Cheesy Ranch bacon potato & Asparagus bake

//

Ranch potato final

 

An easy weeknight side that the whole family will love! I especially love this side because when I go low-carb I can pick out the asparagus and the rest of my family can still have their carby potatoes =P

Ingredients:

1 bundle of fresh asparagus

1 – 1.5 pound golden potato steamers ( The steamers are the easiest option. If you chose not to use the steamers, boil potato’s until fork pricks them easily. Depending on the size of the potato’s, ¬†they may need cut into quarters. I try to by the mini golden potatoes if available.)

1/2 Packet of Ranch dressing seasoning

1/2 pound of bacon (fried and crumbled)

1/3 C. of Shredded cheddar cheese. (or a handful or two)

olive oil to drizzle, about 3 Tbsp.

 

Directions:

~ Preheat oven to 425 degrees~

First fry bacon, and place on a paper towel to drain grease; set aside. Follow directions on potato steamers. Take potatoes carefully out of the bag and place on a large cookie sheet that has been drizzled with olive oil. Using a potato masher,  mash each potato once so they flatten (look at photo below). Rinse and snap asparagus, pat dry. Place asparagus onto the cookie sheet. Sprinkle potatoes and asparagus with crumbled bacon, and 1/2 of ranch packet. Next drizzle olive oil over the top. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Take out of oven and sprinkle with cheddar cheese, place back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted
