It’s a new year and I am bored with my side dishes. I also don’t like most vegetables so that makes side dishes more complicated. The fact that I’m trying to cut carbs well, let’s just forget that for now. We all know cheddar bacon ranch is a favorite flavor combination in our house so I figured, why not whip up some easy cheddar bacon ranch potatoes to go with the chicken I was cooking. This recipe is so easy and tasty!
You probably have everything you need for this recipe in your pantry: potatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon bits or bacon you can cook and chop, butter, and ranch dressing. Easy peasy, right? I told you it would be. This recipe makes 6 servings so Ron and I had leftovers for a few days which made dinner prep even easier!
