A great alternative to the humdrum potato salad.

What a wonderful, decadent recipe! I made this for our Father's Day cookout and it got rave reviews. Next time I will chop the potatoes in smaller pieces, a personal preference. You won't be sorry you tried this one!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 -8 medium red potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • 12 cup sour cream
  • 12 cup ranch salad dressing (not dry powder)
  • 14 cup bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • Topping

  • 12 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups corn flakes, crushed slightly
  • 14 cup butter, melted


  1. Cook the potatoes until tender. I usually bake them in the oven the night before wanting to prepare this dish, but you can also boil them. Quarter the potatoes, leaving the skin on.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, ranch dressing, bacon, parsley, and the 1 cup of cheese. Toss quartered potatoes in dressing mixture and place into a greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Top with the 1/2 cup of the cheese.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the corn flakes and butter; sprinkle over the casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.
