Ranch Potatoes

I've made this Ranch Potatoes recipe for years and it's always a crowd pleaser!  How can you go wrong with ranch, bacon and cheese! This potato side dish goes well at any gathering from a summer BBQ to Thanksgiving dinner.

Before the final 20 min in the oven

Final dish with melted cheddar cheese

Ranch Potatoes

  • 8 large red potatoes
  • 1 cup ranch salad dressing (I use Hidden Valley)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, divided
  • ¼ cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  1. Cut potatoes into cubes.  Place in a large saucepan.  Cover with water.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Boil until tender, about 6 minutes; drain well.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Meanwhile, combine salad dressing, sour cream, ½ cup cheddar, bacon, salt, garlic, onion in a large bowl.  Add potatoes; stir well.
  4. Spoon potato and bacon mixture into an 8x10 baking dish.  Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake potatoes until bubbly, about 20 minutes.
