Roasted Potatoes Recipe

Crisp roasted potatoes are a fabulous side dish to any meal. Adding cheese and chives just makes them more awesome.


  • 2 1/2 pounds yukon gold potatoes, or red potatoes, cut into 1 1/2" cubes - unpeeled
  • 6 ounces bacon
  • 3 tablespoons ranch seasoning
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
To Garnish:
  • sour cream
  • chives


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. Line a baking sheet with sides with foil. Set aside.
  3. Placed cubed potatoes in large pot.  Fill pot with water covering potatoes by one inch.  Cover pot and bring to a boil. Remove lid and turn water to medium low, simmering for 8-10 minutes. 
  4. While potatoes are boiling, chop bacon and place on lined baking sheet. Place in oven for 7 minutes to begin cooking the bacon.
  5. Drain potatoes well and transfer them to same baking sheet as the bacon, coating them on bacon drippings. Sprinkle potatoes with your ranch seasoning evenly and drizzle olive oil over potatoes.
  6. Place back in oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  7. When potatoes are done, remove from oven. Season with salt and pepper to taste and then sprinkle evenly with cheese. Place them back in the oven until cheese is melted, 3-4 minutes.
  8. If desired, garnish with chives and sour cream.
