• 1 loaf french bread
  • Ranch salad dressing
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Bacon (cooked and crumbled)

This is a quick and easy dinner that we love at our house.  In fact it’s so easy, there really isn’t a precise recipe for it.  Just use any amounts of ranch dressing, cheese and bacon that you feel like using that day.  Depending on what I have in my fridge, I will either use the pre-cooked and crumbled bacon that I buy at Costco, or I’ll cook my own and crumble it.  Either one works great.  It doesn’t get any easier than this!  I also prefer using homemade Ranch Dressing that I make using the Hidden Valley packets.  I just think homemade tastes a lot better than the bottled stuff.


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice the french bread horizontally.  Spread both sides with ranch dressing, cover with grated cheese and sprinkle crumbled bacon on top.  Place on a cookie sheet and cook until bread begins to brown on edges and cheese is melted.
