Starting the year with food!

I just had to share this recipe that I used last night at a friend's New Year's Eve party.  Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls.

Thank-you Pinterest and PlainChicken.

You can do it too, it is as easy as 1, 2 ~~~7.  The hardest part was cutting the sourdough bread round. 

You start with this.

You slice both ways in one inch strips, do not cut through the bottom.  You load with cheddar cheese and bacon. I used turkey bacon.  

You bake and for the final 10 minutes of bake time you drizzle with ranch flavored butter.  Pull apart and enjoy.  There is also a cinnamon roll version.  I found it here.  Thanks Plainchicken.


1 unsliced loaf of (round is preferable) sourdough bread
8-12 oz cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
3 oz bag Oscar Mayer Real Bacon bits
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.
