I’m going to tell you something about myself: I live in a bubble. I don’t watch much TV, and when I do, it’s streaming video with no commercials. I don’t read newspapers or magazines very often, and I listen to music with my phone to avoid interruptions from commercials or DJs. I think once DVR, streaming video, satellite radio, and iPods came along, I became pretty unreachable to advertisers except through online ads since I do all my reading on the Internet.

I wasn’t always this way. I used to watch TV commercials like a normal person, and of course I had my favorites. I’m a big fan of local commercials with ridiculously bad production value, and I also can’t resist a good jingle. One brand that had (and I think still has) awesome jingles is Brummel and Brown. I still hear a lady’s jazzy voice singing about Brummel and Brown being made with yogurt every time I grab the tub out of my refrigerator, and I think that commercial aired almost 15 years ago!

This spread has been my go-to butter alternative for years and not just because of the song. (Maybe it’s a little bit because of the song.) The fact that it is made with nonfat yogurt really does create a wonderfully creamy flavor and texture, and I’m all over the fact that it has 50% less fat and calories than butter. Don’t get me wrong. I always have butter in the house for baking and cooking for my boys since they need the calories (they eat like birds!), but when it comes to toast, biscuits, pancakes, or garlic bread, I always reach for the Brummel and Brown instead of butter. You can’t beat how easy it is to spread right out of the fridge, and it tastes delicious!

Speaking of garlic bread, today I’m bringing you a new butter(ish)y, cheesy, wonderful bread that is especially great served with salads. I’m pleased to introduce you to this Cheddar Ranch Bread!

This is every bit as good as traditional garlic bread, but it’s lighter because it uses spread instead of butter. You are going to love the tanginess the Ranch flavor brings, and you can never go wrong with a little melty cheese on your bread. Now when you grab your tub of Brummel and Brown out of the refrigerator you can think of me! (And this dancing cow…)

I had a question. Do you put the ranch mix on dry, or do you make it as directed on package

Hi, Stacey! You stir the dry mix into the spread or butter, and then spread it onto the bread that way. Thanks for asking!

This looks so delicious!! I love how it’s “outside of the box” in the addition of ranch and dill. Dill is one of my favorite herbs :)

How good is that Brummel & Brown for you tho ? They are now saying, it’s back to BUTTER…..since it is a natural thing…..will have to check on the ingredients on the Brummel & Brown….why not just add yogurt to some butter, I would add some garlic too…as garlic is good for you……and I just read today an article, that said don’t throw garlic away when it starts to sprout, it is much healthier than before………I do not buy MARGARINE of any kind…..and haven’t in years…..I eat butter, but of course I do not eat it every day….I think we need to go back and eat natural food like before….all those processed foods are what is killing people……just saying …..:)

Hi! I normally look for natural products too and still bake with butter and use it to cook eggs, quesadillas, and pretty much anything else in my iron skillet! I do like the taste and convenience of Brummel and Brown though and feel like the benefits outweigh the risks when it comes to spreading half a cup of it on my bread! ;) I like knowing I’m saying 50% of the calories over butter in this case. You could definitely make this recipe with a stick of softened butter instead if you prefer :)

I always let my daughter in law make the garlic bread. I like hers better than mine. BUT I may regain my status as family matriarch if I used this recipe. So I am going to give it a whirl, because there is a barbecue brewing for next Saturday! And you and I are more alike than we might think. We have very similar TV, newspaper etc attitude. In fact my blog this week touches on that in a tongue in cheek way.

Carol, you are going to be the queen of your family when you show up with RANCH bread! You don’t have to give me credit if you want to say you came up with the idea. I can’t wait to hear about your living in a bubble lifestyle too!
