Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes Recipe

I have got a delicious side dish you and your family are going to love. Just the name alone will make you drool – Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes. Who can say no to bacon and cheese? Also – this recipe is super easy and what’s better than delicious and easy when it comes to dinner.

These potatoes take about 60 minutes to bake (remember to check them with a knife to see if they’re done) and are the perfect match to chicken, pork chops, or beef.

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes Recipe

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes


  • 5 pound bag of red potatoes
  • 6 slices cooked bacon
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 packet Ranch seasoning
  • 16 oz cheddar cheese


Start by preheating your oven to 350° F.

Melt the butter, and combine with your ranch packet, mixing until well combined.

Cut potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Coat the diced potatoes with your ranch and butter mixture. You can toss them all together right in the baking dish, to save your dishes, or combine in a gallon ziploc bag and shake to coat!

Place all the potatoes into a deep baking dish. I love to use my Pioneer Women set from Amazon that includes two cute ceramic bakeware casserole dishes.


Top the diced potatoes with broken up bacon strips, then coat the top of the dish with lots and lots of cheese!

Bake for 60 minutes or until potatoes are tender. ​

Speaking of beef, these cheesy bacon ranch potatoes would go great with steak. Skip the loaded baked potato – make this dish, sprinkle with green onions and add a dollop of sour cream and it’ll bring this side to a whole new level!

Pair it all with a fresh green salad and you’ll have a dinner where everyone cleans their plate. Just writing about this is making me hungry! I might have to scoop up a small bowl of them out of the fridge – they reheat well in both the oven and microwave and even as leftovers, they don’t lose any of the flavor!

  1. Where do i get ranch packet from i have to try these they look amazing. Cant wait anything with potatoes is always a hit something different will go down a treat.

    • Look in the grocery store right by the salad dressings (towards the end of the aisle, usually). There will be the dry seasoning mixes that you can make up a fresh batch of ranch with. You won’t need to make the ranch, you just want the seasonings!

  2. I am in love with the Pioneer Women range of cookware- the colors are gorgeous and the prints are so comforting- much like this recipe. We always enjoy a hearty side such as this with our dinner!

  3. We have our grandkids for 5 days next week. I know without a doubt that are going to love this recipe. Thanks SO much!!

  4. You had me at Bacon Ranch! I am a huge fan of potatoes. YUM
    Thanks for sharing on Delicious Dishes recipe party!

  5. Hi Janel, I believe I had these once made with regular bottled Ranch Dressing, bacon and cheese. Maybe that’s an alternative to the stick of butter but either way these potatoes are wonderful! Thanks for sharing your version of this very tasty recipe! Blessings, Janet
