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.
I'll keep this one forever! Very delicious, savory, and creamy!
Made these for our end of season softball cookout. They were a HUGE hit!! A couple of the girls had FOUR servings each!! One of the coaches had at least that many and just raved about them! I used the potatoes o'brien in them and thought the pepppers gave them a bit of color and flavor. Other than that, I made them exactly as the recipe states. I'm sure these will be requested often now that we've tried them! Thanks for sharing!!
I only had hash browns with bell peppers so that's what I used. I think it added extra flavor to the potatoes. I also only used one envelope of dressing and added bacon. Next time my husband requested some green onions or chives be added. Very tasty as is. Thanks for posting! EDITED: Made these a second time for a Christmas buffet and accidentally bought DIP mix--not dressing, definitely made this much saltier, so pay attention when picking out the Ranch!
These are not terribly different from any other cheesy potato dish out there, but they are good! I halved the recipe and served these as a side with your filet mignon in puff pastry and it all made for a very satisfying meal. They reheat well the next day too - just had the leftovers for lunch! Thanks for sharing your version.
Very yummy! I reduced the yield by using one package of shredded hashbrowns and only one package of cream cheese, and 1/2 of the cheese. I also mistakenly used one .4 ounce package of Hidden Valley Ranch Mix instead of a 1 ounce size. I used both cans of soup. They turned out wonderful; just enough ranch flavor and not salty at all. Thanks for the suggestion to try these -- they are wonderful!
This was great!! Everyone liked it at the dinner I held. I forgot to thaw the potatoes so it took an extra 30 minutes to cook, but that was my fault. I will definitely make this again!!
We loved these potatoes. I used low fat sour cream to reduce the calories. This was a nice change from our typical hashbrown potato casserole.
