Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bombs

Description:

Soft rolls, stuffed with a delicious cheesy, bacon, ranch mixture.


Ingredients:

Bread Dough:

  • 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)
  • tablespoon olive oil

Filling:

  • pound bacon, cooked crispy, diced
  • cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning

Topping

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon dry ranch seasoning

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spay a 9×9 baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add very warm water and oil and mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough (I used a little less than 2 cups). Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Replace the paddle attachment with a dough hook and mix on medium speed for 4 minutes. Alternately this step can be done by hand, if you prefer. Dough should form a smooth, elastic ball. Cover and let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  3. While the dough is resting, prepare the filling. Mix together the mozzarella, cheddar, cream cheese, and ranch seasoning in a large bowl until evenly combined. Set aside.
  4. On a floured surface roll the rested dough out to 14×12-inch rectangle and using a pizza cutter or knife cut into 24 squares. Place 1 tablespoon of the bacon cheese mixture on the center of each square. Pull corners together to enclose filling, pinching to seal. Place in the prepared pan, seam side down.
  5. To make the topping, mix together the melted butter and ranch seasoning in a medium bowl. Brush half of this mixture onto the tops of the dough balls. Reserve the rest of the butter for later.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the dough is lightly golden.
  7. Remove from the oven and brush with the remaining ranch seasoned butter, heating up in the microwave for 10 seconds, if necessary.
  8. Serve warm.
