Add a drained can of green beans, a little ranch seasoning, some black pepper, and a good amount of crumbled bacon. Let everything get warm and it is ready to be served.

You’ll have to be careful about how much ranch seasoning you add because it is salty. Start with 1 teaspoon and go from there. Keep adding a little until you get the flavor you like.

  1. this was a good recipe idea for me to make a little twist to it. I oven roasted the potatoes w/onions and bacon when done I put in a pint jar of my canned green beans and sprinkled homemade Ranch seasoning on. Turned out great thanks for the idea.

  2. Can you tell me what is Ranch seasoning? Is it what I use to make the dressing? Guess I am somewhat slow on this one. Recipe sounds wonderful I am sure my family will love it. Thanks for your efforts and sharing.

      I use the Hidden Valley packets that are in the salad dressing section of the store.

  3. I made this last night and it was a big hit. Will be making again. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

  4. This is the easiest, most delicious, country ranch green bean potato dish I have ever made. I’m sending this to my family and friends. Yum yum yum.

  5. This was awesome and I will definitely make this again. Anybody have any idea on the nutrition info for it? Obviously it’s not low calorie, but if somebody has it, it would save me from trying to figure it out!

    Tasty recipe, but I put ranch powder in a lot of things. There’s nothing proprietary about this recipe. [*shrug*]

      You are welcome to leave your link here, but I counted 5 differences in ingredients/amount of ingredients which is a lot for such a simple and basic recipe.
