Bacon bread

Ingredients for 8 people:

Ciaccia con friccioli
  • 400 grs bacon
  • 1 yeast
  • 800 grs flour
  • water
  • salt
  • pepper


Dice bacon into cubes and melt on a saucepan. Dissolve yeast in ¼ liter lukewarm water.

Once bacon has lost its fat, take off the flame and let cool down. Put flour in a bowl, add bacon with its oil, two pinches of salt and abundantly sprinkle with freshly ground peppercorns.

Start kneading and mixing ingredients by slowly adding water with yeast. If necessary, add more water until reaching the right stiffness of dough. Form a loaf and wrap with a damp cloth, making raise until dough is twice its initial volume.

Once well raised, put into the oven at 180°C for about one hour. Let cool down and serve sliced.
