Excellent potato recipe Lorac. I didn't use quite the whole package of ranch dressing mix as my family is very salt sensitive. There was still plenty of flavour.I used light sour cream and 2% milk and they were still very creamy and delicious. Thanks again Lorac for another keeper.

Wonderful - family and friends give it high rating. Agree it has a stuffed potato taste - may want to heat thru before serving as the sour cream and milk cooled them right down.

These were quite delicious. They has a stuffed potato skin kind of flavor...might try adding some cheddar next time. The whole family enjoyed them and they went great along with the grilled steak that I served them with. Thanks for a different way to eat mashed potatoes :)

Wow!!! These were simple but packed full of flavor. My family of five really loved these.I served it with Yooper's To Die Crockpot Roast #27208. To cut back on calories, I used low-fat dressing, butter and skim milk. A real keeper. Great to serve when you have company to impress.

I used Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix. Good but not quite what I was expecting. The potatoes turned out to be a little bit too tangy for our taste. It might be better with less sour cream.

I omitted the bacon because I didn't have cooked bacon and I was at the last minute. The potatoes were so good. Even in leftovers they are great. Thanks Lorac :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game

These are really good. I served them with Ranch Chicken and corn and it was a very nice meal. Thank you so much for sharing, my family really liked the added bacon. Also, I added a little of the bacon fat to the potatoes and just eliminated the butter. So good.

I found these to be delicious but a tad bit salty, so I think next time I will cut back to 1/2 pkt. of the Ranch dressing mix and see if that works better for us. Thanks for this recipe Lorac!
