Cheddar Ranch Bread

Everybody here goes absolutely ga-ga for the combination of bacon, ranch, and cheese.

They really love our snack supper nights because they usually incorporate some combo of those flavors, like in our cheddar, bacon ranch pull apart bread. But this mama doesn’t always have time for all that, even though it is totally drool-worthy.

So on those busy nights, I opt to forgo the frying of bacon and instead make a variation that’s a spin-off of those favorite flavors, and our good old fashioned garlic bread.

This updated version makes a perfect addition to almost any of our favorite pasta dishes. Add in a salad and we’ve got a quick meal to make any hungry-body happy and dinner that’s ready in a snap.

  • 1 full-size loaf of Italian bread sourdough would also work well

  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk Ranch seasoning mix
  • ½ c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • freshly chopped or dried dill optional


  • Stir together spread and Ranch seasoning until smooth.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the edges are starting to brown. Serve immediately.
