Cheesy Pull Apart Bread Ingredients:
This recipe gets amazing flavor with just 5 ingredients!
- round sourdough bread loaf

How to make cheesy pull apart bread:
To get started making this pull apart bread, first go ahead and preheat your oven to 350°F. Then carefully slice the sourdough bread in both directions (about 2-inches apart). Use a sharp serrated knife for this part and be careful not to cut through the bottom of the loaf.
Take the cheese slices, and place in between cuts in the bread. Next add the bacon (you'll want to push the bacon down into the cuts of the bread.)
In a small bowl, mix together the ranch dressing mix and butter. Drizzle the butter mixture all over bread.
Wrap all this goodness in some aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for about 15 minutes.
Unwrap the foil, and continue to bake the pull apart bread another 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Separate the bread pieces to serve and enjoy this delicious cheesy bacon ranch pull apart bread!
