Cheesy Potatoes with Bacon

December 12, 2012

With all the Christmas parties going on, I thought it would be fun to experiment some new recipes on fellow party-goers 😉  This recipe was pretty tasty!  I adapted it from this website that I found on Pinterest. The dream team combo: cheese, bacon and potatoes…’s hard to go wrong 😉

Cheesy Potatoes with Bacon

Cheesy potatoes with Bacon


4 pounds potatoes (unpeeled, washed and cut into small pieces)
3/4 cup ranch dressing (bottled not powder/packet)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (set aside 1/2 cup for topping)
1 package crumbled, cooked bacon
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1/2 brown onion, chopped
1 bunch scallions, chopped
Cooking Spray

Cheesy Potatoes with Bacon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a large bowl, mix ranch dressing, garlic, onions, bacon and cheese. Add in the potatoes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover with foil.  Bake for 70 minutes.  Stir halfway to rotate potatoes.
Remove foil. Raise oven temperature to 450 degrees and stir again.
Add the remaining cheese on top and bake for an additional 15 minutes, until cheese is browned and delicious-looking. Serve with scallions on top for garnish.
