Bacon, Olive & Cheddar Bread

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it just looked so amazingly yummy, I had to make it! I changed a couple things here and there and fiddled with some measurements, but, the end result was a hearty, savory bread with so much flavor it could almost stand alone as a meal! The bread "dough" was really more like was quite wet and "sticky"....please don't let that scare you! The end result was perfection! Enjoy!

1 tsp butter
5 green onions, finely chopped
2/3 c white wine
1/3 c. olive oil
4 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c. ham, diced
2/3 c. sliced olives (black, green or a combo of the two)
2 Tbl fresh parsley OR 1 Tbl dried parsley
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350F

Melt 1 tsp butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in chopped green onions and saute for 3 minutes. Set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the wine, oil, eggs and salt. In a separate bowl mix the flour and baking powder together. Stir the wine mixture into the flour mixture.
Add the sauteed green onions, cooked & crumbled bacon, ham, olives and parsley to the bread mixture. Stir well to combine. Add the cheese. Stir. 

Pour into a greased loaf pan and cook for 60 to 63 minutes.
