We love having potatoes for breakfast. On Saturday we like to have a real breakfast...eggs, potatoes, bacon/ham, fresh garden salsa, coffee, orange juice and maybe something sweet(not always). I like making these potatoes first as it takes about 4o-45 minutes in the oven to bake. It gives me plenty of time to set up the table while they are baking as well as make the rest of the menu. I like to use these potatoes as well in egg burritos. These potatoes are versatile .... they do very well as a side dish for lunch or dinner.


2 large russet potatoes; diced
2 tbsp olive oil; (up to 3 tbsp)
1 tsp dried dill or parsley
1 tsp paprika
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
tip: you can make them spicy if you like by adding
1 tsp chile flakes, or to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Preheat oven to 425 deg.

Peel and wash potatoes. Dice potatoes in small cubes (about 1/2 inch thick).

Place in a medium bowl. Add olive oil and toss to coat all potatoes. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss to mix.

Place potatoes in a single layer in a 13x9 pan. Use parchment paper for easy cleanup ...and so that the potatoes do not stick to the bottom of the pan.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Enjoy!

Roasted Ranch Potatoes with Bacon and Cheddar Cheese

A variation on this recipe

"Think of a great loaded baked potato flavor with the extra zing of ranch dressing and then roasted potatoes that are slightly crispy as opposed to fluffy and baked. These potatoes make a great side dish with most anything, and just perfect for a barbeque or pot luck dinner." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

I also doubled the spice mix

Little bland. I jazzed them up with 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 2 tsp my special spice mix, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp paprika. That did just the trick!

Awesome recipe! I've cooked these twice now. The first time was in foil on the BBQ. They were so perfectly done with a nice crunch. The spices were awesome! This time I'm doing them in foil in the oven. Very easy. Thanks for sharing

Great recipe! I added 1TB hidden valley ranch mix and skipped salt and pepper. Only took 20min at 400 in gas convection oven.
