Roasted Ranch Potatoes with Bacon and Cheese

Find it on Pinterest

Cooks Note: I couldn't resist making these, the description alone had my mouth watering. They are easy to make, but you have to have a lot of time, so advance planning is key. The only thing I would change is to add some more cheese and maybe a little olive oil, (original recipe shown below) since it could have been a little juicier. But aside from that, these were a crowd pleaser and a "Make again" as my family calls it. Enjoy!


  • 2 pounds potatoes (unpeeled, washed and cut into chunks)
  • ½ cup ranch dressing (bottled, not packet)
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for topping (if desired)
  • ¼ cup crumbled, cooked bacon
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
  • 3 scallions, washed and chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black ground pepper, to taste
  • Non-stick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix together, in a large bowl, the ranch dressing, dill, cheese and bacon.

Add in the potatoes.

Sprinkle in a pinch of salt and pepper.

Toss to coat potatoes.

Spoon into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

Cover with foil.

Bake for 60 minutes.

Stir gently halfway through to get the bottom potatoes rotated so they don’t become burnt and to
ensure that the middle and top potatoes get a chance to brown.

Remove foil.

Raise oven temperature to 400 degrees.

Gently stir again, as necessary.

Bake for an additional 15 minutes, then sprinkle on a little more cheese, if desired.

Bake a few more minutes or until everything is gooey, browned and bubbly on top.

Serve with scallions sprinkled on top for garnish.
