For the Potatoes

  • 3 Yukon gold potatoes, cut in 2-inch slices
  • 6 Tbsp. herb butter (see below)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups 0% Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup mayo
  • ½ packet of ranch seasoning
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • ½ cup green onion, diced
  • ¼ white onion, diced
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and diced
  • Chives, for garnish

For the Herb Butter

  • 6 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. parsley
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder or 1 Tbsp. fresh minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. For the herb butter, melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds and mix in all of the herbs. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425˚F. Place potato slices in a cast iron skillet and pour the herb butter over top. Bake the potatoes for about 20 minutes.
  3. As the potatoes are baking, cook the bacon to desired texture and chop into small pieces.
  4. Dice tomatoes, onion and chives.
  5. Mix together the Greek yogurt, mayo and ranch seasoning. Set aside for topping the potatoes after they finish baking.
  6. After 20 minutes remove the potatoes from the oven and flip them over. Smash them with the back of a spoon and top with half of the cheddar cheese and the white onion.
  7. Place back into the oven for another 10 minutes until the cheese melts.
    Once the cheese has melted, remove from the oven and top with half of the Greek yogurt, bacon, chives and tomatoes.
  8. Add the remainder of cheese and Greek yogurt.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
