I love a good cheesy bread recipe because . . . duh . . . cheese and bread! Who doesn’t like that combo!?!?! What could possibly make it better? Bacon and ranch, of course.
This is the type of snack that makes it to my holiday feasts. I am a self-proclaimed cheese addict and my mom is a full on carb-aholic! So between the bread and the cheese we are both happy. It’s great to have a few quick and easy recipes like this one for the busy holiday feasts. Cheesy bread can be ready in no time. That lets you focus on the stars of your holiday feast, a golden brown turkey, glazed ham or perfectly cooked prime rib. Mmmmm. I am ready to feast!
For this Bacon Ranch Cheesy Bread, you can pre-cook the bacon so that everything is ready when you need it. Then just mix the butter and dry ranch dip, slather it on the bread. Top with cooked bacon and loads of cheese. Bake, cut and serve.
Good food doesn’t have to be complicated. It just has to be cheeeeesy and bacon-y! I should have t-shirts made because those are some words to live by. I haven’t met a savory recipe that couldn’t be improved with a little (or a lot!) of bacon and cheese. In fact, I try to add cheese to just about anything I make. No need for me to add cheese to this recipe because the cheese is the main ingredient!
- 1 Large French or Sourdough Loaf - sliced in half lengthwise
- 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter - room temp
- 1 ounce Ranch Dip Mix (I use half the package for a more mild ranch flavor)
- 1/2 Lb. Cooked Bacon - chopped
- 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- 1 Cup Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- Place bread on large baking sheet.
- Mix butter and dry ranch dip until combined. (use 1/2 package for lighter ranch flavor or whole package for a strong flavor) Spread mixture onto bread.
- Top evenly with chopped bacon.
- Mix mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Layer cheese on top of bacon.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melty. Broil on high for 2-3 minutes to brown top.
- Slice and serve.
