Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
- 16 Rhodes Rolls from the freezer section defrosted
- 1 Cup Ranch Dressing
- 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Cup Bacon Crumbles
- 1 Tablespoon Chopped Chives
- 2 Mini loaves or 1 9x5 Bread Pan
- Nonstick Spray
Spray the bread pans and heat the oven to 350 degrees.
On a counter or silpat, using the palm of your hand, rolling from one side of the palm to the other in a circular motion around the dough, press out the dough into circles. Stretching does not seem to work as well and leads to uneven dough pieces.
Using a spoon, spread a spoonful of ranch on the dough, sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of cheese and 1 tablespoon of bacon.
Top with another pressed out dough circle and repeat until you've got about 4 circles stacked.
Cut the dough into quarters and place in the pan, rounded side up.
Repeat with another stack of dough but sure to leave the top layer plain as you don't want cheese and ranch sticking to the pan. Think of it like a loaf of bread, you want an end on the stack.
Repeat a second time with your second loaf pan.
Allow to rest with a towel over both pans for 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden and no longer doughy. (Some ovens may take up to 40 minutes)
Remove from oven and drizzle with a little extra ranch and sprinkle with chives.
