    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These potatoes are simply heavenly, start with 1/2 package of the ranch dressing and add in more at the end of mixing.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 medium russet potatoes, peeled and halved
    • 1/2 cup butter, cut into cubes
    • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1 (1 ounce) hidden valley dry ranch dressing mix (start with 1/2 package adding in more to taste)
    • milk (optional and as needed for extra creaminess, or use whipping cream) (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the potatoes in boiling water until fork-tender; drain and place in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      To hot potatoes add in cubed butter, cream cheese, sour cream and 1/2 package dry dressing mix; at low speed using an electric mixer beat until until the potatoes are semi chunky (low speed only to start as the potatoes are hot).
    3. 3
      Continue beating at HIGH speed until the potatoes are smooth and very fluffy.
    4. 4
      At this point do a taste-test if you desire a more stronger ranch flavor then add in more dry dressing mix until desired flavor is achieved, you may also add in milk or whipping cream for a more creamy taste (start with a small amount and add in more).
    5. 5
      TO MAKE AHEAD; spread the potato mixture into a greased 13 x 9-inch pan and refrigerate up to 1 day, remove from fridge about 1 hour before baking, then set oven to 350°F and bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until hot.

      Very very good mashed potatoes. I only used about 4 tsps. of the Ranch seasoning and that was plenty for us. Left out the sour cream also because I didn't think it needed any thing else added. Halved the recipe also. Very rich and creamy. Thanks Kitz. Made for I Recommend. :)

I love the that these can be made ahead -- thinking about my soon to be born twins THAT will be most important! lol! I also had a handful of grated cheese to use up so threw that in too... GREAT!!!
