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 – Bacon Cheddar Bubble Bread…

Bubble bread???  I can honestly tell you, I have never heard of “bubble bread” in all my 40 years. After finding this recipe, I believe it will now become a staple at casa de bacon.

That is the finished product after it’s fetched from the oven.  To get a better sense of all the goodness that goes into than bowl, head over to Tasty Kitchen.  Full recipe with terrific photos (including the one featured) for your enjoyment.
