Planning and making dinner every night is exhausting. Decisions about meat selection, which vegetable to use tonight, and needing a potato recipe… because how-many-different-ways-can-I-cook-a-potato woes are a daily struggle. Then they keep wanting dinner. Every. Single. Night.
Easy Ranch Roasted Red Potato Recipe
Here is an easy recipe to add to your how-many-different-ways-can-I-cook-a-potato recipe list. It uses just a few ingredients that you probably already have in your spice cabinet. Quick prep and no-touch cooking (the standard here in HappyPlace!) will make this a staple in your monthly meal planning!
- red potatoes, cubed
- 4T butter
- 2T Ranch seasoning
- 1t Garlic powder (or Garlic salt)
- 1t Onion powder (or Onion salt)
- 1/4c Grated Parmesan (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375
- Grease 9x11 pan
- Cube enough red potatoes to cover the bottom of the pan
- Sprinkle seasonings over cubed potatoes
- Add butter in sections over the potatoes
- Baked, uncovered for 30-45 minutes (for crispy potatoes). Check for desired crispness then remove when brown
- Sprinkle with grated Parmesan (optional) and serve!
Keep an eye on cooking time for the perfect level of crispness. If you like a really crisp potato, leave in the oven even longer but watch for burning. All ingredients in this Ranch Roasted Potato Recipe can be adjusted to taste. I often add a sprinkle of parsley or season salt on top before cooking for extra flavor (and to switch it up). This potato recipe is even more delicious when smothered in shredded cheese just after you pull it out of the oven. Yum! Add your own flare!
