Recipe of the week: Bacon ranch potatoes

Each week, Let’s RV will publish one recipe each week from the RV Centennial Cookbook authored by Evada Cooper.

The book features a collection of recipes submitted by RVers themselves. The company is providing the recipes in hopes of encouraging RVers to submit more recipes to be included in a new edition expected to be published soon.

This week’s recipe is for bacon ranch potatoes. It was submitted by Lill from Paragould, Ark., who started work camping in 1973. Her first RV was a tent, which was set up in the dark without a flashlight. They woke up the next morning to discover they had been sleeping in sleeping bags on a bed of walnuts. Eventually, they bought a Class A motorhome and now belong to Camp Club USA and Passport America.


  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1/2 Cup bacon bits
  • 1 12 ounce bottle of ranch dressing
  • 1 Cup shredded cheese of your choice


Peel potatoes and cut into chunks. Bring them to a boil on the stove top and boil just long enough to be fork tender, but not mushy. Drain and place in an 8×8 baking pan. Sprinkle the bacon bits, pour the ranch dressing over the top and cover with the shredded cheese.

Bake in oven at 350 degrees just until the cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy. You can use fresh cooked bacon crumbled and shredded fiesta cheese works well with this dish, too.
