Great potato dish! Loved the addition of the ranch and the nutmeg was a nice addition too. I made half of the recipe in two smaller ramekins. The potatoes actually puffed up a little while baking which was a pleasant surprise. Nice way to spruce up humble instant potatoes - thanks for sharing the recipe!
