Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pull Apart Bread

Today is my little boy’s 2nd birthday. I just have to gush a minute on how much I adore this handsome kid of mine. He melts my heart. It is so crazy how fast time flies by with kids! I swear it was just yesterday we were meeting him for the first time. Seriously, when did he turn from this cute little baby…

….Into this adorable toddler?!

He is so sweet and one of my best taste testers. Although a picky eater at times, he sure can put away the food when he wants to :)

Alright, enough with the cuteness overload, lets get on with the recipe, shall we?!

A few weeks ago, some girls in my neighborhood got together to share new recipes with one another. I decided to bring something quick and easy. I made a new version of this Cinnamon Pull Bread and Cake Batter Pull Bread for them to sample. I had quite a few of them RAVE about how delicious this easy appetizer was.

If you are looking for a quick and yummy snack to share with a crowd, then this recipe is perfect for you!

Instructions

  1. Slice bread to make 1/2 to 1-inch sections slicing almost all the way to the bottom of the loaf. Be careful not to cut too far or to cut through. I used a serrated knife and cut on inch slices all the way down the width way of the loaf. Then I used my kitchen sheers to snip the 1/2 to 1-inch sections on each row, just to avoid any of them tearing off. Place loaf on cookie sheet.
  2. Combine melted butter and ranch dressing mix and stir to evenly combine.
  3. Evenly pour and distribute melted butter/ranch dressing mix between each of the sections, making sure to get in-between each one. Trust me, you want the buttery goodness :) If you need more butter, simply melt as much more as needed.
  4. Evenly distribute the cooked and finely chopped bacon between each of the sections.
  5. Evenly distribute the cheddar cheese between each of the sections, adding more cheese if needed.
  6. Cover bread loosely with foil.
  7. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

Enjoy!
