Monterey Ranch Bread

I am keeping this post short and simple, like this recipe! 
Remember the bread I made with the BBQ Chicken Soup?  That's right, the intriguing Monterey Ranch Bread.  This bread is so simple to make and a nice change to garlic bread.  At first I was a little skeeved-out at the thought of adding Ranch Dressing to cheese, but guess what, it totally worked!  There is a nice tang and medley of spices that you can't quite put your finger on.  Give it a whirl and ENJOY!

Monterey Ranch Bread
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, or Cheddar Jack Cheese.  Shred the cheese, don't use the stuff in a bag, it just doesn't melt the same way.
  • 3/4 cup Ranch Salad Dressing
  • 4 Bolillo or Hoagie Rolls, split in half lengthwise to make 8 slices
  • 4 TBSP butter, melted
In a bowl, combine the cheese and salad dressing; set aside.
Brush slices of bread with butter. Place on baking sheet. Broil in oven 4 inches from the heat until golden brown. Spread with cheese mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
