Ranch Potatoes Recipe

Perhaps you are looking for a perfect side dish for the Holidays or to go with dinner, if so this recipe for ranch potatoes is perfect for you. This is a casserole dish that combines cubed potatoes with a ranch/cream of mushroom soup sauce, cheese, and bacon. Those ingredients alone should be enough to hint that this recipe is pretty good. I felt like I cubed the potatoes a little too big so I would recommend slicing the potatoes a little thinner.  If you want to skip the step of boiling the potatoes, they can be done in the oven but will need to cook for longer depending on how big they are cut. This is a great recipe for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Enjoy.

VARIATION: Cream.of.Chicken and Ranch Dressing!! just made these using cream of chicken (I added salt to make up for not being mushrooms).... and regular ranch (Due to not having a packet of dry) and if anyone alternates normal ranch dressing you need to cut the milk to just a 1/2 cup...and use all but a teaspoon of the C.O.C I followed the rest to a T and they are simply delicious!!

Think next time im going to use up a can of chicken breast and my Instant Potatoes..maybe do a layer deal of mashed tatoes...chicken....and the C.O,C soup/Milk/SnP/Ranch/Cheese mixture on top of that.... sounds good to me...but Im aslo tired lol!!

Thanks for the recipe and giving me a quick yummy meal!

I have never tried it with a different kind of soup so I cannot comment on how it would taste. If you do try it with another soup please let everyone know how it turns out. Thanks.

Very good! I left out the 1 1/2 cups of milk and used the liquid ranch and it turned out great!
