1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I used Monterey Jack, Colby and Cheddar mixture)
1 12 ounce bottle of beer (can is fine too)
4 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped (1/4 c real bacon bits)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare a 9"x5" bread pan by greasing with butter. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with a whisk. Make a well in the center. Add bacon, about 3/4 of cheese and full beer into the well. Stir mixture with a spoon until combined.
Pour mixture into prepared bread pan. Add remaining cheese. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of butter. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle remaining butter over the top. Bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until browned on top and loaf thumps when you tap the top.
Remove to a wire rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool on wire rack. You can brush with more butter if you choose.
