Besides spending time with my family, eating during the holiday season is my favorite activity. I mean, who doesn’t like to walk into a home bursting with the aroma of comfort food and desserts? If you’re headed to a holiday party, don’t show up empty handed. Holiday parties (or any party for that matter) are a drag without great food. When food at an event is lackluster, I can easily become hangry (hungry+angry). Bacon Ranch Potatoes is a great holiday appetizer or side dish for your next party.
Bacon Ranch Potatoes Recipe
I’m a meet and potatoes kind of girl, so this simple recipe is one of my new favorites! I recently made it for my daughter’s fourth birthday party and our party guests devoured them. If you have 35 minutes, you have plenty of time to cook up this dish.
Some of my favorite items are included in this dish–potatoes, cheese, bacon, and ranch. I honestly can’t say I have ever met anyone who didn’t like these foods, probably because they are found in many comfort food dishes.
I’m not a pro when it comes to cutting potatoes; luckily, the taste isn’t effected. Cook these babies, toss ranch on them and they are halfway to being a party in your mouth.
Throw the dish in the oven and in half an hour you have a delicious dish that will keep your guests in the kitchen.
- 1 lb red potatoes
- 1/4 cup ranch dressing
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup bacon* pieces
- 1/2 bunch green onion
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare bacon by cutting it in small pieces and cooking them in a small skillet. Drain and set aside. Wash red potatoes and cut into bite size pieces and leave skin on. Place in large pot and boil for 10 minutes. Drain potatoes and place in large bowl. Toss and coat potatoes with ranch. Place potatoes in baking dish, making sure they are evenly placed in the pan. Cover potatoes with cheese and 3/4 of the bacon (leave some for topping later) Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle bacon and green onion on top. Serve warm.
- *I used turkey bacon.
