Savory Ranch Red Potato Pockets **


1 lb (about 4-6 medium & large) Red Potatoes
1 small (about ½ cup) Vidalia onion
1 cup Lite Ranch salad dressing
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder (or 2 cloves finely chopped fresh garlic)
1 cup part skim shredded mozzarella (or favorite melting cheese)

*Slice potatoes into 1/4-1/3 inch thick "coins" then cut into quarters. Move to a medium mixing bowl.
*Coarsely chop the onion, then add to the potato bowl & combine.
*In a small mixing bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except cheese & blend well.
*Toss potatoes & onions with the Ranch mixture until all is evenly coated.
*Add shredded cheese and blend until all is evenly distributed.
*Divide mixture in half, putting half in one foil packet and half in another foil packet.
*Grill (or bake at 400º) for 30 minutes, or just until potatoes are desired tenderness.
*Makes about 4-6 servings.
(Amy's notes: Next time, I'll cut back on the pepper and ranch and let them cook an extra 5-10 minutes.)
