Roasted Ranch Potatoes with Bacon and Cheese | Main Dish Recipe | Dinner Recipe #bacon #roasted #potatoes #cheese #dinner #maindish

Ingredients:
1/4 cup crumbled, cooked bacon
1/2 cup ranch dressing (bottled, not packet)
1 tablespoon dried dill weed
Non-stick cooking spray
2 pounds potatoes (unpeeled, washed and cut into chunks)
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus 1/4 - 1/2 cup more for topping
3 scallions, washed and chopped
Salt
Pepper

Instructions:
First, Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Then, Combine (in a large bowl) the ranch dressing, dill, cheese and bacon.  Add in the potatoes.  Sprinkle in a generous pinch of salt and pepper.  Toss to coat potatoes.
Spoon into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.  Cover with foil.
Bake for 60 minutes.  Stir gently halfway through to get the bottom potatoes rotated to ensure they don't become burnt and to ensure that the middle and top potatoes get a chance to brown.
Remove foil.  Raise oven temperature to 400 degrees.  Gently stir again, as necessary.
Bake for an additional 15 minutes, then sprinkle on additional cheese.  Bake a few more minutes or until everything is gooey, browned and bubbly on top.
Serve with scallions sprinkled on top for garnish.
Great with a dollop of sour cream.
NOTE:  The original recipe from which I adapted this one called for jarred real bacon pieces.  I made the recipe using real bacon (about 5 - 6 slices) that I cooked until crisp and then broke into pieces.  Although I am a firm believer that there is never a substitute for real, fresh bacon, I would think that the kind from a jar would be fine (as long as you don't use imitation bacon bits).
