Cheese and Bacon Pull-apart Loaf
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (fan forced). Grease and line the base of a 20cm round tin with baking paper. Grease the sides of the tin
  2. Cook the bacon in a small frying pan over high heat for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown
  3. Put the flour in a large bowl. Add the Fairy Cooking Margarine and use your fingers to rub the margarine into the flour until sandy. Add 1 cup of the mozzarella, 1 cup of the cheddar and the bacon. Use a butter knife to combine
  4. Beat the eggs and milk together. Add to the flour mixture and use a butter knife to stir together to form a dough. Turn out onto a floured kitchen bench and gently knead together. Divide into 8 balls
  5. Put the remaining mozzarella, remaining cheddar and parsley in a small bowl and mix to combine. Roll each of the balls of dough into the cheese mixture. Place into the prepared tin
  6. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and cooked
Tips & Hints:
  • To freeze, wrap pull-apart in foil, making sure to cover completely. Wrap again with cling film or place inside a sealable container.
  • To reheat, defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from foil and place on a tray. Bake at 180°C for 20 min or until warmed through and golden.
  • Or, from frozen, remove cling wrap and place bread still covered in foil onto a tray. Bake at 180°C for 20 min. Remove foil and return to the oven for a further 10-15 min or until golden and heated through.
