for your health, you probably shouldn't do that).
The no-knead bacon bread recipe we found is created by food blogger My Name Is Yeh. We are not surprised that she came up with this wonderful bread because she's also responsible for a few of our other favorite recipes, like these beautiful chocolate-covered grapes. Her mind is obviously full of delicious delights.
Before you get baking, there are a couple of things you should know because the recipe does require some work. First, you have to cook the bacon. (We have an easy way for you to do that.) Second, it takes lots of time -- though almost all of that time is hands off. Third, you will have to get the dough into a hot dutch oven in order to bake it into crusty, golden perfection. This is a tricky operation, but you can do it.
Don't let any of that discourage you because, remember, you don't have to do the physical part of actually kneading the bread -- and that is grand. For the little amount of work required, the reward is pretty great. Look:
