Cheesy Ranch Pull-Apart Bread

Cheesy Ranch Pull-Apart Bread


This Cheesy Ranch Pull-Apart Bread is completely addictive, and will be a huge hit at your next BBQ or party. I combined a favorite family recipe for cheesy ranch bread, with the fun pull-apart bread idea that is so popular right now. It works perfectly, and the presentation is gorgeous! It’s much easier to let people pull off a piece of the bread than to try and slice through melty cheese.

Let me show you how easy it is to make cheesy ranch pull-apart bread.

 

Cheesy Ranch Pull-Apart Bread

 

Start by using a serrated  knife to cut the bread. For pull-apart bread you want nice sized squares that are easy to pull out. Cut the loaf on the diagonal down one side, then switch sides and cut in the opposite angle. Cut about 3/4 of the way down into the bread. You’ll want to leave the bottom of the loaf uncut so that it stays together.

Place the loaf on a sheet of aluminum foil.

In a small bowl, combine softened butter, mayo and ranch dressing mix. Spread the ranch mixture between the slices, then sprinkle shredded cheese between the slices as well.

If you don’t like mayo, don’t worry.  You won’t even know it’s in there. You need the mayo to make the mixture creamy.

Wrap the bread loaf in foil and bake in the oven at 350 for about 25 minutes, or until heated through.
