This "Cracked Out" French Bread makes a great party appetizer. There is never any left when I serve this! It is always gone in a flash! You could even serve this bread as a side at lunch or dinner. If we are serving it as a side dish, I make half one day and half the next day. If I make the whole batch, we will eat it. Neither of us have any self control around this bread! Make this ASAP! I promise you won't regret it!
"Cracked Out" French Bread
- 4 Tbsp butter, softened
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 loaf French bread, split in half lengthwise
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/3 cup cooked chopped bacon
- 1 cup ranch dressing
Preheat broiler to high.
Spread butter on bread and sprinkle with garlic powder. Place bread under the broiler until it's slightly brown and crispy.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cheese, bacon and ranch dressing and divide evenly over bread. Bake 10-12 minutes, until cheese is melted. (longer if you want the bread crispier) Let sit a few minutes before slicing.
