OhMyStinkinHeck! I can’t seem to get enough of these potatoes, it’s like a really bad habit that you want to break but when no one is looking you go back for more. And more. And more. And more. It has gotten to where when people are coming for dinner they ask “are you making those really good potatoes?” Ohhh, I most certainly can! (shhh, don’t tell, because in my book any excuse to make them is a GREAT excuse!)
They are easy to make and you will be so glad you did. Life just wouldn’t be complete without having these at least once, or a thousand times!
Mix together the cheese, bacon, sour cream and ranch. I just mix mine all in the pan I am going to cook it in…and I use a lot of aluminum pans. I have a friend that works for the company that makes them and can get a really good deal which makes for easy clean up and they can be recycled!
It’s going to look like a gloppy mess, but I assure you, they are divine!
Add in the hashbrowns and mix well.
Bake on 400 degrees for about an hour.
Let’s go eat.
2 (16oz) containers sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 (3oz) bags real bacon bits
2 packages Ranch Dip mix
1 large (28 – 30oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes – shredded kind
Combine first 4 ingredients, then mix in hash browns. Spread into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 400 for about 60 minutes. If you want to make several, these freeze great, then just take out of the freezer and bake when you are ready.
