Cheesy Ranch Potatoes



These ranch potatoes are one of our favorite side dishes.  We often triple the recipe when we have the whole family together and have no  leftovers!  It's a family favorite.

Cheesy Ranch Potatoes
Ingredients:
4 large baking potatoes
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1 cup shredded cheese (I used Colby Jack)
5 slices cooked bacon (broken into pieces)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 ounce package dry ranch dressing mix
4 green onions, finely chopped

Directions:
1. Wash and pierce potatoes in several places with a fork.  Microwave on high 10 minutes until tender.  Set aside to cool slightly.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 11 x 7 inch baking pan.

3. Combine cream cheese and sour cream in a large bowl; beat until smooth.  Add yellow onion,  half of the cheese, half of the bacon bits and salt.  Mix well.

4. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half.  Scoop out pulp and mash potatoes.  Then add to the cream cheese mixture.  Beat with a mixer.  Stir in milk.  Add dry ranch dressing mix.  And mix in well.

5. Spread potato mixture in prepared pan. Bake uncovered 30 minutes.  Remove from oven, sprinkle with remaining cheese, bacon pieces, and green onions.  Bake 5 minutes longer, or until cheese melts.

Serves: 8

    Have you ever frozen these to use for an upcoming event? Do you need to increase the liquid? Any changes at all?

    Hi, I live in UK, what might the equivalent to ranch dressing be? I know it says “dry” so wasn’t sure what to use, we don’t have that here, well I have never heard of it. Could I use a soup powder instead?

  5. Alyona says:

    Made it today, kids and husband are happy. I didn’t mash the potatoes I cubed them instead so it will be more like baked potatoes. Thank you for the recipe.

      You could use a light or fat free cream cheese and sour cream. That would cut down on calories and still keep the same great taste.
