Ranch Garlic Bread- Garlic Bread has even more flavor when seasoned with a little ranch seasoning. So delicious!
The bread gets golden and crispy on the outside and is wonderfully buttery in the middle. The flavor of the ranch seasoning combines with the garlic and Parmesan cheese, plus some bacon bits to create the most incredibly flavored garlic bread ever.
I like to use a combination of butter and mayonnaise to give the garlic bread maximum flavor.
Quick and Easy To Make
To make this Ranch Garlic Bread, form a paste by mixing together the butter, mayonnaise, Ranch seasoning, garlic, bacon bits, and Parmesan cheese. Cut the bread in half lengthwise and spread the paste on the cut sides. Bake for about 15 minutes then broil for a minute or two. Sprinkle with parsley if desired.
Make It Cheesier
This recipe has a little Parmesan cheese in it. If you want it cheesier, add some shredded mozzarella cheese or shredded Colby Jack cheese.
To add a little heat to your garlic bread, try adding 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the butter paste.
