Tomato Bacon Skillet Bread that happens to be gluten free!

When my daughter was around 7, we had a ritual most Saturday mornings when she didn’t have a soccer game to get to. We would wake up before the sky turned a mix of gold and orange and blue and start making homemade bread. We’d prep the yeast-sugar-warm water mixture, add in flour and other fixings and watch cartoons while the loaf proofed.

When we finally set the loaf in the oven, she would be too excited to sit and watch cartoons while the loaf baked, so she’d have me turn the oven light on while she sat in front of it, watching it bake. And, I shared her anticipation as there’s nothing quite like a homemade loaf – except maybe eating a homemade loaf while rooting for your favorite football team?!

Well, fast forward 10 years and things have changed some. Along the way she has had to curb her gluten habit and it seems like we are often short on time, come Saturday morning. So, our bread making has changed. These days I am more about easy, skillet loaves that need no kneading or proofing but are still high on flavor and taste – like this Tomato Bacon Skillet Loaf.

Didn’t think you could make a loaf in a skillet? Well, #YesYouCAN with this recipe!

I’ve shared many sweet skillet cakes on here and this savory skillet bread comes together in much the same way. A few simple ingredients like Hunt’s Tomatoes, Ro*TEL and bacon – which I picked up from my neighborhood Walmart store, are mixed and baked up in one skillet.

Celery Bean Tomato Sald is the perfect accompaniment to Tomato Bacon Skillet Bread - both are ready in 40 minutes!

• We start off by melting 1/4 cup of coconut oil – making sure not to heat it up too much.
• To this, 2 eggs are stirred in
• Then 1 1/4 cup of gluten-free flour (you could use regular flour if you desire) is added in along with 1 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.
• A 1/2 cup of buttermilk is stirred in
• Then, a piece of cooked bacon is crumbled into this mixture
• The cans of Hunt’s Tomatoes and Ro*TEL are drained well and a 1/4 cup of Hunt’s Tomatoes, as well as a 1/4 cup of Ro*TEL are added in and the mixture is stirred till all ingredients are well combined.
• 2 green onions are chopped and sprinkled on top before the whole skillet is placed in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees, for 30 minutes.
• This bread is best served warm along with a quick and easy celery and bean salad.

    KITCHEN HACK ALERT   

Now you don’t need to wait 3+ hours to have a delicious, warm loaf to enjoy when you have company over! Now, you can have that warm “loaf” in 40 minutes with no fuss! This easy Tomato Bacon Skillet Bread is an easy Kitchen hack and comes in handy when you have guests over to watch a football game as you can spend more time with them as you throw all the ingredients into a skillet and then toss it in the oven and forget about it – at least till the timer goes off.

Throw in a quick and easy salad that uses the leftover Hunt’s Tomatoes and Ro*TEL along with some fresh celery, garlic, and onions that were also picked up from the produce section of Walmart and you have a simple and delicious bread and salad combo to go along with any other game day eats that might make it onto the game day table.

I knew I liked lil Shashi! Homemade bread is amazing, and I love just sitting there watching it bake, too. Of course, I also love cartoons so that would be a tough decision for me. I love this bacon + tomato combo you've got here. I can just imagine that loaf baking in my kitchen right now, and it smells delicious! :-)

Your daughter is a girl after my own heart, Shashi. I used to sit and watch things bake. Back in the day. Oh my. It was so exciting. Life has changed, but I just took a picture a week or two ago of Hudson propped on his elbows watching the homemade pizza bake. Too. Funny. What goes around... This skillet bread looks absolutely fantastic and I love that it's quick. That's my speed these days, out of necessity. Have a fabulous day, wish we were enjoying a slice of this together! xo

Awww - reading about your Hudson sure does make me miss those days when my daughter was younger - they grow up way too fast, don't they Allie?! And you are right - sometimes they end up surprising us by being little carbon copies of our former selves! :) I sure wish we were enjoying this followed by the best part - a slice of that double D (decadently delicious) chocolate cake you featured! xo
