4 cups AP flour
2 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp salted butter
1 ¼ cup butter milk
1 large egg
½ lb cooked chopped bacon
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
½ cup chopped chives
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the paddle attachment on low speed mix in the butter, until combined with flour
In a separate bowl mix together the buttermilk, sour cream and egg.
Turn mixer on low and slowly add buttermilk, sour cream and egg mixture. A sticky dough should quickly form.
Turn off the mixer and begin to add in bacon, cheese and chives. Turn mixer back on and mix just enough to combine bacon, cheddar and chives with the dough.
Prepare a lightly floured surface and transfer dough to that surface. Knead the dough a few times and shape it into a round loaf. Cut an X into the top of the bread, lightly breaking its surface.
Place the loaf on a parchment lined baking sheet and put into the oven.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool on a rack and slice to serve.
