“This bread has become a favorite in my house. I get more requests for it than I do for garlic bread. And there are never any leftovers of this when I make it.”
1 loaf

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 loaf Italian bread or 1 loaf French bread
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet dry ranch dressing mix
  • 12 cup parmesan cheese
  • 14 cup butter


  1. Slice bread almost whole way through being careful to still leave it connected at bottom of loaf.
  2. Put bread on a sheet of aluminun foil large enough to fold up around the loaf.
  3. Melt butter, add the remaining ingredients to the melted butter and mix.
  4. Spread this mix in the slices in the bread.
  5. I use a tablespoon and put one spoonful between each slice.
  6. There will be a little of the butter mix left, I usually pour this over the top of the bread.
  7. Wrap aluminun foil up around sides of loaf, leaving the top exposed.
  8. Cook for 10 minute on 350, this is just long enough to make the top and bottom crispy and warm the bread up.
  9. Enjoy!
