Cheesy Bacon Appetizer

Pat Duran


This recipe from Savory Recipes is so good -this is like the one Rachael Ray made recently.
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.

How to Make Cheesy Bacon Appetizer


  1. Using a sharp knife cut a cross-hatch pattern into the bread.
    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.
  2. Place the bread onto a large piece of foil and curve up the edges to form a packet.
    Then place the thin slices of cheddar cheese in between the cut slices. Then sprinkle the top with the crumbled bacon. Set aside.
  3. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Then all the dried herbs and spices. Mix all together and let it sit for a minute.
    Pour the butter herb mixture all over the bread.
  4. Wrap the foil all the way around the round of bread and place on a baking sheet.
    Place in preheated 350^ oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Unwrap the bread and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and begins to brown.
    Remove from oven and place on serving plate.
    Have your guests tear pieces off to eat.
