Country Ranch Green Beans ‘n Potatoes with Bacon

  • ½ stick butter (4 Tbl.)
  • 1 small sweet onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 medium regular red potato, unpeeled, ½-3/4″ dice
  • ¼ tsp. coarse ground black pepper
  • 3 strips crisp-cooked bacon, thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp. finely minced garlic
  • 1½ tsp. dry Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing or Dips Mix (either work)
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can green beans, drained

How to Make It

  • In medium saucepan or small frying pan, melt butter. Add onion, potato and pepper. Sauté over medium heat until potatoes are fork tender.
  • Add bacon, garlic, and Ranch Mix. Stir in well.
  • Fold in green beans and heat through, simmering, stirring gently and occasionally so that you don’t wreck them.
  • Add pepper to taste. Add salt only if desired. *Ranch Mixes are salty

    1. I love my green beans and this recipe sounds delicious. I will use the larger can when fixing them for my family and add a few more potatoes. I agree with you on the salt, I have to watch myself as to not add too much. Thank you for sharing and I am making them this weekend for my daughter and husbands Birthday, August 15th.
      I will try and let you know how they turn out, it is very hard to ruin a green bean.
