My husband’s friends often come over to go fishing on our little boat in the water behind our house. It seems like it’s always around dinner time so I usually invite them over for dinner afterwards and sometimes they stay and sometimes they don’t. But I always try to have some items on hand that I can fix quickly to add some bulk and variety to our dinner just in case. That’s how these potatoes came about.

I quickly scanned Pinterest for a red potato recipe to make a filler for our dinner and spotted these Ranch Roasted Red Potatoes. They took less than 5 minutes to prep. They’re roasted with a dry ranch seasoning mix. I’m not much of a potato girl and I loved these perfectly seasoned potatoes. Super easy and inexpensive!

Ranch Roasted Red Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs red potatoes , washed and quartered
  • 1 .4 ounce packet Ranch salad dressing and dry seasoning mix
  • Olive oil cooking spray or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl add potatoes and spray lightly with the cooking spray or drizzle with a little olive oil if you don't have olive oil cooking spray. Then, add in the Ranch dressing mix and salt. Toss well to coat each potato piece evenly.
  3. Line a baking sheet with foil or spray it with non-stick cooking spray. Pour potatoes onto the baking sheet and spread out potatoes evenly.
  4. Bake in oven until potatoes are cooked through, and edges start to turn very dark brown, approximately 20-25 minutes. To check to see if they are done, pierce one of the larger pieces of potato with a fork to see if it is soft.
  5. Serve immediately.
