Grilled Potatoes with Bacon-Ranch Sauce

These potatoes are tender and good all by themselves, but pairing them with the sauce creates a perfect combination—a side dish compatible with any entree cooked on the grill. —Craig Carpenter, Coraopolis, Pennsylvania

    I don't see sour cream in the recipe! I hate to give this a 3 star rating because I haven't tried it, but where else can you ask a question?

    Very tasty, easy to cook, add crumbled bacon & cover with your favorite cheese. Slice up some Kielbasa and cook it on the side. Easy clean up, great for camping.

    I am wondering why it is called 'Grilled Potatoes with Sour Cream Sauce' when there is no sour cream in the recipe. Could an ingredient be missing?
