Bacon and Cheddar Soda Bread

Bacon and Cheddar Soda Bread
St Patrick's Day is this weekend and I can't help but thinking of a fresh loaf of Irish style soda bread, all nice and warm from the oven and slathered in butter, yum! Soda bread is so easy to make! You simply mix flour, baking soda, salt and milk, form a dough, shape it and bake it. For this bread I threw in plenty of cheddar and bacon making it absolutely irresistible. I have a loaf of this bacon and cheddar soda bread on my menu for St Patrick's Day this year!

I found a couple of new asparagus recipes which I posted this week - well one tomorrow - and I am drooling at the mouth waiting for farm fresh asparagus at the end of the month (I hope).
