One Christmas, the babysitter brought gifts for my daughter and a basket of goodies, including pecan bread. When I make this bread, I remember that kind soul. —Marina Castle, Canyon Country, California

Ingredients

  • 6 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, chopped
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and reserved drippings until smooth. Beat in egg. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; add to cream cheese mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Fold in pecans, onion, pepper and bacon.

"It's a very unique bread--one everyone in my office loves. Someone bakes it and brings it in several times a year for some celebration or another. It's a very good reason to have office parties :)"

"This is delicious. Even though the recipe doesn't call for it, I sauteed the onion and pepper a little before adding to the batter, and it turned out great. Next time, I would probably reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup, as a lot of recipes have way too much sugar."

"I was very intrigued by this contest winning recipe. What's not to like? Bacon, pecans, cream cheese. I thought this would be a great Christmas gift. I followed this recipe exactly and this is the weirdest thing I've ever made. It was baked properly, toothpick came out clean. It's very dense, looks raw, nothing I could share with anyone. I'm very disappointed with the ingredients that were wasted on this."
