Steps (5)

  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. 2
    Pierce potatoes with a fork, place a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 3 to 5 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, carefully slice 5 to 8 slits, about ⅛- to ¼- inch thick, in each potato almost to the bottom.
  3. 3
    In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, half of the dips mix and half of the cheese; spread mixture in between each slice of potato. Top with remaining cheddar cheese and bake for 15 minutes or until tender and crispy.
  4. 4
    Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the remaining dips mix with the sour cream.
  5. 5
    Allow potatoes to cool slightly, and garnish with parsley, crumbled turkey bacon, and a dollop of the sour cream mixture. Serve warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Potatotizer I have made this several times and is a great hit with the family. My daughter came home from school the other day and had made this and was waiting for me for after school and work snack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect appetizer! gave me a free sample of simply ranch which started me looking for recipes using ranch dressing. The loaded mini bake potatoes are great. The cheese, spices, turkey bacon really compliment the potatoes. Crispy on outside and soft inside with the sour cream and ranch topping is great!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs adjustments Wouldn't use red potatoes again. Also the cooking time was off and I don't believe they turned out very well

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
