What a fantastic game-day snack! If you don't believe me ask my hubby as he loved this bread. I could not find a frozen bread dough at my local store so I just made up a batch of bread dough in my bread machine and pulled it out after it finished rising. I used an 11"x7" stoneware pan for baking and formed the dough into that size. The toppings were spot on with flavors (I did skip on the liquid smoke) and this was really tasty. Thanks for sharing diner!! Made for Potluck Tag Game.

Well, this was super yummy! I made my own bread dough and left out off the bacon. lol I know that changes the recipe a bit. I was going to add the bacon to my husbands portion, but changed my mind. I'm sure it's wonderful with, but we really enjoyed it without and would make it again with and add just a bit more liquid smoke. This bread smells amazing while baking and is soooo good fresh out of the oven, but it reheats well. I used it the next day for a sandwich and loved that too!Really can't go wrong with this yummy treat. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This will definately make a great football snack this year, but made this afternoon as a trial run.. and we really enjoyed it here . Made for a great late lunch, did not adjust the recipe, and the cooking time was right on the $$ (money.) Kids can't wait to have again.. Made for 1-2-3 hits..
