These indulgent Bacon Ranch Potatoes are creamy, cheesy and flavorful. Seasoned with spicy creole seasoning and ranch dressing then topped with cheddar and bacon for a delectable comfort food.


Foil Pack Bacon Ranch Potatoes

Any warm day we have we love to grill out. I'm always looking for ways to cook everything on the grill so I don't have to turn on my oven or stand over the hot stove. I can throw everything on the grill and let it cook while I sit outside and enjoy the warmth and fresh air. Not to mention it makes clean up quick and simple leaving us with more time to play outside. Cooked in a foil pack you just throw it right in the trash, after you've licked it clean of course.


These Bacon Ranch Potatoes are my favorite accompaniment to BBQ or Cajun grilled chicken. If you want to make these yummy potatoes your main meal, top with pulled pork, BBQ sauce and an extra drizzle of ranch for your own version of BBQ loaded fries. Don't feel like firing up your grill? No problem, you can easily cook them in the oven by laying your foil pack on a cooking sheet and get the same great flavor.



Bacon Ranch Potatoes

 

Serves: 6


Ingredients:

  • 4 med sized russet potatoes, peeled and sliced

  • 1/3 cup ranch dressing

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 Tbsp Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning

  • 1/3 cup shredded cheese

  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled


Directions:

  • Layer 2 pieces of foil on top of each other in opposite directions to create a foil pack. Liberally grease foil, potatoes will stick if you don't grease it well.

  • Wash and evenly slice potatoes in to round discs.

  • In a large bowl combine ranch dressing, garlic powder and Tony's. Add potatoes and mix to coat potatoes evenly.

  • Pour potatoes in to center of foil. Pull edges together and fold to seal tightly.

  • Place foil pack on a hot grill or in a 400 degree oven for 25-30 minutes until potatoes are tender.

  • Carefully open foil pack. Sprinkle on shredded cheese and bacon crumbles. Lightly close foil pack back up and continue heating for an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

  • Serve immediately.
