Ingredients

  • 3 slices bacon

  • 1 (1 pound) loaf round sourdough bread

  • 8 (1 ounce) slices Cheddar cheese, or more as needed

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 1 tablespoon dry ranch dressing mix

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium heat, turning occasionally, until halfway cooked, about 5 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch wide strips.

  3. Cut slits halfway through bread in two directions creating a checkerboard pattern. Slip Cheddar cheese slices and bacon pieces into the slits.

  4. Mix butter and ranch dressing mix together in a small bowl; pour over bread, allowing to drip into the slits. Wrap entire loaf in a sheet of aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Unwrap bread and return to baking sheet; bake until cheese is melted and bacon is crisp, about 10 more minutes.

Cook's Note:

May put broiler on when done if you like well-browned to further cook bacon and cheese. Keep in broiler for 1 to 2 minutes. Keep over door open as to not forget. It will be done fast!
