Smoked Bacon, Garlic, Scallion, Pepperjack Pull Bread (again)




I should make this at least once a week. It's easy and so tasty!!
I start by frying several pieces of bacon. The more the merrier.



 Set the bacon aside, add butter to the bacon drippings...



Sautee scallions and garlic in the butter, bacon drippings....


Score a loaf of bread. Dense bread works best for this. It holds up to the drizzle of butter and bacon drippings...


I used pepperjack and mozarella cheese this time...


Stuff the cheese into the crooks and crannies....



Then spoon the sauteed onions and garlic in too...
Make sure to spoon the butter and bacon dripping into the cracks and pour any extra over the top of the bread.


Into the smoker with a kiss of hickory...



I cover the bread first, until the bread is heated through and the cheese is melty...


Then uncover the bread and let it crisp up a bit...


Top with the crisp, cooked bacon...and a few chopped scallions.



Ready to dig in!







I grabbed a piece while it was hot and gooey...













I love the way the butter and bacon drippings soak into the bread.... :)








Poured a glass of wine...



and called er good.



I can make a meal out of this. A few "pulls" of bread and a glass of wine. Pretty much all I need.

Things are going great here! The garden was slow going for awhile but the tomato plants are doing better and I see a few blooms. The new baby chicks (replacement hens) are feathering out and growing fast. New ducklings will be here this week.
I haven't had the time to go camping, which goes against my grain. lol Should have been out there months ago. I'll figure out a way...
Hope everyone is doing well and having a good spring. Keep safe and thanks for stopping by!

This is just an awesome cook up!
I need to make this, especially since here in Chile I make all my own bread at home. The problem is that I need bacon and I am out. I make all my own bacon too, and I am pig poor right now so I need to just bide my time. It is almost like a standing Pizza so to speak and everything is better with Bacon on it!
Thanks for the ideas. Jim
