Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
This Irish soda bread has it all. And when we say "all" we mean large chunks of Claddah Bo Irish Cheddar cheese or Truly Grass-Fed Cheddar cheese and bacon pieces.

Combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cheese, bacon pieces, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, egg, and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Add to flour mixture and knead; adding additional all-purpose flour as needed until all ingredients are incorporated and dough forms a ball.
Place dough on to prepared baking sheet. Score dough, using a sharp knife, with an "X." Brush top of dough with remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter.
