Bacon Cheddar Pull-Apart Bread

Serves 2


250g bread or pizza dough (1/2 a pound)
3 rashers of fatty, streaky bacon
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated plus 1/4 cup extra cheese, for sprinkling
2 spears of spring onion (shallots), finely chopped
40g butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 180 C.


  1. In a cast iron frying pan (skillet), fry the bacon on a low heat, so that the fat renders off and the bacon gets really brown and crispy. Put the bacon on a few pieces of kitchen paper to drain. Once it cools, break it up into small pieces. Don’t drain the fat from the frying pan (yet!).
  2. Cut the dough into about 20 small pieces. Put it into a large bowl and pour the melted butter over the top. Also pour in any excess bacon fat from the frying pan.
  3. Add the bacon pieces, 3/4 cup of grated cheddar and the chopped spring onion to the dough and butter mixture. Mix everything together well.
  4. Spoon the mixture back into the fatty cast iron frying pan in an even layer. Sprinkle the extra cheddar over the top.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the top is golden.
