Ranch Potatoes

Monday 15 April 2013 - Filed under Recipes

5 to 6 medium-size potatoes. Double this amount if you’re using small new potatoes.
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1 16-oz bottle creamy ranch dressing. You can substitute other favorite dressing flavors for a different taste.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash potatoes. Peel or don’t peel, it’s your choice. Slice them about 1/4 inch thick or chop into pieces. Place potatoes in a 9 by 13 casserole, and sprinkle with seasonings. Drizzle with melted shortening. Pour dressing over the potatoes, and toss to coat well. If you like, before baking, sprinkle with chopped bacon bits, chives, and/or grated cheese.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Serves 8 to 10.
