It is no secret that I love to bake. I also love to watch cooking shows on TV. I only needed to watch one episode of The Great British Baking Show to get hooked. I’ve been having fun with the Great British Baking Show Bakealong and discovering interesting British foods like the Bedfordshire clanger.  Prior to the bakealong and its challenges I’d already tried a treat I’d never heard of before the Apricot Couronne. It’s a showstopping treat usually served around the holidays. I immediately fell in love it and knew I wanted to make a savory one at some point. That time is here and I give you the Goat Cheese, Bacon and Sundried Tomato Couronne. It’s a delicious bread that would make an excellent addition to a party buffet or a perfect Game Day food.

How Was the Goat Cheese, Bacon and Sundried Tomato Couronne?

It was really delicious. The goat cheese half melted into the bread, the smoky bacon really came through and the hit of bright tomato was a delight.

This bread was wonderful all on its own and it actually was better the second and third days.

I served it the first night with my homemade cream of broccoli soup. This was a heavenly pairing. As I mentioned above this bread would be an awesome Game Day snack because you can just slice and eat it. The bread is a wonderful side to soup or would also work well with a dip.
