Apple-Bacon Mini Loaves Recipe

I came up with this recipe for a tailgate party at a University of Tennessee football game. The school colors are orange and white, so the cheddar cheese was just the right touch. —Jay Davis, Knoxville, Tennessee

"Saw this receipe on today's e-mail; had all the ingredients so tried it. I was not impressed as we enjoy a sweeter bread. The natural taste of the apples didn't shine thru. Perhaps someone else will have better success."

"These loaves would be a wonderful addition to the brunch table. I wasn't sure if I would like the combination of apple, bacon, and cheese in a bread, but they were great, and SUPER moist!"
