Cheddar Bacon Pulls

It’s not often that I post other peoples recipes, but this might be the perfect appetizer to try this weekend when you are enjoying your favorite sporting event!  I know it’s not very gourmet, and I was going to try and doctor it up, but really….sometimes a little ease and a little extra salt is the perfect combination with that ice cold mug of….soda!  I tried this recipe from “Plain Chicken” for Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls it was a huge success.  I can’t say it’s something that anyone should make on a regular basis, but one little piece can’t hurt too much, right?  Also, check out my other appetizer recipes.  There are a lot of good ones to choose from!



Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls (adapted from plain chicken)

  • 1 unsliced loaf of (round is preferable) sourdough bread
  • 12 oz shredded cheddar
  • 3 oz bag Oscar Mayer Real Bacon bits (I prefer to use my own crumbled bacon)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp Ranch dressing mix

Using a sharp bread knife cut the bread going both directions. Do not cut through the bottom crust. Place slices of cheese in between cuts. Sprinkle bacon bits on bread, making sure to get in between cuts. Mix together butter and Ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread. Wrap in foil the entire loaf in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted
