Cheesy Bacon Onion Ranch Potatoes


Yesterday was Hubby’s birthday and every year on his birthday he usually picks what we’ll be eating for dinner.  This year was a little different.  He wouldn’t pick a dinner! I started bugging him about his birthday dinner weeks in advance.  Finally, last Thursday, he just said, “Make something we’ll both like.” Okay… but I’m pretty sure that’s my goal for every dinner.

Neither one of us could remember when we last bought steak, so I chose that as our meat.  Sides were to include sauteed morel mushrooms from our haul last month, grilled asparagus, popcorn shrimp and these awesome potatoes.

I remembered two and a half hours after dinner that I had forgotten about the shrimp.  It was still in the freezer!  I felt pretty stupid, but Hubby said it didn’t matter; I could make it with dinner tonight.

Speaking of my husband, he barely touched his steak!  That’s because he overloaded his plate with these awesome potatoes.  Here are the ingredients you’ll need:


First take 5 slices of bacon (I used turkey bacon) and slice them into smaller, bite sized pieces.  Toss them into a frying pan and fry ’em up.

Next, wash your potatoes.  Then chop them into bite sized pieces.

Slice your green onions up.

Make a foil bag using two sheets of foil:


Spray both sides of the bag with non-stick cooking spray.

Throw in half your ingredients in this order: potatoes, onions, bacon, ranch mix, cheese.

Once you’ve finished the first layer, add a second with the remaining ingredients.

This was my finished product last night, pre-cooking:


Seal your bag up by folding the opening.  Now they are ready to cook!  You can either throw the bag on a BBQ over medium heat (like I did) for 45-60 minutes or you can pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for that same amount of time.  The choice is yours!


If you made them, let me know!  Did you love them as much as we do?
