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!
