I absolutely love potatoes and I also love Ranch Dressing, so putting them together seemed like a win-win, and it was! This especially made sense because I am always trying to find new ways to make them, so we aren’t eating mashed potatoes every night. This recipe is delicious, quick and easy.
They were even a hit with my picky eater. I am so glad she is getting to the age that she will try almost anything, and she has been liking a lot more foods than she used to. That is really good news because I am always trying new dishes. I used to cook two meals some nights (yes, I am that kind of mother,don’t judge) and while I still have (choose) to do that occasionally, it is becoming fewer and far between.
These are the ingredients you will need.
These are the prepared potatoes, ready to go into the oven.
Roasted Ranch Potatoes
This is a flavorful recipe for roasted potatoes using Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix.
- 1 1/2lb baby red, gold or yellow potatoes (or you can use larger red, gold or yellow potatoes cut into bite-sized pieces)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix (1 ounce)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
||Preheat oven to 425 degrees. |
||Prepare sheet pan; lightly coat with oil or cooking spray or line with aluminum foil (I use Reynolds nonstick foil). |
||Spread potatoes on prepared pan in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil then add the Ranch Dressing, salt and pepper; gently toss to evenly coat. |
||Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until brown. |
The potatoes will roast more evenly if they are all about the same size. Some of mine were so small that I left them whole, others I cut in half because they were quite a bit larger than the others. If using larger potatoes just cut them so they are all about the same size. You could also use Russet potatoes but you will have to increase the roasting time.
