Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

After a long week of work, blogging, school, and other activities – we love to unwind and reconnect as a family with a fun and relaxing Family Night at home. Just us, a good movie on DVD, and (of course) some delicious foods to nibble on!

 

‘Quick & Easy’ is also what we’re looking for – and we’ve found some great recipe inspiration over on the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Pinterest boards where all sorts of delicious ideas are shared using Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing. Today we’re sharing two favorite recipes we’ve found: BLT Ranch Rollups and Baked Spinach and Chicken Dip – both inspired by Pinterest!

We always have Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing on hand. (I will also admit here…we’ve actually been known to take a bottle of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® with us on vacation! Seriously!) It is delicious on salads of course, and our daughter won’t eat her chicken nuggets or her carrot sticks without her beloved Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing to use as a dipping sauce!

Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® bottled and dry dressings are also very versatile and delicious used as a seasoning in recipes like today’s BLT Ranch Rollups and Baked Spinach and Chicken Dip.

In these Ranch BLT Rollups (adapted from this pin on Hidden Valley’s Game Day Recipes Pinterest Board, cream cheese is seasoned with dry Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing and Seasoning Mix – giving the traditional trio of bacon, lettuce and tomato an extra-delicious, spiced-up kick of flavor!

BLT Ranch Rollups & Baked Spinach and Chicken Dip (Family Night Appetizers) - A Family Feast

BLT Ranch Rollups

  • Prep Time: 2 hours 50 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 3 hours
  • Yield: 18-24 pieces

Ingredients

  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature (set aside one tablespoon)
  • 2 tablespoons Hidden Valley® Ranch Dressing and Seasoning Mix
  • 1 cup orange cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 3 12-inch wraps (any flavor, we used tomato basil lavash bread)

Instructions

  1. Core and cut tomato into small cubes and place in a strainer over a bowl. Sprinkle and toss with the salt. Let drain for at least 30 minutes, stirring and pressing against the sides of the strainer often. After 30 minutes, press a few paper towels into the tomatoes to absorb any last liquid. You should have one cup of tomato remaining. Discard liquid.
  2. While tomatoes are draining, cook bacon to crisp and chop. Set aside.
  3. If you haven’t already, pull cream cheese out to soften and reserve one tablespoon. This will be used to seal rollups.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese (save one tablespoon aside), 2 tablespoons Hidden Valley® Ranch Dressing and Seasoning Mix, cheddar cheese and chopped bacon to combine.
  5. Divide the filling into three and place on three Lavash or tortilla bread making the filling go end to end and spreading it out as thin as possible. Leave an inch or so on the far side and using the one tablespoon of plain cream cheese, spread a thin layer on each. This will help keep them sealed.
  6. Divide the lettuce between the three by layering over the spread.
  7. Finally divided the tomatoes between the three rollups.
  8. Start with the end closest to you and roll a tight roll away from you ending seam down.
  9. Wrap each roll tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate to harden filling for a few hours.
  10. Once set, remove plastic and on a cutting board, cut in half and each half in half. Then cut each piece in half to give you eight per roll. You may end up discarding the end pieces which would then yield six per roll.
  11. Turn on side with cut facing up and arrange on a serving platter.
