Found this at Taste of Home and all I can say is that it was a huge hit with my guys at the dinner table. I made it a couple of weeks ago and they are already requesting it again. The prep time seems like a lot but that is basically baking the potatoes and frying the bacon. This step can be done the day before.
Ranch Potatoes- 8-10 medium potatoes, 1 can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken), 1 1/2 cup milk, 1 envelope ranch dressing mix, 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, salt and pepper and 6 bacon slices.
CRACK POTATOES 2 (16oz) tubs of Sour Cream 2 cups Shredded Cheddar cheese 2 (3oz) Bags Bacon Bits 2 pkgs Ranch Dip mix 1 large bag (28-30oz) Shredded potatoes Mix first 4 ingredients until well blended. Add potatoes, pour into large casserole dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until top is lightly browned and potatoes are cooked thoroughly.
This casserole is the perfect comfort food on a cold winter day to warm up the whole family. Creamy potatoes, cheddar cheese and turkey bacon blended together and baked to perfection, this side dish is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.
