  • 1 round loaf Sourdough bread unsliced
  • 3/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 Tbsp. ranch dressing mix dry, do not prepare
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 5 strips bacon cooked and finely chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese you may need more depending on how cheesy you want it


  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Grab a bread knife and slice from side to side in both directions, leaving about an inch of space between each slice. Make sure that you don’t cut all the way through the bottom of your bread.
  • Stuff the cheese and diced bacon pieces between all the cuts in the bread.
  • Melt the butter, combine it with the ranch dressing mix and garlic powder. Drizzle it over your bread.
  • Wrap the loaf of bread in aluminum foil and cook for 20 minutes or until all your cheese is melted.
  • Then, once your bread is out of the oven just do as the name suggests and pull it apart and eat it! Enjoy!
