Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls: YUM.


With Super Bowl just around the corner, you may be like me and looking for a few yummy appetizers and dips to try out, and I promise, this one is always a hit. I found this recipe for Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls over on Pinterest, and to say it’s amazing is just an understatement . . . it’s perfect!  If you’re making a pot of Slow Cooked Potato Soup or Chicken Tortilla Soup  anytime soon this would make a great addition, or serve it up while you’re watching a little football this weekend. 🙂

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls


  • 1 loaf sourdough bread, not sliced (round is best)
  • 8-12 oz cheddar cheese, sliced thinly
  • 3 oz bag Real Bacon Bits look for this near the cooked bacon; ours was near the meat department
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp Ranch dressing mix


  1. Carefully slice sourdough bread both directions with a sharp serrated knife, being careful not to cut through the bottom of the loaf.
  2. Take cheese slices, and place in between cuts in the bread. Then add bacon (you'll want to push the bacon down into the cuts of the bread.)
  3. Mix together ranch dressing mix & butter. Drizzle ranch/butter mix over bread.
  4. Wrap in foil & place on baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
  5. Unwrap foil, and continue to bake another 10 minutes on 350, or until the cheese is melted. Serve warm . . . enjoy!

  1. Hi Laurie,
    Hoping you can help 🙂
    My husband & I are on a tight budget – following Dave Ramsey’s 7 baby steps. Different couples at our congregation take turns hosting the college age kids for dinner & bible study after worship Sunday nights, and this Sunday it’s our turn. Last time, I made a taco bar and the time before was spaghetti. Do you have any ideas on something I can do that’s frugal & can be partially made ahead of time since I’ll have to get it going before worship? One kid is allergic to tomatoes (so no Italian) and one kid just doesn’t like Mexican food (But beggars can’t be choosers 😉 lol!) Thanks! 🙂

  2. I’m going to make that bread Sunday…it looks yummy! Do you suppose I could used shredded cheddar in place of the sliced? If not, into what size pieces would I slice the cheese? Thanks!
