With holiday season in full bloom I know we're all in search of quick and easy recipes to whip up for a week night meal or when family comes to town. Today what I'm sharing isn't mine but Thomas'.
I'll let y'all in on a little secret...you see Thomas is the real cook around these parts. While I may cook during the week, HE is the one that is actually good at whipping up something tasty and creative for us to enjoy (now baking is a total different story). So today I'm having Thomas take over to share his recipe for bite-sized cheesy ranch potatoes.
These cheesy potatoes are the best side dish to add to any weeknight meal. Or in Thomas' case anything that's been grilled to perfection. According to Thomas these mini Red Potatoes are a must, and I'd take his advice if I were you -- delish! However, if you have normal sized potatoes those will work as well.

Kraft Natural Shredded Cheese (8oz)
1. Cook potatoes in the microwave until "baked". (This is a Thomas shortcut, but if you have the time feel free to bake them in the oven as normal).
2. Cut each potato in half.
3. Put slits on the inside of each potato and add a slice of butter, letting it melt into the potato.
4. Top each potato with a dollop of ranch, TONS of cheese (the more the better if you ask me), and bacon bits.
5. Bake the potatoes at 350 for 3-5 mintues, until the cheese is melty and gooey and ready for your to devour.
You guys, is my man not a genius. These potatoes are not only super easy to make, but they're absolutely delicious. Don't take my word for it (heck don't even take Thomas', although you should), try it out for yourself. Your friend and family will thank you.
Not to mention you can get $1 off when you buy 2 8oz Natural Shreds & Chunks, from 12/13-2/13.
