I have such a vivid memory of eating ranch home fries in one of my favorite breakfast spots. We went there for my husbands birthday and it was the morning we told my daughter that she was going to be a big sister. It was a very special day with a delicious breakfast. When I tasted this recipe, I was immediately brought back to that moment.
It is so easy to make your own ranch seasoning and I am pretty sure that you already have most (if not all) the spices in your cabinet. This way you can control the ingredients. It is pretty crazy all the extra stuff that comes in the pre-made packets. The recipe makes more than you need for this dish, but you can store the leftovers in a sealed container.
To cook these home fries, I used the fat that I rendered from the bacon to add even more flavor, but you can use any fat that you want. The key to getting these potatoes crispy without sticking to the bottom of the pan is to leave them alone. Let them get crispy on one side before moving them around.
Eat this on its own or with a side of greens and fresh fruit. You can even drizzle it with some compliant ranch dressing to boost that ranch flavor even more! I love both Tessemae’s and PRIMAL KITCHEN . Also, make sure to read your labels to find Whole30 compliant bacon. I usually find mine at Sprouts, Natural Grocers or Whole Foods.

Whole30 Breakfast Skillet with Ranch Home Fries
- 2 Russet Potatoes peeled and diced
- 6 strips Bacon
- 1 Tbls Ranch Seasoning
- 4 Eggs
- Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl and store in a sealed container
- Add the bacon to your skillet and then turn the heat to medium. Cook bacon until done and then remove from pan. Discard the fat leaving 2 Tbls in the pan
- Add in the peeled and diced potatoes to the remaining fat. Let the potatoes fry in the fat for at least a minute before moving around. You want the potatoes to get nice and crispy on all sides (about 10 min)
- Chop the cooked bacon and add back into the pan after the potatoes are mostly cooked and add in 1 Tbls of the ranch seasoning. Then make 4 wells in the potato mixture and crack an egg into each one. Reduce heat to medium/low and cover with lid or sheet pan if you don't have a lid for 5-10 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs cooked
- Remove from heat and add more ranch seasoning if desired (to taste)
