“This is a delicious side dish with cheese, potatoes, and Ranch! What's not to love?! I am always begged to bring this wherever I go. It is a great complement to a barbeque or any potluck meal. I have experimented with using more chili powder and using seasoning salt instead of regular salt.”

AWESOME! I made this for the first time for a pot luck at work. I made a few changes based on previous suggestions that were submitted. I used seasoned salt instead of regular salt. I used only 2TBS of lite melted butter (6 is way too much). Melted butter works better because it's easier to mix the seasonings in with the potatoes. I baked the potatoes for an hour the night before. The next day at work, I put the potatos in a crock pot, added the cheese, Ranch dressing, garlic and bacon pieces and cooked on low for 3 hours to melt the chesse. By lunch time it was all ready and it turned out perfect! I had A LOT of people ask for the recipe. It was the first dish to be completely eaten! And the best part was it was so easy to make!! The hardest part was cutting all the potatoes. I will denfinately be making this many more times!



I'm begging anyone that is about to make this recipe to please please please exclude the 6 tbsp of butter!!! I just spooned over 2/3 cup of grease out of the pan. This could be a wonderful comfort dish with a great melding of flavours but the butter is totally unnecessary! I gave it 4 stars cuz I will make it again, just no butter.



Delicious and easy--you will not be disappointed! After reading several reviews with tweaking suggestions, here is what I did to produce the delectable result: I cubed red potatoes, leaving the skin on. I cut the butter amount by 1/3, and sautéed 1/2 cup chopped onion in it until softened. I then added the seasonings, and poured the mixture over the potatoes in the casserole dish, tossing to coat. After baking, I added 1/4 real bacon bits, along with the cheese and dressing, to the potatoes. The dish accompanied charcoal grilled hamburgers--a VERY tasty meal! I will definitely make this potato dish again and again.
