Cuisine American


  • 2 pounds red or yellow potatoes (unpeeled, washed and cut into chunks)
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing (bottled , not packet)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese plus more for topping (if desired)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon
  • 3 scallions washed and chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine (in a large bowl) the ranch dressing, cheese, and bacon.
  • Add in the potatoes.
  • Sprinkle in a generous 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 burn, 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 about 15 more mins or until everything is gooey, browned and bubbly on top.
  • Serve with scallions sprinkled on top for garnish.
