These potatoes would be best made on the grill but it is too cold and windy for all that today. Instead, I made them in the oven. Of course they weren’t as good but they are still a good, quick side dish. If you have kids, this would be a good recipe for them to help with. Kids should learn about food and it’s preparation so when they are adults they know how to eat flavorful, healthy food. Not food always wrapped in paper.

Bacon Ranch Potatoes

Heavy duty foil
10 baby potatoes, thinly sliced
6 slices of bacon, fried then crumbled
1 packet ranch dressing mix
2 tbsp butter, melted

Create a foil packet. In a bowl, combine the potatoes, bacon crumbles, ranch, and butter. Pour into packet. Bake until tender, about 45 minutes on 400 degrees. (This may be too much time but for some reason my potatoes never seem to cook fast enough.)
