Crack Bread

Ahhhhh the infamous "crack bread."  First made for a girls' weekend last fall, it's ridiculously good.  Addictive.  And not good for you in the least.  All things that I love in a snack with my girlfriends :)

I first found this on Pinterest.  Here is the reciped as posted on the Betty Crocker Web site:

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Crack Bread
(Crack Bread)
1 loaf of bread (unsliced, sourdough or any hearty bread is good)
1 stick of butter
1 TB ranch dressing mix (I used more like 2T)
1 bag of oscar meyer bacon pieces (3 oz)
1 packet of thinly sliced cheddar cheese (10 oz)

Preheat oven to 350.

Using a sharp bread knife cut the bread going both directions. Do not cut through the bottom crust.

Place slices of cheese in between cuts. Sprinkle bacon bits on bread making sure to get in between cuts. Mix together the butter and ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread

(Note:  after making this the first time, I used a pastry brush and brushed the butter mixture in between the slices to get more of the butter/ranch flavor the whole way down to the yummy bottom of the bread)

Wrap the entire loaf in foil and place on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is melted
