Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, basil and salt in a large mixer bowl. Add water; mix on medium speed of mixer for 1 minute. Add in bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and butter; mix to combine. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 6 to 8 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Form dough into a smooth loaf and place in pan. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place 30 to 40 minutes, or until dough is doubled in bulk.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until done. Brush top with melted butter, if desired. Cool in pan 5 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely on cooling rack.
