Ingredients (9)

  • 5 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • pounds baby red-skinned potatoes (halved or quartered, if larger)
  • ½ pound bacon
  • ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • ½ cup pepper jack cheese (shredded)
  • ½ bunch scallions (thinly sliced, to garnish)
  • hot sauce (to serve)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium heat. In a small bowl add the melted butter and the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Mix and mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 2
    In a large bowl add the potatoes, drizzle with the melted butter and toss to combine. Divide the potatoes between 4 pieces of foil. Close the ends of the foil and place on the grill. Cover the grill and allow to cook for 35–40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, flipping the packets often.
  • Step 3
    In the meantime, line a plate with paper towels. Place bacon in a cold sauté pan and heat over medium heat. Allow to cook until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp, about 7-9 minutes. Remove the bacon to the paper towel-lined plate and crumble into small pieces. Set aside.
  • Step 4
    Once tender, open the packets, evenly sprinkle with cheddar cheese and pepper jack cheese. Close the lid of the grill and allow the cheese to melt, about 5 minutes. Remove the packets from the grill and top with bacon and scallions. Serve hot with hot sauce!

    Tip: You can cook your bacon on the grill by heat a cast iron pan on the grill just as you would use a stove!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty Side or Appetizer! I tried this recipe last weekend and it certainly did not disappoint. Almost everyone loves bacon, cheese & potatoes, but when you add the Hidden Valley Original Ranch Seasoning Mix to the recipe, it changes it from good to deliciously yummy! There is just something about your ranch seasoning mix that makes most anything taste better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds delicious This recipe sounds so good and i can't wait to try it out. I would add sour cream as a topping so they would be loaded ranch potatoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds yummy I would use pepper jack on my husband's and just double the cheddar on mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not something I would make While this recipe would probably be great for most people, we do not eat bacon and find pepper jack cheese to hot for us. I marked it average as I figure a lot of people would like this recipe. As for the Hidden Valley seasoning product, great, just not this particular recipe.
