  • Outdoor Barbecue Grill


  • 4 large Potatoes scrubbed and cut into bite sized pieces (we keep the potato skins on)

Ranch Mix:


Optional Topping Ideas:


  • After potatoes are washed and cut, combine the ingredients for the ranch mix. 
  • Use just enough of the mix to thoroughly coat the potatoes and stir together in a large bowl.
  • Spoon potatoes out onto individual aluminum foil squares and sprinkle with desired toppings.  We did cheddar and bacon for one, and gorgonzola cheese and bacon for the other.
  • Wrap the potatoes up in the foil so they are completely covered. We usually wrap each one in two pieces of foil.
  • Bake, grill, or cook in a fire pit. It is ready to eat when you peel back some of the foil and potatoes are fork tender and break apart easily.
