Potato-Bacon Batter Bread with Caramelized Onions

Directions

  1. In a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Transfer 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings in skillet to a small bowl; set aside. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the remaining drippings from skillet.
  2. Cook onion in hot drippings in skillet over medium heat about 6 minutes or until dark brown. Remove from heat; set aside.
  3. Brush the reserved bacon drippings over the bottom and sides of a 2-quart square baking dish. Sprinkle bottom and sides of dish generously with cornmeal; set aside.

Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the remaining 2 cups flour, the bacon, onion, and mashed potatoes until a soft, sticky batter forms.
  5. Transfer batter to the prepared baking dish. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 40 minutes).

*Tip

For 1 cup mashed potatoes, cook 2 small peeled and quartered red or russet potatoes (12 ounces total) in lightly salted boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes or until very tender; drain well. Use an electric mixer or a potato masher to mash potato. Or use 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes or refrigerated mashed potatoes.

To Make Ahead:

Place cooled bread in an airtight container or wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To freeze, place cooled bread in an airtight container or resealable freezer bag; freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw wrapped bread in the refrigerator.
