Servings: 8–10


  • 1 lb. baby red new potatoes
  • ½ stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 packet Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dips Mix
  • 1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese (shredded, divided)
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 3 tbsp. parsley, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. chives, chopped
  • 4 slices turkey bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. 1. Place potatoes into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 3–5 minutes until par cooked. Once cool enough to handle, carefully slice 5-8 slits, about 1/8-1/4 inch thick, in each potato almost to the bottom.
  2. 2. In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, half of the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dips Mix and half of the cheese.
  3. 3. Spread mixture in between each slice of potato. Top with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake for 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender and crispy on the outside.
  4. 4. Meanwhile, mix the remaining Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dips Mix with the sour cream.
  5. 5. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly, and garnish with parsley, chives and crumbled turkey bacon. Dollop Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dips Mix sour cream on top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! The recipe was not accurate, prep time was about an hour, cooking time should be more than 15 minutes even after the "parbake" in the microwave. Very disappointed to take this to a Super Bowl party and it was not fit to eat
