Excellent recipe. I made is for some friends and they loved it! I followed some others advice though and made some changes. I don't think I will ever try making it as the recipe says. I used 12 medium sized new red potatoes and cut them into quarters. I boiled them for almost 15 minutes. I then mixed the potatoes, cheese, and ranch dressing, along with 1/3 c of chopped green onions, and placed them in a 2 quart casserole dish. I baked it for about 10 minutes and it came out wonderful. Some of the potatoes will break down so it is more of a casserole type dish. One word of caution - pick your ranch dressing carefully. Since the potatoes and cheese are very mild in flavor, the taste of your dressing will really stand out. Pick a mild flavored ranch. I tried using a Bacon Ranch, and I thought the bacon flavor was a little too strong. With the medium sized potatoes, I ended up with enough food for 8. I didn't add any extra dressing or cheese either. In fact, next time I may cut it back just a little. This one is a keeper!


These potatoes were great. Instead of cutting them in half though, I quartered the potatoes prior to boiling them. After they were cooked I put them in a casserole dish and spread the dressing on and then sprinkled the cheese over the top. I stirred it together and then put in the oven. I think this was a bit easier than fussing with each individual potato half. These are best right out of the oven, the leftovers weren't as tasty. Overall this recipe is delicious-we all enjoyed it!


Simply Delicious! I made these potatoes last night and they were great. My husband loved them, but had one request- add bacon next time! Even my finicky 13-month-old gobbled them down in no time! This is a great recipe because its so quick and packed with flavor. I modified it a little, like most everyone else. I boiled 11 potatoes for a little over 15 minutes, and quartered them (although next time I'd slice slice them thick), put them in a 2-quart casserole dish, covered with just over a cup of ranch, 2/3 cup of chopped green onions, and 1 1/2 cups of shredded colby jack cheese. I baked them for almost 10 minutes, and they were fantastic. This will definitley be a regular at our dinner table!
