Monterey Ranch Bread


There is nothing like crusty bread slathered with butter and oozing cheese that makes me smile, skip, flap my armsand jump for joy. Is that wrong? This is definitely a recipe to put on your bucket list…it’s so decadent!

Served with roasted chicken and gravy, it was pure comfort food for my sore muscles. Of course I only had one piece…or two.

Make someone smile, serve this tonight!

Melt butter and brush on bread with a pastry brush. Place bread under the broiler until it’s slightly brown and crispy.

Combine cheese and ranch dressing and divide evenly over bread. Place in a 350o degree oven until cheese is melted, about 8-10 minutes.

Sprinkle with parsley once you remove from the oven. Let sit 5 minutes before slicing.

    I can’t tell you how addicted to bread….any kind, any way, shape or form. And the topping just adds to my delight! I could eat it alone or with the roasted chicken, it would satisfy my taste buds just the same. I would never have thought to mix the ranch dressing with the cheese. Even more added flavor! Talk about decadent!!

  9. Cathy, I love the way you cook–unapologetically high calorie and high flavor. Now if I could just learn to match a mile or two walk with each of your recipes. 😉

    I made this using your recipe on the grill last night (there was no way I was turning on the oven in my non-air-conditioned house). I just put a double thick piece of foil on the grill grate … worked perfectly. It was amazing! That ranch dressing really adds a special “zing”. YUM!
