  • 6 red potatoes (washed and chopped into bite size pieces)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ onion chopped
  • cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ (1 ounce) packet ranch dressing mix
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 8 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
  • cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 green onions chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray a 9 x 9 inch pan with non stick cooking spray.
  • Toss the chopped red potatoes in olive oil. Let them soak in the olive oil for about 10 minutes.
  • Place them in the pan, mix in the onion pieces, and stir in the plain Greek yogurt.
  • Sprinkle the potatoes with ranch dressing mix, pepper, and garlic salt, and stir them around, so they are all coated in the seasonings.
  • Cover the pan with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and add your cooked bacon pieces and cheese.
  • Place it back in the oven, uncovered for another 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted, and the potatoes are soft and getting golden.
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh green onions.
