Hot Cheesy Party Ring  

As prepared by Simply Scratch

When I throw a party it's all about the food.


My favorite part of party planning is of course the menu planning. I'll serve anything from a simple cheese and fruit platter to a warm or cold dip with an assortment of chips and toasted bread and my personal favorite, meatballs with those cute frilly toothpicks. However, sometimes impromptu gatherings happen. And it's always good to have an ace in your back pocket (like a Hot Cheesy Party Ring), just in case you find yourself in a situation of guests dropping by and zero time to plan.

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring - ingredients

A few things you should always have on hand it is cheese, bacon, green onions and a roll of Pillsbury’s French Loaf in the fridge. Those things together can make magic happen... all in about 30 minutes.

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring  - mist cooking spray on Bundt pan

Grab your Bundt pan and generously mist the pan with a non-stick cooking spray and scoot it off to the side.

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring - dough ring

Now just lightly dust a flat surface with flour, pop and unroll a can of Pillsbury French Loaf dough and roll it out and form into a ring. So incredibly easy, right?

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring  - bake bread and prep stuffing

Place the dough into the greased Bundt pan and pop it into a preheated 375 degree oven for 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Now would be the time you could quickly shred up your favorite cheese, slice up two green onions and dice and crisp up 4 strips of thick slab bacon.

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring - let bread cool

Let the bread cool for 5 minutes before inverting the Bundt pan on to a clean surface.

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring - cut bread

Once the bread has had a chance to cool, use a serrated knife and slice the bread into pieces. Don't cut all the way through, just far enough that you have room to stuff the bread with lots of goodies. If your Bundt pan is more smooth on top, go ahead and get creative cutting X's around the ring!

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring - stuff with cheese

Begin by stuffing with some grated cheese. I'm using 4 ounces of both shredded mozzarella and mild cheddar. I prefer to shred by hand, instead of the pre-bagged, because it will melt much, much better.

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring - stuff the bread

Continue to stuff the bread with cheese, bacon and the sliced green onions. It doesn't have to be perfect, just stuff it in there.

 

Hot Cheesy Party Ring - back in the oven

Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet that is lined with either parchment paper or a Silpat. Pop it back into the over for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted throughout.

Hot Cheesy Party Ring

Serve this fun, hot cheesy party ring at your next shindig with a bowl of your favorite dip in the center and your guests can break bread and dip!

Enjoy!
