The most p(ot)atriotic side dish you’ve ever seen.
The Fourth of July is a truly delicious holiday, and there are so many sweet, sweet ways to celebrate.
The savory food is also delicious, but it’s a little less red, white, and blue.
If you want to add a little more ~patriotism~ to your barbecue spread…
…here’s how to make an easy, star-spangled side dish that everybody will love.
1. First, cut 5 pounds of potatoes into 1-inch cubes, boil until tender, and drain.
2. Dump the cooked potatoes into a rectangular casserole dish.
3. Smother with ranch dressing.
Or mayo or sour cream, if you prefer. You could also use Greek yogurt, but that would be less patriotic.
If you want to add salt and pepper, now would be the time. If you’re using ranch dressing, you probably won’t need additional seasoning. If you’re using mayonnaise or sour cream, season to taste.
5. Cook 8-10 strips of bacon until they’re super crispy, then lay them over the potatoes.
O say, can you see where I’m going with this?
6. Crumble a big handful of blue corn tortilla chips, and sprinkle them in the upper left hand corner.
7. To make stars, put some ranch or sour cream into a ziploc bag, then cut a little bit of the corner off and pipe it in rows over the corn chips.
Move over flag cake, there’s a new AmeriCasserole in town!
