Bacon Pull-Apart Bread

I decided to change up the usual bread routine a bit. This recipe includes some of my faves: bacon, ranch and bread.  It was simple, easy and delicious!! The kids loved it. 

Bacon Pull-Apart Bread
1 loaf french bread dough (*or recipe below)
12 slices of bacon,cooked partially, drained and diced (you could use low sodium or turkey bacon).
3 Tablespoon olive oil
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Roll out dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. 
Brush dough with 1 Tablespoon olive oil and cut into 1 inch pieces.
Place in a large bowl.  Add bacon, cheese, 2 Tablespoons olive oil (or butter) and dressing packet.
Toss to coat. 
Grease a bundt pan or other pan and layer the pieces inside the pan.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Then cover with foil and bake 5-10 minutes more until lightly browned.

The sad thing is this beautiful tray that the bread is sitting on met it fate tonight....and I am so sad. It was given to me by a good friend, someone I probably will not see again and it meant alot to me. Plus it was probably the nicest thing I owned...BUMMER!!
*You could also use the refrigerated tube biscuits, cut each in half.
**Bread Dough
makes 1 loaf french bread
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoon yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 to 3 cups flour
Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Allow to proof for 10 minutes.
Add oil, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat for 2 minutes.  Add remaining 1/2 cup to 1 cup until you get a stiff dough.
Allow dough to rise until doubled.


  1. This sounds incredible, so flavorful. Gotta love anything with bacon and cheese in it. Definitely comfort food to the max.

  2. What a great idea and sounds SO yummy! I'll be trying this one! So sorry to hear about your tray, but at least its last time being used was for something yummy.

  3. It's 6:55AM and this really caught my attention! Sounds so good:@) Sorry to hear your tray broke, that is a bummer.

  4. That sounds totally delicious! You could even use those Pillbury biscuits in a pinch for this. I am definitely going to try this one.

  5. I am sorry about the tray. This is so sad! At least you have this photo to remember it! The bread looks very easy and crowd pleaser.

  6. The bread sounds delicious! So sorry about your tray! I have a few things like that in my kitchen and I almost hate to use them just in case one of the boys breaks it :(

  7. I'm sorry about your dish. I know how it is to have something you love break. Your bread looks delicious though.

  8. It sounds like a yummy delight of a bread! It's like a savory version of a sweet Monkey Bread....:-)

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
