I enjoy making this delicious breakfast bread since it's very easy and a nice change of pace from sweeter breads. It's a "never-fail" treat, and friends always ask for the recipe. The hearty ingredients make it a complete meal in one pan.


  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup diced fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup each shredded Monterey Jack, Swiss and sharp cheddar cheese


  1. In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Stir in milk. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to egg mixture and mix well. Stir in bacon, ham and cheese. Pour into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm.
Editor's Note: Baked loaf may be frozen and reheated.
