Pull Apart Cheesy Ranch Bread – Crack Bread

This stuff is crack. Steph over at Plain Chicken warned her readers. But I didn’t listen. The one smart thing I did do is make it when I knew people would be over to save me from eating it all.

Last month I had won a basket full of King’s Hawaiian Bread from A Latte with Ott, A’s Iron Chef Competition. So, instead of using sourdough bread I used a King’s Hawaiian Bread Round Loaf.

It is so easy to make too. Just cut the round to form a checkerboard pattern all the way through till you are one inch above the bottom of the loaf.

Fry up about four slices of bacon, crumble and set aside. Then slice a block of Co-Jack cheese into square pieces. I just cut the block in half to form two long pieces of cheese and then sliced. I put the cheese in all the checkerboard cracks. Sprinkled the bacon over top.

Melt a stick of butter and then add one tablespoon of ranch seasoning. Spoon over top of the cheese and bacon.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake on 350 for about 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Let’s be honest, you will not wait till cooled to eat. I didn’t even have time to take a final picture. Sorry:(
