Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls aka Crack Bread {repost/appetizer}

PERFECT for New Years Eve!!

 Excuse my fancy paper plate picture!  This was hastily prepared for New Years Eve {2011}

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls aka Crack Bread
1 unsliced loaf of sourdough bread (preferably round)

  • 8 to 12 ounces Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

  • 3-ounce bag Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • 1 tablespoon ranch dressing mix

  • Using a sharp bread knife, cut the loaf in both directions in a checkerboard pattern, being careful not to cut through the bottom crust.

  • Place slices of cheese between cuts.

  • Sprinkle bacon bits on bread, making sure to get between cuts.

  • Mix butter with ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread.

  • Wrap loaf in foil and place on baking sheet.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  • Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. 

  • I found the recipe in blogland and then used this version for my recipe (and the NYT picture is more appetizing than mine!)
