Cheesy Ranch Potatoes
Crispy potatoes dressed with herby, tangy ranch dressing sounded like a hit. But first we had to get the ranch right.
Why This Recipe Works
Our aim with this recipe was to pack roasted potatoes with a big punch of classic ranch flavor. We began by tossing creamy Yukon Gold potato chunks with a special ranch seasoning blend before roasting them. To add further interest, we sprinkled the just-roasted potatoes with shredded cheddar cheese, some fresh dill, and a big pinch of cilantro—the heat from the cooked potatoes melted the cheese and helped bloom the flavors of the herbs. We finished the dish by whisking together a creamy ranch sauce, which we drizzled over the roasted potatoes right before serving.
