Ranch Roasted Red Potatoes

Side dish time!  This is a simple four-ingredient roasted potato dish from Laa Loosh that was a great accompaniment to our Aidell’s chicken sausages (LOVE THOSE, in case I haven’t mentioned it before…haha).

The ranch packet was a bit more expensive than I thought it’d be…I thought packets like that were about 50 cents, however it was about $1.50 (I bought the generic brand from Fred Meyer).  It was not quite as Ranch-y as I would like.  At first, I only sprinkled about half of the packet on the potatoes, since it seemed like so much, and then I added a bit more, and halfway through cooking, I added the rest of the packet.

Because of this, I was expecting a Ranch Explosion (great visual, right?), but I did not get that.  Sure, it was seasoned and fairly tasty, but far from the flavour explosion I was expecting.  We still ate them all, though!  Now if only I could finish up the 5lb bag of red potatoes…

Good news: This is actually a WW-ish recipe, and 1/2 cup of potatoes is 2 WW points.  Score!

Ranch Roasted Red Potatoes

serves 2

Ingredients:
-2-4 red potatoes (depends on size)
-1 packet Ranch Dressing Dry Mix
-Non fat, olive oil cooking spray
-1tsp salt (I just used a quick grind, cuz the dressing mix is pretty salty)

Directions:
-Cut potatoes and let sit in water for at least 10 minutes, then drain.
-Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
-In a large bowl add potatoes and spray lightly with the cooking spray. Then add the Ranch mix and toss well to fully coat each potato.
-Spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray and spread out potatoes evenly on sheet.
-Bake for about 20-25 minutes, tossing about halfway through, until slightly crisped and fully cooked.
