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. Mary Sue – I wouldn't serve this cold. I think microwaving it is the way to go. The bread won't be as crusty, but I think it would still taste good. Hope it works out!

  2. I would love to bring this to a potluck at work but have no way to bake it there.

    Could I bake it at home and then heat in the microwave?

    Or would it be okay to serve cold?

  3. Holy deliciousness!!! I just threw mine in the oven, and it smells so yummy.. It's going to go great with the football game tonight!! You are a genius!

  4. Delicious! Made this for our preseason football get together. I used turkey bacon and subbed butter for 1/4c can't believe it's not butter and 1/4c marg. Everyone LOVED this! I can't wait for the regular season!

  5. LadyDragonfly – DANG GOOD!! You could even use pesto.

    I have all that in the fridge – might have to try that this weekend.

  6. i have a plan. i'm on a diet, but i have a very large husband, and 2 large teenage boys in the house. what i will do is make this when they haven't eaten all day. i'll bring it out, snatch a few crumbs for myself, and then get out of the way of the ravening hordes.

  7. Wow! One of my facebook likers just linked me to this and all I can say is WHOA BABY! Must try this stat.

  8. I found this on pinterest and had everything but the bacon bits. I just bought some and it is in the oven now!! I forgot I was out of foil – so I hope it turns out just as good without being wrapped in foil!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
