Fiesta Party Loaf
I have a long-standing appreciation for Rhodes frozen dinner rolls and bread products. In fact, I have several recipes here on my website featuring their products. My most requested recipe Garlic-Parmesan Pull-Apart Bread gooey Praline-Pecan Monkey Bread and Pull-Apart Cinnamon-Sugar Bread Sticks remain among my top reader favorites. When Rhodes Bread Company invited me to Contribute a recipe to their website, I was delighted and this party loaf was the result.
Pull-Apart Bread with Bacon and Cheese
Pull-apart bread is an absolute favorite of my family's on any day of the year. It's a must-make snack during football season, basketball season or on race day. The variations are endless and thanks to Rhodes frozen white bread dough, it comes together with ease. For a festive twist on Rhodes Party Loaf let's heat things up a little with pepper-jack cheese and cool buttermilk ranch dressing. You'll be amazed at the flavor punch you'll enjoy with such little effort and so few ingredients.
