Easter is fast approaching. I can’t believe how it snuck up on me this year! You are all probably much more on top of it than I am and already have your Easter menu planned out. Ham seems to be pretty traditional for most people although I personally prefer a pork tenderloin but whether we have ham or pork tenderloin we have to have some type of cheesy potato! That is essential.

This year we will be using a new recipe – one for Roasted Bacon Cheesy Potatoes. How could anything with cheese and bacon not be amazing. Well these potatoes are amazing!

Because I am really not a potato girl (texture issues), in order for me to eat potatoes they need to be cut fairly small and cooked until they are crisp. Also covering them with bacon and cheese will get me to eat them. I will eat Roasted Bacon Cheesy Potatoes!

Roasted Bacon Cheesy Potatoes

I used regular russet baking potatoes but I think this recipe would work great with red potatoes or yukon gold also. I used Bacon Ranch dressing along with cheddar cheese, pepperjack cheese and pepper bacon! Of course you could always use regular ranch dressing, regular bacon and regular Monterey jack cheese but I love the little bit of extra flavor you get with Bacon Ranch and extra pepper in the bacon and the cheese.

It is all mixed up together in a bowl and then put into a buttered 9 x 13 pan.

Roasted Bacon Cheesy PotatoesCover the pan with foil and bake them for 60 minutes. Half way through gently turn the potatoes in the pan so they are roasting and browning evenly. After an hour remove the foil and increase the temperature to 400 degrees and cook for another 15 minutes until brown and bubbly. The last five minutes sprinkle on some extra cheese and then I turned on the broiler and put them under the broiler for 3-4 minutes to let the cheese melt and brown.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    This looks delicious. Can someone please tell me what bacon ranch dressing is,not familiar with it in South Africa. Is it mayonnaise based? Can’t wait to make it with our barbecue

    These look much more interesting than a plain baked potato. I think I’ll try it. Thanks.
