Recently I tried my hand at making some homemade potato pasta. When trying to decide what would be good on potato pasta I came up with two answers quickly. The first was butter. The second was bacon, cheese and ranch dressing, like you might have on a baked potato. The folks at Bolthouse Farms, the people that make those yummy smoothies, had asked me to check out one of their new dressings not long ago. It was sitting on my shelf just begging to be used, and so I did. I used it to make a quick Cheesy Bacon Ranch sauce. Here’s how I made it. (Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.)
This sauce could be used on lots of things. I used it on pasta but it could also be used on potatoes, salad or even for dipping!
Quick Cheesy Bacon Ranch Sauce
- 1x 14 oz Bolthouse Farms Classic Ranch Yogurt Dressing
- 1 cup cheddar cheese
- 1 cup crumbled bacon
Decide what you’re going to put it on. I chose potato pasta, which I made myself. (Red more on that in my Veggetti review.). This is what the pasta looked like before the sauce.
I showed you this because the pasta was super mushy and the photo with the sauce on that you’ll see in a moment looks like soup. Or baby food.
Anyway. Back to the recipe.
Get your ingredients together.
Put the three ingredients into a small bowl, or a small pot if you want it warmed. Or have it cold, it works that way also.
Stir and mix well.
Pour the sauce over the food you want it on.
The dressing is what makes this sauce. I mean, don’t get me wrong, you can almost never go wrong with cheese or bacon. But this sauce has a little zip to it, which is why I thought it would be perfect for potatoes. And perfect it was. It tasted far better then it looked on my mushy potatoes. The zip comes from the dressing. The folks at Bolthouse Farms recently came out with some new Blue Cheese Yogurt Dressings. While I was getting them out of the display I saw the Classic Ranch Yogurt Dressing. I love ranch. I’d never tried a yogurt dressing before so I had to get that too.
If you’re a fan of blue cheese, you’ll be interested to know that Bolthouse Farms’ has three Blue Cheese Dressings that will be perfect for your summer meals. They’ve got Bold Blue Cheese Greek Yogurt Dressing, Chunky Blue Cheese Yogurt Dressing and Chunky Blue Cheese Vinaigrette. Grab some buffalo wings, summer salad, veggies, and burgers and enjoy, there’s a little something blue for everyone! Hubby loves blue cheese so I want to figure out something to make him that he’ll really enjoy.
What’s your favorite use for blue cheese dressing?
