These cheesy ranch potatoes are the perfect side dish for all of your summer barbecues! The tangy ranch dressing and buttery softy potatoes are perfect with the crunch potato chip topping!
I have this little love affair going on with potatoes lately.
It’s kind of awesome, if we’re being honest. I mean, potatoes are not only delicious prepared in just about every manner possible, but they’re also totally affordable and generally just really dang easy to prepare.
Of course, oven roasted potatoes and my crockpot hashbrown casserole are two of my favorites. I mean, they’re both totally easy and they’re both totally packed with flavor. For a more low carb option, try my loaded cauliflower!
I’m a casserole girl at heart, so I thought another potato casserole recipe might be a hit with you guys, too. I mean, it’s hard to go wrong with tender potatoes, tangy ranch, melty cheese, and crunchy potato chips!
We really like these served next to a big ol’ pile of grilled meat. My grilled buttermilk chicken recipe is perfect served with these potatoes. Or keep it even simpler with an Italian beef sandwich for your main course (slow cooker favorite!!) and serve these on the side. Or how about with my turkey meatloaf? They also make a great side dish for holiday dinners – think about how good these would be with a big ol’ ham! Yum!
I think the next time I make these I might sprinkle some bacon in the mix. I mean, it can’t hurt things right? 😉
If you want to make this recipe even easier, you could totally start with a bottle of prepared ranch dressing. I really like making my own for these though. But, you do you! I don’t think you can mess this easy recipe up either way.
