CHEESY BACON RANCH BREAD 

The fall sports season is upon us, whether it’s cheering on college rivalries, drafting your Fantasy Football team, or even the Super Bowl, you’re going to need some delicious snacks to keep your energy up.

Anyone can make Garlic Bread, but if you want to up your game in time for kickoff, you should make a delicious loaf of Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bread. It’s loaded with rich, savory flavors and is the perfect blend of gooey and crunchy. You can serve it up as a side dish or slice it into strips for a yummy, cheesy pull apart bread appetizer.

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bread is highly customizable: you can use any type of cheese you’d like, from cheddar cheese to mozzarella cheese. You can add veggies to it, like green onions, chives, olives and more. The crispy outside of the bread is fantastic with the equally crunchy bacon bits contrasting against the gooey richness of the cheese, mayo and ranch dressing mix.

HOW TO MAKE CHEESY BACON RANCH BREAD

  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Cut the loaf of bread in half lengthwise.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the mayonnaise, ranch, shredded cheese, and bacon in a small bowl.
  • Use a spatula to equally spread the cheese on each half of the bread.
  • Place under the broiler until golden brown, about 7 to 9 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly before cutting into pieces and serving.

VARIATIONS ON CHEESY BACON RANCH BREAD

  • Bread: You can replace the French bread with anything from Texas toast to ciabatta to sourdough bread. Just make sure that you choose a loaf that is long and flat that can be easily sliced in half lengthwise to put the toppings on.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH CHEESY BACON RANCH BREAD

  • Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs: These are incredibly easy to make, and you’ll never go back to normal hot dogs after you taste the savory crunch of these bacon wrapped treats.
  • Oven Baked Beef Tacos: My favorite thing about this recipe is that you can pop them into the oven and let them bake while you keep watching the game. They have a relatively short cook time and they are absolutely delicious.
  • Baked Cuban Pork Party Sliders: Sliders are great for game day because they are so shareable and easy to make. These baked sliders are doubly easy because you don’t have to work on them all afternoon and they still have that delicious, oven baked flavor that makes them so savory and good.

HOW LONG IS CHEESY BACON RANCH BREAD GOOD?

  • Serve: You shouldn’t leave your Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bread out at room temperature for longer than about 2 hours.
  • Store: Store your leftover cheesy bread in a sealable, airtight container or in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge. It should stay good for up to about 4 days before it’s time to let it go and make another.
  • Freeze: You can freeze the bread for up to 5 months in an airtight container. Let the bread fully cool down to room temperature before sealing it up and putting it in the fridge or freezer.
