If you know me, like – AT ALL – you know I love pizza.  I’m talking true love.  The real deal, you follow?  We have weekly pizza night at our house.  Not only do we just plain love pizza but it also makes following a meal plan easier for me.  You will almost always find a frozen pizza or ten in our freezer.  I love knowing I can toss in a pizza anytime company arrives and I’d rather socialize than cook.  I want a full meal deal though so it looks like I have put forth some effort.  I never know when my sister will pop out for the football game {and by pop out, I mean drive 45 minutes because she loves me}.  I recently discovered this awesome, amazing, incredible, delicious, mouthwatering thing called pull apart bread, but as usual, I had to kick it up a notch and make it my own.  Hence – bacon cheddar pull apart bread.  If you aren’t drooling yet, I’ll forgive you, but you will be by the time you get to the end of the post.

AD #TeamPizza #cbiasAnyways, like I said, I love when my sister {and anybody else} pops out to watch some football.  I also like being able to look like a planner by whipping up some party food like a boss.  I figured pizza would be a hit, because, well, it’s pizza – right?!  On a side note – have you seen that saying, “You can’t please everybody, you aren’t pizza” It’s made for me.  I also decided to make some garlic cheddar pull apart bread because I just love watching food disappear in a single moment.  I’m not stopping there though, wait until you see what is up for dessert.  I’m telling you, you can pull together a party for the big game in minutes, I’m not exaggerating.Easy party meals

We decided to try some Red Baron Classic Crust Pepperoni in the freezer section at Walmart since we haven’t had that pizza before and I like having test dummies for the new stuff.  I know that no party is complete without dessert so we also picked up some  Edwards frozen pies and you should too.  Delicious is an understatement.  The last thing to do was make the bread and most of it can be done ahead of time if you want.  Now I was all prepared for game day and since I bought multiples of everything, I was ready for the big game as well.

Pizza and pie in storeOur party food was a hit, no surprise there.  How could it be anything but fantastic with pizza, pies and bread with bacon.  I’m clearly winning as a hostess this time!  One friend who was here commented on the crust of the pepperoni and when I started eating, I realized she was right.  It was crust perfection in every bite.  We were all salivating waiting for the bread to finish cooking and couldn’t wait to dig in.  To top off our game day party, we had a delicious Edwards Frozen Pie.  It was love!  I spent virtually no time in the kitchen and a lot of time watching some football and socializing.  I can’t wait to share the recipe for the bread with you, so keep reading.This bacon cheddar stuffed pull apart bread will be a family favorite recipe.

Cook your bacon.  I prefer to have John cook it because I am a bacon burner but I had to do it myself this time so I tossed it in the oven.

While the bacon is cooking, mix together the butter, cream cheese and garlic powder.  It doesn’t need to be smooth but make sure it’s all mixed together.

After you have gone from one end to the other, turn your loaf a bit and make diagonal lines the opposite way from one end of the loaf to the other.
