    Juju Bee's Note:

    These potatoes are very tasty. The ranch dressing makes them unique and creamy. My mom sent me this recipe from her recipe box and my family loves them. It is our favorite side dish!

      Delicious recipe! I did add a few bacon bits and omitted the milk as I didn't think the potato mixture needed it. I also didn't have parmesan cheese so I sub with shredded cheddar cheese. Turned out great! Thanks for sharing the reicpe

      Wow! Delicious & decadent!! I normally stay away from these types of recipes because I think it's going to be a lot of work to scoop out the pulp & re-fill the potatoes but it was really quite easy! I did make some minor changes, though: I used ranch with bacon dressing (yummy!!) & I left out the onion, as a personal preference. I didn't use any of the milk either because it seemed like the potato filling was "goopy" enough without it. I also only needed less than half of the called for amounts of parmesan and oil.

      Yeah what a great recipe and so easy. I added extra ranch instead of milk and I cut the recipe in half. They were so yummy. Thanks for posting.
