Ranch Potatoes Using Baby Red Potatoes – Family Favorite Side Dish
One of our favorite all-time side dishes would have to be these delicious roasted Ranch Potatoes using baby red potatoes.
Tender red potatoes roasted in the oven with Lipton’s Ranch Seasoning sprinkled on top to create a tasty crunchy crust.
We like to drizzle a little Ranch Dressing on top of these ALREADY delicious potatoes. Yum, this is the perfect side dish to bring your family sprinting to the dinner table.
We love side dishes and will heat up left over potatoes the next day. Slice the potatoes even smaller the next day to top your favorite chicken salad.
Your Family will Love these Ranch Potatoes made with Red Potatoes as an Easy and Super-Delicious Side Dish for Dinner.
- 3 lbs. baby red potatoes
- 1 tablespoon Lipton's Ranch Seasoning
- 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray or coat with a thin layer of shortening.
Wash potatoes and dry with a clean cloth.
Cut red potatoes in half, and then each half in half until you have four pieces.
Place baby red potatoes in a bowl and toss with olive oil. Lightly salt & pepper if desired.
Sprinkle potatoes with Ranch Dressing Seasoning and mix well to combine.
Pour potatoes out on to the baking sheet. Arrange potatoes in a single layer.
Bake for 22 - 24 minutes, or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
Wash potatoes before cooking, but make sure they are dried well before baking. Sprinkle baby red potatoes with Ranch seasoning after coating with a small amount of olive oil. This will help the seasonings stick to the potatoes much better.
Try to cut the potatoes equal in size so they cook evenly. Check the roasted potatoes after 20 minutes of cooking.
We love using a thin layer of old fashioned shortening to grease our cookie sheet. The potatoes slide around easily and we swear they get a crispier crust.
If you are using larger chunks of potatoes, you may need a little bit longer cooking time. The smaller the potato pieces, the shorter the time.
