Bacon Ranch Baked Potatoes

On days when I'm just too exhausted to prepare an entire meal, these potatoes make an excellent easy side dish.  They're so yummy, that I even make them for lunch sometimes.  Ranch dressing and bacon make a perfect pairing for atop these delicious "baked" potatoes.  With only four ingredients and about 20 minutes, you can make these, too!

  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons ranch dressing
  • 4 tablespoons (heaping) pre-cooked, crumbled bacon
  • butter or margarine, for frying

Pan Insert to Use:  Base Unit

Servings: 2-4

1.  Preheat grill.
2.  Wash potatoes and slice lengthwise.
3.  Coat potatoes with butter or margarine - on all sides:

4.  Lay two potato halves skin-side-down in the grill.  Lay other 2 potato halves on top with skins facing up.  You may have to offset the potatoes slightly so that the unit will close:

5.  Close lid and cook for 12-15 minutes.  Test doneness by sticking a fork in center of potatoes.  Carefully remove from grill when done.

6.  Slice potatoes lengthwise (not through the skin) and mash up middles slightly with a fork.
7.  Top each of the potatoes with 1 tablespoon ranch dressing and 1 heaping tablespoon bacon.
