Bacon Beer Bread

I’m a teetotaler by choice. But I’ll tell you this -- this bread will be on the menu as often as I can get my hands on nonalcoholic beer

3/4 cup nonalcoholic beer
1/4 cup water
Sugar substitute to equal 2 tablespoons sugar, suitable for baking
2 tablespoons Dijon Country Mustard
2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine
3 cups bread flour
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 cup purchased real bacon bits
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1. In baking pan container, combine beer, water, sugar substitute, mustard and margarine. Add flour and salt. Make an indentation on top of dry ingredients. Pour yeast into indentation.
