  1. Add potatoes to a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes.

  3. Wipe out the skillet, return to stove, and pour in vegetable oil. Stir in mushrooms and onion, and cook until onion is soft and translucent.
  4. When the potatoes are done, drain water, and place potatoes in a large bowl. Mash in butter and ranch dressing. With a potato masher or electric mixer, continue to mash until the potatoes are smooth. Stir in the mushrooms, onions, and crumbled bacon.

I think it would be better if you sauteed the mushrooms and onions in a bit of the bacon grease for flavour.

i loved these potatoes. easy to make. i didn't use ranch dressing i used milk and i used more bacon and mushrooms than the recipe said. the result was amazing.

A million stars! I doubled this, used a full pound of bacon, added DRY ranch dressing and folded in half a bag of coleslaw mix that I'd briefly steamed. I also mashed the potatoes with a stick of butter, couple big scoops of sour cream and a little hot milk. Holy frijoles! Incredible side dish. Be careful that you hold yourself back, you'll stuff yourself silly if you aren't careful.
