Cheesy Ranch Pull Apart Bread

Well here we are at the end of another year.  I’m left thinking what the heck did I do all year?  Typically I can’t remember what I did last week!  This is why Facebook is so great. 

Late at night I scroll through my photos to see what we’ve been up to.  Lots of after school activities, random kid selfies, puppy pictures and thankfully vacation photos.  I’m quickly reminded how much fun we had.  Then I’m also reminded it’s midnight and I have to work the next day.  People to see, things to do, dinner to make.

Whether you’re partied out or keeping the party rolling I’ve got a great addition for your dinner or snack table.  Cheesy Ranch Pull apart bread can be served at a party with some dips or dressings on the side or set out on a cozy pajama night at home with a something warm on the side.  In the time it takes this bread to bake you can also whip up this delicious Idaho Blue Cheese soup.

Sometimes my husband and I simply make this pull apart bread on a Friday night after a busy week and call it dinner with some wine.

Making the bread is easy and my kids like to help out.  Nothing wrong with stepping aside and letting someone else take over!  Little fingers are quite helpful once you slice part way through the bread to create large cubes.  The kids can then pour in the Litehouse Ranch, Instantly Fresh chives and stuff slices of any cheese you have on hand in between the layers.  It’s a great way to use up the cheese left over from all those party trays.  Everyone loves to rip and tear into the bread once it comes out of the oven!
