Cheddar Bacon Ranch Bread

I don't have a photo of this one in my own files so I had to rely on searching for an image on the net labeled for 'free reuse' - this is one of those recipes that was a huge internet 'fad' about 1 1/2 years ago although it's been made for years and years in various versions.  I make my bread rounds homemade but it's fairly easy to find them made at your local grocery store in the bakery department.  Just be sure you don't cut through completely to the bottom, and sprinkle the yummies all way into each 'pull'.

Cheddar Bacon Ranch Bread

1 unsliced loaf of round bread
1 1/2 c cheddar cheese, shredded or thin sliced
1/2 c crumbled, cooked bacon
1/2 c butter, melted
1 T Ranch dressing mix

Cut the bread downward in both directions but don't cut through the bottom crust as it holds the bread together. Sprinkle cheese and bacon bits into bread, making sure to get in between cuts. Mix together butter and ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread. Wrap the bread in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
