  • 2 pounds baby red potatoes halved
  • 1 Hidden Valley Ranch dressing packet
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 teaspoon chives optional


  • In a large ziplock bag, combine the ranch dressing packet and olive oil. Shake to combine.
  • Add the potatoes to the mixture and close securely before shaking.
  • Cut 4 large pieces of tinfoil and divide the potatoes evenly between the four.
  • Top each potato packet with a fourth of the cheese.
  • Pull up the long ends and meet in the middle, then fold down. Fold the ends closed tightly.
  • Preheat the grill to 350° on medium heat.
  • Place the foil packets, seam side down. Grill for 10 minutes, then flip over.
  • Grill an additional 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove and carefully open and enjoy.
  • Top with chives, sour cream, bacon, ham, salsa, or broccoli.


  • The packets should be fully sealed before adding them to the grill.
  • Preheat your grill before adding the potatoes so that they cook through evenly.
  • Take care when opening the packets, as they will be VERY hot!
