Bacon Quick bread recipe

This is a modification of a Food Network recipe for Parmesan herb bread:

Cook four slices of bacon and crumble.

Whisk together 3/4 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs, and a teaspoon of lemon juice.

Separately, combine 1 3/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup grated cheese (I used a leftover packet of shredded cheddar and mozzarella), 1 tablespoon sugar, 2 teaspoons each chopped rosemary and thyme (I used powdered rosemary, which mixes better), 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.

Combine wet and dry ingredients and add the bacon to the batter. Grease and flour a loaf pan, and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.

As I said on FB, it tastes like Thanksgiving. Next time I think I'll use less oil, and more sour cream and onion. The original recipe calls for lemon zest, and all I had today was lemon juice, and I think zest would be better.

A couple of drops of lemon flavoring or lemon oil work well if you don't have lemon zest -- either one comes closer to the zest flavor profile then lemon juice
