Or, or you may prefer to use a tougher textured, store-bought french boule, like I did, for this recipe.

The Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Cut the boule in long slices about an inch apart. BUT DO NOT CUT THROUGH THE BOTTOM OF THE LOAF!!
  • Now cut across the first cuts, creating a crisscross cutting pattern in the bread.
  • Slice the cheeses into 1/4 inch thick by 1 inch or so pieces and stuff them into the bread slices.
  • When all the bread cuts are stuffed with the cheeses, wrap the loaf in tinfoil, place on a baking sheet, Or a pie plate, like I did here) in center of the oven, and bake until all the cheese is melted; about 20 minutes.
  • Note: If you wish you can add the cooked bacon and peppers in with the cheese and bake it all. I did NOT do this.
  • I wanted a faster recipe so I chose to use the stove top at the same time as the oven to save 20 minutes.
  • The other reason I didn’t put the bacon and peppers into the bread before baking. I was worried the bacon might make the bread a bit soggy. That would taste fine, but the bread wouldn’t be strong enough to pull apart without breaking too soon. It MIGHT work. If you try it let me know!

A Tip: To support the bread in the oven I chose to put it in a pie plate. All that cheese is heavy and the bread will hold its round shape better if the sides have some support. A flat baking sheet will work too. But the bread might spread a bit more.

Smoked Cheesy Bacon Bread

Smoked Cheesy Bacon Bread ready for the oven. The pie plate presses the cut, stuffed bread together as the cheese melts. This helps to embed the cheese more firmly into the loaf.

Meanwhile Saute’ bacon on medium until cooked.
When the bacon is half done add peppers and half the chives.
When the bread is done, unwrap it and sprinkle the bacon mixture over the loaf, pulling the bread pieces gently to thoroughly distribute the topping. Garnish with the fresh chives and serve on a tray.
This is finger food, but plates, napkins and forks may be appreciated nearby.
