Cheesy Ranch Potatoes – these are my favorite potato recipe ever! You only need 3 ingredients & everyone who eats it RAVES about how delicious it is!
Cheesy Ranch Potatoes are my absolute favorite potato dish – ever. EVER.
Sometimes I mix in fresh broccoli or cauliflower. Sometimes I make one dish meal of it and add chicken. Have fun, be creative. After all – that’s what cooking is all about.
Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 400 degrees until the potatoes are fork tender – 50-60 minutes.
Remove the foil, and squirt on your favorite brand of ranch dressing & however much cheese you want. And any kind of cheese. I usually use a 4 cheese blend because I buy that kind in bulk and always have it on hand.
Put it back in the oven & cook for 3-5 minutes. Just enough to melt the cheese & warm up the ranch.
Serve immediately.
