Sometimes the best recipes are the simplest. These baked ranch potatoes have just 4 ingredients and they’re perfect for dinner; whether it’s for the fam or a party!
My Mama-in-law thought up this recipe and baked it for us on our last visit to California. It seems like every time we visit, I come home with new recipes. I love it! Even my son found these cheesy potatoes hard to resist and he doesn’t usually like potatoes. Family approved :).

This has got to be one of my favorite potato recipes to date! Chopped potatoes smothered in a creamy ranch sauce with bacon and cheese. Talk about a decadent side dish! It’s right up there on my list with my Hashbrown Casserole and these cream cheese Mashed Potatoes!
