Potatoes are boring no more! Wrapped in Bacon then sprinkled with B&B pork rub, they are so good you might have to make a double-batch.
Ranch Potatoes are an easy side dish you can prepare while cooking up other dishes on the grill. Golden potatoes are thinly sliced and tossed with bacon, ranch seasoning, and butter.
This recipe calls for fresh chives to be added at the end of cooking, but you can use any fresh herbs you may have on hand. Another tasty addition is to add some of your favorite grated hard cheese as the potatoes come off the grill.
Save on dishes and cook in a disposable tray, but can easily be done in a backing tray or Duct oven also.
