Ranch Roasted Potatoes are the perfect side dish for your next weeknight meal. Oven roasted red potatoes are coated in olive oil and tossed in a tangy ranch seasoning.
These ranch roasted potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes to make on a busy weeknight. They pair perfectly with main dishes like cheeseburgers, steaks, and grilled chicken.
The best part about this recipe is you only need three ingredients to make these hearty and flavorful oven roasted potatoes.
Don’t have any ranch seasoning at home? Check your pantry, you just might have the herbs on hand to make your own! Try my Ranch Seasoning recipe to make your own seasoning blend.
It’s great to have on hand for quick and easy dinners. I love to use ranch seasoning in my Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta – one of my favorite comfort food meals!
What is ranch seasoning?
Not familiar with ranch? Ranch dressing is a popular salad dressing in the united states. The main flavors of ranch include dill, garlic, and onion. The flavor is tangy and fresh, from herbs like parsley and dill.
To make ranch dressing, these herbs and spices are added to a blend of buttermilk and sometimes mayonnaise or sour cream, to create a dressing for salads.
And if tangy ranch flavor doesn’t go with your dinner plans, try my Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes recipe instead. Lightly seasoned and easy to pair with almost any meal!
First, gather your ingredients and preheat your oven to 400 degrees. You’ll also need a parchment lined, or lightly greased, sheet pan.
For this recipe, you’ll need 1 3/4 pounds of small red potatoes, washed and dried. You’ll also need olive oil and ranch seasoning.
If you don’t have red potatoes on hand, any potatoes sliced into cubes will work. If you prefer, you can also remove the potato skins.
First, slice your potatoes into halves or quarters (depending on size), creating bite sized pieces. Your potatoes should be about 1 to 1 1/4″ in size.
Next, add your potatoes to a bowl, then add your olive oil and ranch seasoning. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated.
Pour potatoes onto prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until potatoes are lightly browned and can be easily pierced through with a fork. The cooking time depends on how large or small your potatoes are sliced. The smaller the potato, the less time it will need in the oven.
I like to flip my potatoes halfway through baking for even browning.
