1 round loaf of sourdough (or similar) bread
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup-3/4 cup chopped cooked bacon
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tbsp. dry ranch dressing mix
Preheat oven to 350F°.
Using a sharp bread knife, cut the bread going in both directions but don’t cut all the way through the bottom.
Place your bread on a large piece of aluminum foil (this will make it easier to wrap it up later).
Place shredded cheese in between the slices. Really pack it in there as best you can.
This part takes the longest amount of time in this recipe so be patient.
This is also why you wouldn’t want to use a really soft bread or else it would tear too easily why you packed the cheese in.
Now add in bacon (as little or as much as you like). Do your best to get in between the slices.
Now take 1 tbsp. dry ranch dressing mix and add it to the melted butter. You can add more dry mix if you like a stronger ranch taste. Give it all a good stir until combined.
Pour or spoon the butter mixture over top of the bread.
Now wrap the whole thing up in aluminum foil and place on baking sheet.
Bake at 350F degrees for 15 minutes. Unwrap from the foil and bake for another 10 minutes (or until the cheese is melted).
Eat it while it is warm, alone, or with dinner and/or soups.
