I am participating in the Hidden Valley Ranch Ranchify Recipe Challenge (in a separate blog post, this recipe for broccoli twice baked potatoes is not sponsored). Other than using it as a dip for my pizza crust, I’m not a big ranch eater so I thought that this challenge would be just that –  challenging. Then I remembered that I make awesome twice baked potatoes.

Since this challenge required me to use a Hidden Valley Ranch product, I had to switch up my recipe a fair bit. Actually, to be completely honest I just started through stuff together when it came down to it (the best recipes always start out this way).

I had to choose between the Original, Spicy and Cheese flavored ranch varieties for my potatoes. I knew either one would taste great, but I opted for the Spicy. In the end, the results were simply delicious.

When I usually make stuffed potatoes I simply add broccoli, red pepper, cheese (either cheddar or a tex mex variety), Miracle Whip, and sometimes sour cream. Oh and garlic…lots and lots of garlic. I never usually measure it out but I did attempt it when I made this ranch stuffed potato recipe.

This broccoli ranch twice baked potato recipe is loaded with flavor and make even the non-potato lovers (like me) want to go for seconds. The potatoes I used in this recipe were massive, so if you’re using smaller potatoes I recommend using less ranch and miracle whip (reduce by roughly a tablespoon each).

BBQ Twice Baked Potatoes

It’s easy to make these twice baked potatoes on the BBQ. Simply wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil at first and then once the insides are restuffed, place them on these baking tins and BBQ on medium until the cheese is melted and the stuffing is warm.

Twice Baked Potatoes Ingredients

Since it’s just the two of us (well, three but my son is one and not eating this) I only cook up two potatoes to stuff but this is easy to make work for your family.

  • Large russet potatoes
  • Garlic
  • Chopped broccoli
  • Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch
  • Light Miracle Whip
  • Cheddar cheese (tex mex also works)
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Randa’s Tip: Don’t do what I did and completely gut the potatoes, leave some along the edge so the shell will hold it’s shape. I messed up the first two, which lead to two massive stuffed potatoes instead of four.

That’s it! They’re really easy to make and will be an amazing side dish for your next family BBQ. If you like it, don’t forget to pin it!
