    Wildflour's Note:

    Many versions of this...but this is how I make them! Being a meat and potaoes kind of girl, these are just one of my all-time favorite potatoes! The original version just wasn't very creamy.

      Very good and not too salty IMO. I couldn't stand to wait for the potatoes to thaw, so I tried to compensate by baking longer. I should have waited 80 minutes; some were cooked, some were still al dente. I loved how the ranch flavor wasn't overdone, but I think I'll stick with my tater tot version of this purely for the tot texture. Thanks Wildflour!

      Loaded with salt but we loved them anyway :) They were so delicious and we enjoyed them with our pork chops and applesauce!

      This recipe makes a lot of potatoes! It is a perfect dish for a potluck or any type of cookout/ party. Although, it was much too rich, creamy and salty for my taste, I would make it again for a get together. The changes that I will make is less ranch dressing and low sodium soup if I can find it. Also, I might use breadcrumbs instead of the fried onions. Thanks for sharing.
