My cheesy bacon ranch potatoes are one of my favorite easy potato side dishes, and once you try them you’ll realize what you’ve been missing! Chunks of potato are baked until fork-tender then mixed with an irresistible combination of sour cream, cheese, and crispy bacon- it’s as delicious as it sounds!
Prep the potatoes. Transfer 3 pounds of cubed russet potatoes to a baking dish. Peeling is optional. Pour olive oil over the top and sprinkle with dried minced onion and salt and pepper. You can add more or less depending on your taste. Toss until everything is coated and evenly distributed. Then, cover the dish with aluminum foil.
