Cheesy Ranch Potatoes
Cheesy Ranch Potatoes. It’s one of those recipes that just needs no introduction, but I’ll give it a short little one anyway. Imagine with me, will you? Comforting potatoes mixed with creamy cream cheese, seasoned with ranch, and topped with gooey melted cheddar. It’s a recipe that everyone will love. Cheesy Ranch Potatoes are perfect to bring to a potluck or holiday as a dish to pass, or you can throw in some meat, like Kielbasa or chicken, and make a meal out of it. So versatile and so good.
To make you own Cheesy Ranch Potatoes you’ll need about 5-7 medium russet potatoes, butter, sour cream, cream cheese, Ranch seasoning mix, and shredded cheese. You can leave the skin on the potatoes or peel it off. If you’re leaving it on, be sure to scrub the potatoes to get the dirt off. Cut the potatoes into cubes, and dump them into a greased 9″x 13″ baking dish. Cut the butter into thin slices and place on top of the potatoes. Cover the dish and bake at 325° for about an hour, until the potatoes are tender.
While the potatoes are cooking, you can prep the rest of the ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, add your softened cream cheese, sour cream, and ranch mix. Whisk it all together until it’s nice and smooth. You can also stir in an extra cup of shredded cheese if you like your potatoes extra cheesy (and who doesn’t, honestly?).
When the potatoes are cooked and soft, add them to your large mixing bowl with the cream cheese mixture, and gently stir to fully coat the potatoes. Pour the cheesy potato mixture back into the baking dish, and top with 1-2 cups shredded cheddar. Cook for an additional 15 minutes, until the potatoes are heated through and the cheese is gooey and melted.
Serve warm, and enjoy all that cheesy, comfort food goodness!
