Cheesy Ranch Potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Although you can cook the potatoes in the Big Easy from start to finish, I recommend using a microwave to par-cook them first.

  • Fire up your Big Easy. Meanwhile, prepare the potatoes.
  • Place the potatoes into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 3 minutes on high. Stir and check for doneness. Microwave another 2 minutes (or longer if needed) until just tender. Do not over-cook, they need to have a little bite to them.
  • Drizzle the potatoes with the oil.
  • Sprinkle with the Ranch seasoning and salt and pepper. Stir to coat completely.
  • Divide the potatoes between two disposable pans and transfer the pans to a Big Easy basket fitted with a Bunk Bed so you can cook both pans at the same time.
  • Place the basket into the Big Easy and cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes start to turn golden brown around the edges.
  • Divide the cheese between the two pans and return to the Big Easy to melt, another 3-5 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the pans from the Big Easy and serve.
