Mini Potatoes (I used 3 pounds for 7 people and there were some left over.)
1.5 Ranch Seasoning Dip/Dressing packets
1/2c Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 stick of Salted Butter - Cubed (Margarine doesn't work the same)
1.5 Tbsp Olive or Veggie Oil
*Please Note: We use Dutch Ovens around here but you could easily but them in a foil packet and put them on the grill or in a baking dish and put them into the oven.
First slice all of your baby potatoes to a similar size. I cut most of them in half but if they were bigger I cut them into thirds. Place them into the Dutch Oven. As for potatoes I used Gemstone potatoes which we get at our Hyvee. They come in bags like this and they are baby reds, yellows, and purples (Who knew?! Purple potatoes, they're delish!)
|This is the package that the potatoes came in. I used 2 bags.|
Now add the Ranch seasoning packets. This can be adjusted to your taste. I like mine ranchy (if that's a word) so I used 1.5 large size packets. Stir Ranch seasoning around so it coats potatoes. Then sprinkle the butter cubes around the pot. (You can sprinkle a little bit of the cheese on now if you'd like)
*If using a Dutch Oven use top and bottom heat for about 20-25 minutes and then remove from bottom heat (but keeping top heat) for about 5-10 minutes or until potatoes are done.
*If using a foil packet on the grill put on indirect heat for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are done.
*If making in the oven: Set oven to 375 degrees and place covered baking dish in oven for about 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are done.
When potatoes are 5 minutes from being done sprinkle cheese on top and let cheese melt and get golden.
Enjoy and Happy Father's Day!
