Olive, Bacon and Cheese Bread


1 large onion
100 g (3.5 oz) bacon
4 eggs
148 ml (5 fl oz) of white wine
98 ml (3.3 fl oz ) olive oil
250 g (2.5 cup) all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 g (1tsp) of baking powder
150 g (5 oz) grated swiss/cheddar cheese
200 g (7 oz) cooked ham
100 g (3.5 oz) black pitless olives
100 g (3.5 oz) green pitless olives
2 small spoons (2 tbsp) chopped fresh parsley


Preheat the oven to 180C (360 Ft).
In a large bowl, whisk together liquid preparation: the wine, oil, eggs and salt.
Next, in separate bowl, mix the flour and baking powder and stir it into the liquid preparation.

Chop the onion and fry it in a skillet with a bit of olive oil on medium heat, once onion get’s golden color add the bacon and cook for a few minutes, drain the oil and set a side (onion & bacon) for a minute. Cut the olives, parsley and cut the ham to small pieces.

Add all ingredients (onion & bacon, olives, parsley and ham and grated cheese to the dough mixture and mix well.

Pour into a well oiled or buttered loaf pan (I used 9 by 5 inches). First time I made this bread I lined the pan with baking paper and the bread came out much prettier then this time so if you have baking paper, use it to line the pan!

Bake in the oven for 1 hour at 180°C, test to see if done with sticking fork in the middle – it should come out clean! 🙂
