Recipe from KRAFT
HEAT oven to 350ºF.
USE serrated knife to make vertical cuts, 1 inch apart, in top of bread loaf, being careful to not cut through to bottom of loaf. Turn bread 1/4 turn; repeat cuts.
CUT each cheese slice into thirds; press into cuts in bread along with the bacon. Place loaf on large sheet of foil.
MIX remaining ingredients; drizzle over bread. Wrap bread with foil; place on baking sheet.
BAKE 25 min. or until heated through, unwrapping bread after 15 min.
Enjoy this warm, cheesy bread but remember to keep tabs on portions.
