Heat oven to 350° F/175° C. Place 4 large squares of aluminum foil (shiny side up) on cookie sheets and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray
Place bun in centre of foil. Cut buns, using serrated bread knife, in grid pattern, about 4 rows each way ( lengthwise and widthwise), spacing about ½ -inch between rows. Do not cut all the way through bottom crust. Set aside.
Finely chop jalapenos and bacon bits and mix together. Spoon mixture in between slices in bun- try to get a little into all the spaces.
Slice each cheese slice into 4-6 strips and put into sliced rows. Again, try to get small pieces into all the spaces where the bread is cut.
Combine melted butter and dry ranch dressing in bowl.
Drizzle butter/ranch mixture over buns, dividing between all 4 buns
Pull foil up meeting the ends at the top and sealing as much as possible - try to avoid pressing against the bun.
Bake for 12 minutes, then unwrap and return to oven for an additional 3-5 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and the bun is a light golden brown. Serve with Warm Artichoke Pizza Dip (https://foodmeanderings.com/baked-artichoke-pizza-dip/)
🍽 EquipmentAll you need for this recipe is a baking sheet. However, I do recommend you use a bread knife (affiliate link). It makes cutting bread so much easier.🌡️StoringFridge: Store this pull apart cheese bread in a sealed container for up to 3 days. If you want to make them a day in advance, you're best to prep them, wrap them in foil and put them in the fridge overnight until you're ready to cook them.Reheating: Reheat in the microwave for about 45 seconds-2 minutes (depending on your microwave) or rewrap in foil and warm in oven on 275 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until warmed.My Amazon Recommendations (affiliate links)
