How to make Bacon Cheese & Jalapeno Quick Bread
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees. Ready a 9 x 5 or 9 x 6-inch loaf pan. Grease and set aside.
Step 2: Start to cook the bacon until crisp. Then, blot the grease and let the bacon cool. Once cool enough to handle, crumble the bacon and set it aside.
Step 3: Combine the flour with salt, baking powder, and sugar. Set aside.
Step 4: Place the cream cheese, shredded cheese(s), jalapenos, scallions (if used), and bacon in your main bowl. Mix well until just blended.
Step 5: To the cheese mixture, add the flour mixture along with the egg, milk, and melted butter. Mix well until everything is incorporated. Do not overmix.
Step 6: Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the bread comes out mostly dry.
