  • 1 envelope dry Ranch dressing mix

My mouth is watering just looking at the picture!

I'd omit the cracker topping, but other than that, these sound cheesy and delicious!

What a simple, delicious side dish! Great flavor and easy to prepare!

The potatoes were creamy, and the cheesy bread crumb topping was excellent.

Super cheesy. This is a great recipe!

I don't like ranch, but the potatoes looked so good I had to try them. SO DELICIOUS!

I love potato casseroles and I'm going to make this one tonight. I love bacon in or on anything. so this sounds special. Will let you all know how it turns out. Desert Diva

Please do let us know how you liked it!

ok.. I made this for a family of 5.. 3 picky eaters.. but alllll bacon lovers!. Usually I make a recipe the first time specifically staying with the recipe.. to see if there is anything the picky eaters need changed.. the only thing I did different was.. well it calls for half a pound of bacon.. since the pkg was a pound..thats what I used (bacon lovers remember).. I have since been told this will be a regular dish..with steak with roast, with scrambled eggs.. needless to say.. it was a big hit..just depending on the size you cut the potatoes.. 40 minutes check them, so they do not get overdone,,potatoes cooked in 40 min.. giving plenty of time to cook the steak while the topping was melting allll gooey cheese. Great recipe!!

Hey girls, do you think you could use frozen cubed potatoes to make it more simple?

made this last night and we had sausage with more ranch dressing added. it was a big hit!

Bacon, colby jack cheese and sour cream

Sounds yummy...might have to try this for dinner tomorrow night.

Looks delicious. I love bacon! Nice touch adding ranch dressing!

The ranch dressing sounds interesting.

Looks and sounds delicious.

Sounds yummy and looks easy to make

this dish looks so good I want to try it soon.

I would like to try making this without the high sodium cream of mushroom soup and with lower-fat cheese--still sounds yummy!

wow yummy this looks really good

Looks yummy! A nice change up to plain baked potatoes.

this sounds really delicious!!

I am thinking this could be made the night before and then just bake the next day, the flavors might be better too.

These look yummy.

Sounds delicious! On my lists of " gotta try".

Looks yummy, can't wait to try them.

I think I should try this maybe with some chicken on the grill. MMMMMMMMMM

This will be my new dish for christmas !!

Oooh.This looks so good!

Sounds yummy!

These look delicious! I will have to try them soon, I bet even my picky son would eat this!

Plan on trying this recipe this weekend. Looks delicous. Has all the toppings I like on baked potatoes except for the ranch dressing mix. That is new to me but willing to try it. Will rate it once I try it.

This sounds and looks delicious! Will definitely be giving this a try!
