Being the wonderful lady that she is, she’s shared the recipe with the paper and now, through the, I share it with you.

Better with Bacon – Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls…

Sometimes it seems like I find things in bunches…the bacon blotter stories last week and now this week, tear away bacon bread recipes…

Look at that pure hunk of goodness right there.  It’s called a “pull”, I call it hot damn!  Believe it our not, it comes from the New York Times (yeah, I know, really, the New York Times)

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls


  • 1 unsliced loaf of sourdough bread (preferably round)
  • 8 to 12 ounces Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
  • 3-ounce bag Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits (or just cook some up and pulse it, it’d taste batter)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon ranch dressing mix


  1. Using a sharp bread knife, cut the loaf in both directions in a checkerboard pattern, being careful not to cut through the bottom crust.
  2. Place slices of cheese between cuts.
  3. Sprinkle bacon bits on bread, making sure to get between cuts.
  4. Mix butter with ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread.
  5. Wrap loaf in foil and place on baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  7. Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Better with Bacon – Killer Bacon Cheese Hot Dogs…

“Killer” being the optimal word here…but hey, we’re all gonna die someday! Might as well enjoy ourselves and grab a couple of these.

Killer Bacon Cheese Hot Dogs


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 8 all-beef hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup barbeque sauce, or amount to taste
  • 1 small red onion, diced


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil grate, and set 4 inches from the heat.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Place hot dogs on grill; cook until browned, 5 to 8 minutes, turning once, or until done to suit your taste. Lightly grill hot dog buns.
  4. To assemble sandwiches, place a slice of cheese and bacon on each roll. Add a hot dog, top each with 1 tablespoon barbeque sauce, or desired amount, and red onion.

You know you want one ;-)

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!  Back to the grind tomorrow…
