  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is golden brown.

These were great! A nice change from the ordinary. The only changes I made were cooking my potato cubes in water with chicken base (similar to boullion but in a loose powder). I did not even add any butter and they didn't need it. I taste-tested at the end to check for any salt addition, as I had the boullion and ranch mix with salt already in there; they only needed a sprinkle. They were so whippy light and thank goodness my electric mixer didn't give out until the very end!UPDATE:1/22/06...Since I love the flavor of these I wanted to make again and didn't have sour problem! I just omitted it, again did not add any butter and just used the cream cheese and broth liquid from cooking potatoes in. I grated some fresh romano cheese on top and into the oven...mmmmm, sooo good! Texture and everything was still superb!



This has been a family favorite for years! Thicker, richer and more flavorful than tradional mashed potatoes,there is no need to measure the ingredients exactly--just add to suit your taste and desired consistency. However, I always use the entire package of the ranch dressing and don't bother with the last step of baking, and it is always perfect.

I wanted to cut back on the carbs a bit and add some veggies, so I did half potatoes and half cauliflower. After I mashed them, I added homemade dry ranch seasoning and 1/4 c. of grated parmesan cheese. This was a hit with everyone, and noone could tell there was cauliflower in it. This dish went really well with my father in law's roast. A+!
