Monterey Ranch Bread

4 Tbsp butter, softened (or buttery spread like SmartBalance)
garlic powder
1 loaf French bread, split in half lengthwise
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
3/4 cups ranch dressing

Spread butter on bread and sprinkle with garlic powder (to taste). Place bread under the broiler until it's slightly brown and crispy.
Combine cheese and ranch dressing and divide evenly over bread. Place in a 350 degree oven until cheese is melted, about 10-12 minutes (longer if you want the bread crispier).
Let sit a few minutes before slicing.
