Roasted Cheddar Ranch Potatoes!

 
 
These "Roasted Cheddar Ranch Potatoes" couldn't be easier, but the flavor it just wonderful.  They turn out perfectly seasoned and go with just about any main dish.   Also, for those folks who say they don't like ranch dressing (I can't imagine myself), just don't tell them and they will never know it's on there.  Here is what you need for these yummy potatoes:

5-6 medium size potatoes, unpeeled, washed and diced in fairly big chunks ( I used Yukon Gold's but any potato with a nice skin will work)
1/2 cup prepared Ranch dressing of your choice
dash of hot sauce (optional)
seasoned salt
black pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup real bacon bits or crisp cooked bacon, crumbled
1/4 cup sliced green onions or chives (optional)

Mix the ranch dressing with a few dashes of hot sauce.  If you like milder flavor, skip the hot sauce.


Toss the potatoes with the ranch dressing in a mixing bowl until they are all covered with dressing.   They don't need to be swimming in it, just a light coating.

Spread the potatoes in a baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.  A  9"x13" baking dish works well.
Sprinkle lightly with seasoned salt and black pepper (fresh ground is nice on these).
Sprinkle the cheddar cheese and bacon over the top.

 
Cover tightly with foil and place in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour.  Halfway through the cooking time, take the foil off and stir the potatoes from the bottom.  Make sure none are left stuck to the pan and turn them over a little to ensure they all cook evenly. 
Leave the foil off and put back in the oven for 30 minutes. 
If you like them really cheesy, sprinkle an extra cup of cheese on them the last 10 minutes.
Once out of the oven, sprinkle with the green onions or chives.

  6. This sounds absolutely delicious, and certainly something that will end up on my table soon! By the way, I hate when people make changes to a recipe; that makes it a different recipe altogether. That being said, the ONLY thing I would omit from this recipe, for me and mine only, is the salt. With the cheese, and the bacon, it would be just salty enough; otherwise, everything else stays. YUMMY!!
