Easy Cheese Bread Recipe

A few weeks ago I shared my recipe for Cinnamon Roll Pulls, a sweet pull-apart bread. In the post, I mentioned a savory cheesy version. I had several requests for the cheesy bread recipe. Well, you asked for it, you got it! I went with a cheddar bacon ranch bread. I knew these flavors would work well together since they are in my favorite dip, Crack Dip. This bread is crazy good! You MUST make it!

How to Make Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread

This is very easy to make. Start with slicing a round loaf of sourdough bread. You are going to cut the bread going both directions. Do not cut through the bottom crust. It should resemble a Blooming Onion. Next, stuff some cheddar cheese slices and cooked bacon in between the cuts. Mix together some melted butter and ranch dressing mix. Pour it all over the bread. Wrap the bread in foil and bake until the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven and dig in!

  • Sourdough works best for this pull-apart bread recipe because the loaf is sturdy enough to be cut into squares and not fall apart.
  • Make sure not to cut all the way through the loaf of bread. Cut it like a blooming onion.
  • You can make this bread ahead of time and refrigerate it until you are ready to bake.
  • You can substitute turkey bacon for the pork bacon.

Pull-Apart Crack Bread is Great for a Party

These Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls are unbelievably good! My favorite part was the ranch butter that was poured over the loaf.  Like the Cinnamon Roll Pulls, this cheesy pull-apart bread is highly addictive. We will refer to this bread as “Crack Bread” from now on!  Give it a try at your next gathering. I guarantee everyone will love it!

  1. The only thing I don't normally have on hand is the bread. Adding that to my list now! I can't stop drooling over the pictures, so who knows what will happen when I make it. Thanks for sharing!

  2. My, oh my. I've made both now and the hubs and son can't decide which one they like more. The son asked me to make pasta with the crack version so he could make a 'better' decision. Ha…I think he just wants more. Thanks so much for the great recipes.

  3. @The First Time Mom – I agree – this is perfect party food!

    @Robertson Pest and Termite – this bread is great tailgate food! Glad you found us!

  4. The BF saw this on al.com this week and asked me to make, which I did today. Oh my!! We now have a new menu addition for football Saturdays! So glad to find your blog.

  5. I just sort of accidentally stumbled on your blog and I honestly think I might be in love. Cheddar and bacon and ranch? With carbs? Gah! Love!

  6. This recipe was pinned on Pinterest and I just have to say thank you for it! My waistline won't like it but I know it will be a hit at my next get-together! Looks amazing and so easy!

  7. This version is like what I was familiar with. In our version we use melted butter and Colby Jack cheese with Sour Dough bread. From now on I am adding the bacon!!! Just had the cinnamon bread again this past weekend. It will be our Sunday breakfast for a good bit, at least, until they tell me to stop!
