Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pull-Apart Bread


How did we ever throw parties before Pinterest? I find something new and amazing every time I log in and this particular idea changed the way I look at appetizers forever! Allow me to introduce you to the best, easiest and yummiest dip bread and dip appetizer concept EVER (discovered on http://www.plainchicken.com… check them out, they have a lot of awesome ideas)…

Here it is…Pull-Apart Bread!


Ok, so the concept is simple! Here’s what you’ll need for this particular recipe…

1 unsliced loaf of sourdough bread

12 oz cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

3 oz bag Real Bacon bits

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 Tbsp Ranch dressing mix
Slice the bread (preferably with a very sharp bread knife) in both directions.  Do not cut all the way to the bottom. You want The bread to open up but not fall apart.  The pieces should be still connected together on the bottom, but easy to pull apart. Pour the cheese in between the slices and sprinkle bacon making sure both items make it deep into the cuts. Melt the butter and mix it with the ranch dressing. Pour this mixture evenly over the bread and wrap the entire loaf in foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes then remove the foil and continue baking 10 more minutes.


The best part about this recipe is that you can make it with any ingredient you could think of! I placed a few ideas below. Enjoy and I hope your party is a success!

Prep Time: 15 mins ~ Cook Time: 30 mins ~ Total Time: 45 mins

  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 6 strips bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1+ clove garlic, chopped
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup mozzarella, shredded
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon ketchup
  1. Cook the ground beef in a pan over medium heat, set it aside and drain the grease from the pan. Cook the bacon in the pan until crispy, about 6-10 minutes, set aside and drain all but a tablespoon of the grease.
  2. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute. Mix the ground beef, bacon, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, mozzarella, cheddar, worcestershire sauce and ketchup and pour it into a baking dish. *it can be set aside at this point in the refrigerator with a lid on it – to cook a chilled dish, either take out to bring to room temperature or put baking dish in the oven while the oven pre-heats
  3. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the top starts turning a light golden brown and then sides are bubbling, about 20-30 minutes. You could top with some lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with slices of bread, pita chips, celery, or lettuce – whatever you would like for dipping.
