“Savory quick bread flavored with bacon and onions. Delicious and unusual for sandwiches to go with soup or toast to go with omelets. The quality of the bacon will make a difference in the taste, so it's worth the extra cost for the good stuff. Plain nonfat yogurt can be used in place of the cottage cheese or sour cream to lower the calories.”
