Cheesy Bacon Ranch Pull Bread

I just had to share this fun, scrumptious pull bread because it is so easy to make and incredibly addicting. It is super quick to assemble and takes less than thirty minutes to bake. It's perfect for snacking on with the family on movie or game night at home.

Grab a round loaf of bakery bread. Cut some slices in it. Stuff it with bacon, cheese, butter and ranch mix. Then, wrap it in foil and toss it in the oven. Um, how simple is that?


1 whole (unsliced) loaf of sourdough bread (round is recommended)
8 ounces shredded or thinly sliced cheddar cheese
3 ounces jarred or bagged real bacon pieces/bits
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon dry ranch dressing mix


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a sharp bread knife, cut the bread going in both directions - making a crisscross pattern. (Do not cut through the bottom crust.)

Stuff cheese and bacon down into all the cuts.

Mix together melted butter and ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread.

Wrap the entire loaf in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Open foil to expose top half of bread. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. Serve immediately.
