Apple-Bacon Mini Loaves

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

    I cannot get enough of these! These are so yummy! I made them as muffins instead of loaves, and it makes about 8 muffins. A great on-the-go breakfast!

    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!
