This was not at all what I would have expected! I didn't put too much ranch dressing for fear that it would consume the dish, so I lightly covered the potatoes. This was really good - different and tasty. i had my reservations but I will definitely make this again!! Thanks!

This recipe was very good, but I tend to get lazy, especially when cooking for a lot of people. I tossed the sliced potatoes with the ranch dressing and the cheddar cheese, and after putting it into the pan I topped with some real bacon bits and chopped green onions. Tastes like a loaded baked potato.

Just made this for dinner and it was delicious! I used reduced fat ranch dressing and lower fat cheese (simply because that was on hand) and it was great. I'll make this again!
