WHAT ARE THE FOUR-INGREDIENTS IN
DILLY RANCH ROASTED POTATOES?

Simple is best, y’all
Seriously, though! Most every recipe that is “so good!” is simple ingredients, paired well. If you are new to cooking at home, or struggle with creating meals that wow your entire crowd, you need to know a couple of things:
- Good food matters.
- Good ingredients matter.
Something we all need to remember as we head into the cozy season of fall and winter: there is joy in missing out!
You don’t need to go to all the events, do all the things, and be all the places. Gathering with your people around the table is time well spent – and having simple recipes and a game plan to go along with it are super helpful.
The holidays are coming, start planning now, so you can savor the season and enjoy it!
HOW DO I MAKE DILLY RANCH ROASTED POTATOES?
You’ll start by cutting your potatoes in half, and half again. Large enough wedges for a substantial bite.
Next, you’ll plop all the cut potatoes into a big bowl and drizzle in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
Toss the potatoes around, so they’re evenly coated.
Then, sprinkle in a package of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning. Don’t even start with telling me to make my own – it’s not the same.
Stir that up, making sure each potato has ranch on it. <—- The best part!
Now, sprinkle in a tablespoon of fresh chopped dill. If you’re not sure about this flavor, go easy and use less dill. It’s definitely a potent herb, so go with what you prefer.
You’ll roast all of this in 425˚ oven for 18 or so minutes. If the potatoes are small enough, they’ll roast up right quick.
WHAT CAN I SERVE WITH DILLY RANCH ROASTED POTATOES?
TIPS FOR ROASTING POTATOES
You can read all about “Roasting Rules” in this post here.
The number one thing to remember when roasting potatoes, or any veggie with a flat surface, turn all the veggies cut side down, so the flat surface is on the pan. That’s where the roasty-toasty-crispy-crunchy magic happens.
Also, if you ever go to flip your potatoes, and one won’t come up, let it roast a little longer. Eventually, when it’s ready, it will release itself.
KITCHEN ITEMS TO MAKE THIS RECIPE SUPER EASY
WHY ARE TRI-COLORED POTATOES SPECIAL?
- they’re the red, Yukon gold, and Peruvian potatoes in one bag!
- the inside is super buttery soft, has an almost nutty flavor.
- they are small and don’t need as long of roasting time.
WHAT IF YOU CAN’T FIND TRI-COLORED POTATOES?
Tri-colored potatoes aren’t available all the time – they’re usually in the grocery in a mesh bag with the green beans and cucumbers, etc. In Trader Joes, they’re with the other potatoes. If you can’t find them, ask your store!
Julie’s Southwest Grilled Sweet Potatoes are a great alternative to ‘white’ potatoes.
Dilly Ranch Roasted Potatoes are great for game days when you’re huddled around the couch. They pair perfectly with a hearty Sloppy Joe Sandwiches, too!
