This delicious appetizer for a crowd is certain to be the highlight of game night!
1 (16- to 18-ounce) round loaf Italian or sourdough bread
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter melted
1 teaspoon dry ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup (about 5 slices) cooked chopped thick-cut bacon
1/4 cup jarred jalapeño peppers, chopped
10 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F. Place two (24-inch) pieces aluminum foil, crossing one over the other, on flat surface.
Cut bread, using serrated knife, in grid pattern, spacing about 1-inch between rows. Do not cut through bottom crust. Set aside.
Combine melted butter and ranch dressing in medium bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except parsley; mix well.
Place loaf in center of aluminum foil pieces. Spoon cheese mixture into cut areas of bread. Wrap foil loosely around bread. Place onto ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 30 minutes. Pull back foil; continue baking 5-10 minutes or until loaf is golden brown and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
Serve immediately. Pull out individual bread pieces, using tongs or 2 forks and reaching down into loaf to include filling and bread.

I have made this twice in the last 30 days. Believe it or not, as a lunch. I used individual bread bowls and divided the "stuffing" in half (upping the bacon to an entire package!) Also tweaked to use dry ranch dip mix instead of ranch dressing, left out the jalapenos, and subbed about 1-1/4 C shredded 3 cheese blend instead of the American cheese. Served in rimmed soup bowls.
This recipe was FANTASTIC. The flavor was delicious and everyone at our party just loved it. A real keeper.
