Yield: one loaf


1/2 each dough from Lean Italian Bread recipe (or combine equal amount of dough from the Lean Italian Bread and the Rich-Egg Bread recipe.)
1 c. sausage, cooked, or Canadian bacon, chopped
2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 c. egg wash

After the bread is mixed and punched down, chop it into pieces on a cutting board.

Dump the bacon, cheese, chives and egg wash over the bread and mix together with your hands or a bench knife until the pieces of bread are coated with the other ingredients.

Place into a greased loaf pan and allow the bread to double in size.

Bake the loaves at 325 for about 40 minutes or until the bread is hollow when tapped.
