"This great cheesy potato dish with processed cheese and ranch dressing mix is named after my friend Angela who is the best cook in all of Mississippi! It takes a little time to peel the potatoes, but one taste of this and you will be hooked! Guaranteed to be a family favorite."

This is different and quite tasty. I used Jerusalem artichokes instead of potatoes, since we always get a big batch out of our garden and my husband loves them. Creamy and cheesy as can be, and a great side dish to just about anything.


These were awesome. I was a little bit scared of the cheese and ranch together, and decided to make them anyway because hubby is a fan of both. Wow...this one is staying in the recipe books. Thanks for posting.


This is AWESOME! We have an over abundance of potatoes at our house and after eating this tonight, my husband literally asked if we could have it again tomorrow night and if we could use the other 10 pounds of potatoes! :) He was over exaggerating, of course, but they are so very good! The only thing I would say to do that I didn't do is spray the foil with PAM or something like that before you put the potatoes down. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks!!
