Bacon Ranch Cheese Pulls

This is a really easy recipe that you can throw together for a gathering of friends, eat all to yourself, or whatever it is that you do. The one thing that attracted me to this is the bacon. And here's where I initially made a huge mistake.... I used bacon bits. Shock! (anyone who knows me knows its bacon or bust) I had never tried them before this and I will never eat them again. Use REAL bacon. Otherwise it just tastes gross... unless you like bacon bits... but they're gross!! DON'T do it!
Anyhow, easy to make bla bla bla, you are just five quick ingredients to yumminess.

What You'll Need:
1 round unsliced loaf of sourdough bread (you can use other bread too. I used an Italian loaf here)
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese.
Bacon - cooked and crumbled (or gross Bacon Bits if you must)
1/2 cup melted butter
Ranch Dressing

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the bread in both directions. Be sure not to cut through to the bottom though. 
Spread ranch dressing between the cuts and then sprinkle with cheese. 
Sprinkle your real bacon all over and in the bread too.
Pour your melted butter over the bread.
Wrap it all in foil and place the loaf on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Unwrap and bake for another 10 minutes and you are done!
