Roasted Ranch Potatoes with a Twist

Roasted Ranch Potatoes with a TwistRoasted Ranch Potatoes with a Twist

In our quest to eat better, I pulled this little Roasted Ranch Potato with a Twist concoction.  Now, I did not tell my family what I did.  Guess what?  They never noticed!  Score!

I will say I could sort of tell the difference because there was a little twang, occasionally.  So, I added parmesan, and that just was what I needed.  I will make this again!

Honestly, I have heard that parsnips can be a substitution for potatoes.  I would always go 1/2 radishes, parsnips, or turnips and 1/2 potatoes to ease my crew into better eating.


Five potatoes washed and cubed


A packet of dry ranch

Olive oil


Three turnips washed and cubed


Wash and cube the potatoes and turnips—place in a large bowl.  Add a bit of olive oil, seasoning, and the ranch packet.

I cooked them at 350 for about 40 minutes.  At about 1/2 in the cooking process, I flipped them to try and brown both sides.  Next time, I may cook them in my big electric skillet.

Of course, I added parmesan cause, you know, parmesan.
