I stumbled across this recipe while looking for something different to take to a brunch. Boy, am I glad I did! Everyone asked for the recipe and could not believe it only called for five ingredients. It's the perfect item to bake for an informal get-together.

MY REVIEW

Found this recipe in my new "Fast Fixes with Mixes" TOH cookbook I just bought. I thought the bread had a ton of flavor but a bit too salty for me. I will make this recipe again because who doesn't like bacon! But I will not use the whole pack of ranch dressing and I may try adding more cheese to make it more cheesy. It was a bit dry. Was very easy to prepare and goes well with soup!

Tried this recipe for the first time this morning and my family loved it, I make a pull apart bread for the holidays using the frozen rolls and I always have left over rolls that I don't know what to do with, and I always end up throwing them away, this recipe is a good way to use up the left over rolls. It took longer for it to rise the the recipe stated but I solved that problem by following the quick rise instructions on the package, the next time I make it though I think I will make it up before I go to bed and leave it in the oven to rise and bake it when I get up like I do when I make my other pull apart bread recipe.

I forgot to say that I am always running behind, so I was looking for shortcuts one holiday. I decided to try the pre-cooked bacon bits you can buy now...and they work great! :)

I have made this recipe for years. I found it in one of your magazines and fixed it for a family event. Everyone loves it and they request it every holiday!
