I'm not a big cheese fan, but there's something so very right about a cheesy bacon brioche. Oh my goodness.
It was indeed very right.
I am so enjoying these posts. And being inspired.
It's a terrific book, and I feel that I am really expanding my repertoire!
>>with the one suggestion that it needed more bacon
Of COURSE it did. It could have been a thin layer of breadcrumbs wrapped around a pile of bacon and it would have needed more bacon.
There is no such thing as too much bacon.
You're bread baking is so nice to read about. Thanks for sharing it with us!
I'm glad people are enjoying it!
DAMN. I would take that loaf and crawl into bed with a towel to catch the crumbs. I almost hate to ask because it will reveal what a debauched pig I truly am, but did you butter it when it was warm?
I know. Buttering would be pointless. BUt.... *giggle*
Ferrett did butter. I was not that brave.
It was amazingly lovely.
great, now I''m wiping drool off of my keyboard....

Cheese and Bread
Apologies on being an anonymous random poster. I just like finding new bread recipes and happened to come across this post while browsing around LJ.
I love to make a bread called Käsebrötchen - which uses either Gouda or Elemental cheese in the dough. Gouda, being a semi-soft cheese, just melts into the bread to make a cheesy taste. I have actually tried to make tiny cubes - as they are rolls actually and not a loaf - of the gouda in my bread and it does not leave cheesy-pockets of goodness :( . So, I think the solution to your problem is using a heavier cheese, like a semi-hard or firm perhaps?
Sorry to bother! Just...thought I would try to help. Hope your next bread goes beautifully!

Re: Cheese and Bread
Anonymous is fine, I'm happy for the feedback! I will try a harder cheese when next I subject my arteries to this treat!
I love your bread posts and oh god, these loaves look delicious.
Now I am hungry.
I will go eat the loaf of Italian bread that we have on the counter nao.
But it won't be as good as the Ginibread.
I am impatiently waiting for a loaf to rise so I can get it into and out of the oven!
...I want it.
Arrrgh, I have got to start making money so I can afford this book.
Evil temptress! Good thing there isn't smell-o-internet or I would really be in trouble. Both loaves look wonderful.
I love torturing people! Hee!

Mmm, bacon! That happens at my house, too.
I'm thinking of making some right now. Bacon....
As for the flavor, it was pronounced delicious, with the one suggestion that it needed more bacon.
At this point I would glare balefully around the table while asking "hmm, I wonder where that extra bacon I bought for this snuck off to...". ;-)
Yes, well. It is hard to not excuse a lust for bacon. However, had they saved some out, they could have had bacon sandwiches...
(sloth, lust, and gluttony are my chosen deadly sins, and since one more will tip me over the edge I'm stopping there)
You are responsible for my renewed baking impulses, which means once I'm living somewhere where there's an oven again (likely back at school), all around me will be treated to free bread.
I just made the best loaf of sourdough I think I've ever made. The bread, she is gooood.
I totally want to make bread now...or come over to your house and steal yours! It looks so yummy. Who doesn't like bacon?
I used to bake bread, but haven't for years and years, except for a no yeast oatmeal bread I make occasionally. I'm feeling inspired now.
IIIIIIiiiiittttt's BACON! ILUVUILUVBACONILUVUILUVBACON!!!!!!
OMG...that's three syllables worth of DAAYUM! Recipe source?
