Since Ripley Pickles is back on the Nummynumnum train, I feel it is only appropriate to post a cheese bacon ranch butter recipe in her honor. BEHOLD the greatest recipe ever. This recipe calls for bacon bits, but I say cook your own bacon and chop it up. I have not tried this out, so please someone make it and send over your comments! – ts
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.
