‘The Pioneer Woman’ makes a delicious Bacon Ranch Cheesy Bread

On the latest installment of The Pioneer Woman, the celebrity chef made a delicious Bacon Ranch Cheesy Bread. The easy recipe was posted on the Food Network website which allotted about one hour in total to make the bread. Drummond started off by adding Monterey Jack, Cheddar, parsley, bacon, and onion whites in a bowl where she mixed it all together.

The recipe also calls for a sourdough loaf which the star cut into strips in one direction but not cutting all the way through. Once that was cut, she rotates the bread 90 degrees to cut from the other direction which yields small squares across the loaf.

Once the bread is cut up, Drummond stuffed the cheese mixture between the rows. A mixture of melted butter and ranch dressing would then be drizzled on top and would be wrapped in foil to be baked for 25 minutes. Once it’s all baked, green onions were sprinkled on top.

Fans call out Ree Drummond for missing an ingredient

After the recipe aired on The Pioneer Woman, a clip of the show was posted on the Food Network’s official Instagram account. Fans then had the opportunity to reply with their comments about the recipe. Some fans are even adventurous enough to replicate what Drummond made on TV and share their results. However, on this particular post, many of the replies were focused on the missing of one particular ingredient.

“Should’ve used garlic and/or chives instead of green onions. Both would’ve paired well with the butter,” a fan noted.

“Think I’d add lots of garlic in the butter,” a viewer added.

“The only thing missing is garlic!” an Instagram user commented.

Although for some fans the garlic was missing, other viewers thought the recipe was perfect and couldn’t wait until they tried it out themselves.

“Oh yummy, love everything about this cheesy bread recipe,” another fan mentioned.

“Awesomeness!!! This is my kind of slammer,” another viewer said.

“OMG! This looks delicious!” another Instagram user added.
