This is a dish I serve with smoked ribs.
I had an idea. The idea came one night at the local prime rib joint. There is nothing better to me than prime rib with a baked potato with sour cream and chives, and of course a gin martini. So, what I did is put a southern twist on it. I combined potatoes with sour cream and chives and then said, I need bacon bits and then said, if only it had herbs. So guess what, sour cream with herbs and a little mayonnaise is called Ranch dressing.
Proportional Serves 2:
- 5 new red potatoes (peeled and diced, boiled 7 to 8 minutes or until al dente, “to the tooth”) (Note: Once the potatoes are drained they keep cooking and might need a cold water rinse to cool)
- 5 chives (aka scallions or green onions) chopped
- 5 6″ slices of thick bacon fried, chopped
- 2 TBSP bacon oil
- ½ cup Ranch dressing
- Salt and Pepper
Mix all in a bowl and salt and pepper to taste. Add more Ranch dressing if necessary. Refrigerate over night.
