AN EASY ROASTED POTATO RECIPE
Want to get kids to eat more veggies, put some ranch seasoning on it. Ha! Honestly, if it’s one thing I have learned as a parent, it’s that either ketchup or ranch dressing usually makes everything taste better for kids when they’re first learning how to eat veggies. Maybe it’s just fun to dip your food!
TIPS FOR MAKING RANCH-FLAVORED ROASTED POTATOES
- This can be made with a HOMEMADE RANCH SEASONING
- White or yellow baby potatoes or even diced russet potatoes will work with this recipe.
- If you like the sound of this recipe, try my RANCH SMASHED POTATOES for a twist!
- Got an air fryer? These cook up beautifully in the air fryer at 400f degrees (not preheated) for about 20-25 minutes
- Try adding garlic, onions, broccoli and cauliflower to this and it’ll still turn out amazing!
- Switch out the ranch dressing for Italian dressing for variety!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)
- small red potatoes
- vegetable oil (or canola or olive oil)
- ranch dressing mix
HOW TO MAKE RANCH ROASTED POTATOES:
Preheat oven to 450F degrees. Cut up the potatoes. My red potatoes here were pretty small so I just cut them in half. If yours are larger, you will want to cut them up in quarters.
Place cut potatoes in a gallon-size zip top bag. Add in oil.
Close the top and squish the potatoes around to coat them all in the oil.
Then toss in the dry Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix.
Squish again to coat all the potatoes with that lovely ranch goodness.
Then spread them out evenly them on an ungreased baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes.
Now, since my potatoes here were small, it only took about 20 minutes in the oven. So just keep an eye on them after about the 15 minute mark so you don’t over-cook them. They are ready when they are golden brown and fork tender.

The best and easiest
I have a large container of Hidden Valley dry powder. Do you know how many spoonfuls a one ounce package contains?
Hi Peggy! It would be about 3 tablespoons 🙂
I thought I had ranch dressing in the cupboard when I planned to make these potatoes. After I had pre-heated the oven I discovered what I did have was a packet of Italian dressing … so I just used that and the potatoes were delicious 🙂
Love it!! Thank you Alison for letting me know how they turned out!!
These are amazing and super simple! Thanks for the great recipe!
Ranch dressing is also how I get my husband to eat his veggies! These potatoes look yummy!
I do this same exact thing, but use Lipton onion soup packets instead of the ranch dressing packets. They are very yummy and a family favorite. I will definitely be trying this version – thanks!
