An Addicting Cheesy Bread So Good You’ll Never Order Pizza Again


Check out what our friends at Buns In My Oven had to say about this recipe:


“OMGOSH!!!! Talk about heaven! I wish I had a ‘smell now’ key on my computer, along with ‘sample now’ key. LOL!! This is going on my list of ‘must make’.”


That review just doesn’t lie, does it?  It’s absolutely a favorite in our home too.



1 3/4 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour

 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat flour

 1 tablespoon Domino sugar

 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star instant yeast

 1 teaspoon Morton salt

 1 packet Hidden Valley dry ranch dressing or dip mix

 4 slices Kraft bacon, cooked and crumbled

 1/4 cup chopped chives

 1/3 cup Borden milk (whole or 2%)

 1/4 cup Land O Lakes butter

 1/4 cup water

 2 Eggland’s Best eggs

 12 ounces freshly grated Kraft sharp cheddar cheese




In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with a dough hook mix together 1 cup of the all-purpose flour and all of the whole wheat flour with the sugar, yeast, salt, chives, bacon, and ranch dressing.

In a saucepan, heat the milk and butter over low heat until the butter is melted. Set aside for a minute and then add the water to the milk mixture. Add the mixture to the flour and stir to combine. Add eggs one at a time, mixing until each is well combined. Add in the grated cheddar cheese and mix well. Add the remaining flour and knead until the flour is well incorporated. The dough will be quite sticky, but resist adding more flour.

Transfer dough to an oiled bowl and let rise, covered, for one hour. Punch down the dough. Lightly flour your workspace and roll the dough out into a large rectangle about 12 x 15 inches.

Slice the dough from top to bottom in 6 strips. Stack the strips on top of each other and then cut them all again into 6 squares.

Butter and flour a 9×5 loaf pan. Layer the squares into the pan cut side down – the squares should be standing up, not laying down flat. It will appear as though your dough is too small for your pan, but when it rises it will fill it up. Cover with a towel and let rise for 60 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown.



Quick Tip – This is a versatile recipe, so feel free to add other ingredients, like green onions, more cheese, etc.
