Baked Potato Slices with Cheese and Bacon
If you love baked potatoes (or ranch, or bacon), you’re gonna love these loaded potato slices. Perfectly tender potato slices are seasoned with ranch seasoning and piled high with melty cheese and bacon- talk about the perfect combination!
Not only are these Cheesy Ranch Potato Slices to die for, but they’re also so easy to make! In less than 45 minutes, you’ll have the best appetizer, snack, side dish, or even dinner (if you make enough of them!).
Ingredients Needed for Loaded Baked Potato Slices
This recipe is so unbelievably good, that you won’t even believe how simple the ingredients are! Here is what you’ll need:
- Ranch dip powder (I use Hidden Valley Dips mix)
- Colby jack cheese
- Green onions
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
How to Make Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes
Begin this recipe by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
Wash and slice each potato into ½-inch rounds. Toss the rounds with olive oil and spread them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure they are in a single layer and do not overlap each other.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake them for 20 minutes.
Carefully flip the potatoes, sprinkle with more salt and pepper, and bake for 15 minutes. Sprinkle the ranch dip powder over each potato, followed by the shredded cheese and crumbled bacon.
Bake the loaded slices for 2 minutes, shut off the oven with the tray inside, and let rest for a few minutes. This helps the cheese get super melty without browning it.
Garnish with sliced green onions and serve!
How to Store and Reheat Cheesy Ranch Potato Slices
Fresh is usually best, but I can truly say that these are just as delicious when they’re reheated! To store leftover potato slices, place them into an airtight container for up to four days.
To reheat leftovers, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Tent the pan with foil to keep the cheese from getting overcooked or burning and bake for about 15 minutes, or until hot.
