"We recently had a short holiday in the South West of our state and twice we dined at The Highway Hotel, the first times we automatically went to order garlic bread to share as the start of our meal and the waitress strongly recommended their Garlic, Cheesy and Bacon Bread and we were so glad we did and when she came over towards the end of our meal to see if had in enjoyed the bread well I just went I am so stealing that to make myself and she said any times she goes to make it at home her boys with cheese and bacon too they really enjoy it so much. I have made this several times using different breads and toppings for the bacon and also different cheeses, for instance a mix of sharp cheddar and parmesan, mozzarella and cheddar and for the toppings I have used ham. chorizo, pancetta and salami and have enjoyed them all."
