I found a recipe that I LOVED but DH and I are trying to cut back on fat and calories. This is so good, you won't miss the fat! (servings are for a side dish (half potato each) we like to do two halves each and have a salad for dinner.

I love ranch dressing on my baked potates so I just had to try these. These were so good! I used real bacon bits to cut down on prep time. Yum!
