My family loves potatoes cooked just about any way. I can bake, fry, mash, roast, grill, or boil and usually everyone likes them. I have had this recipe for quite a while and just had not had the time to try it, but now I have. I fixed these for Sunday dinner at my Nanny’s last week and the response was great. The original recipe called for ranch dressing, but I used Italian and it gave it a little extra kick. Of course, bacon and cheese go great with potatoes.
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup bacon bits
2 lb. small red potatoes, quartered (The package I bought had 1.5 pounds so I added 1 Yukon Gold potato that I had.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 13×9” baking dish with non-stick spray. Mix dressing, cheese, and bacon bits in a large bowl. Add potatoes and toss lightly to coat.
Spoon the potatoes into the baking dish and cover with foil. Bake for 40 minutes. Increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. (I like my potatoes crispy on the outside, so if you are a soft potato fan, leave the heat at 350.)
Remove from oven and enjoy!
