Cheesy Bacon Appetizer
Pat Duran @kitchenChatter
This is made with sourdough bread, sliced in a checkerboard fashion- almost to the bottom, but left in-tack; then covered with crispy Bacon pieces and cheese, then drenched in ranch flavored butter.
This appetizer is bound to make everyone ask for the recipe!So have plenty of copies on hand,lol.

- 1 large
- unsliced round sourdough bread
- 8 oz
- block of cheddar cheese, sliced into thin slices
- 1/4 lb
- bacon, cooked and crumbled, more or less
- 1 stick
- butter, melted
- 1/4 tsp
- each of dried chives, parsley, dill weed, and garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp
- each of onion powder,salt and pepper
To do this slice the bread into 1/2 inch slices, making sure not to cut into the bottom crust. After you make the cuts in one direction, it is easiest to get an extra set of hands to squeeze the loaf together to cut it in the other direction.
Then place the thin slices of cheddar cheese in between the cut slices. Then sprinkle the top with the crumbled bacon. Set aside.
Pour the butter herb mixture all over the bread.
Place in preheated 350^ oven and bake for 15 minutes.
