    1       c            Buttermilk
    2       tb           Butter
    2                    Eggs
      1/2   ts           Baking soda
    1       tb           Sugar
      3/4   ts           Salt
    3       c            Bread flour
    2 1/2   ts           Yeast (1 pkg Red Star)
                         Add at Mix Bread beep:
      2/3   c            Bacon bits (real bacon,
                         -cooked then chopped, not
                         -canned or artificial)
      2/3   c            Shredded cheese
   This recipe is a combination of Donna Gorman’s
   Bacon/Cheese Bread and her Buttermilk Cheese Bread
   (cookbook III). I'd made the bacon/cheese bread and it
   was good, but it was a rather dense, low loaf. When I
   saw the buttermilk cheese bread recipe, I decided to
   make a few modifications and combine the two recipes
   ... the result is a tall, utterly delicious loaf!
   I then tried it closer to her recipe and, instead of
   adding bacon/cheese at the mix bread cycle, I added 1
   cup of shredded cheese at the beginning. This loaf
   almost brushed the top of my Hitachi! It was HUGE!
   I don't know why these rise so well ... I did warm the
   buttermilk in the microwave for about 1/2 minute and
   the baking soda is unusual. I may try adding a small
   amount of baking soda to some other recipes and see
   what the result is.
   Anyway ... this is now one of our favorite breads!  A
   loaf is baking right now.
