  1. This was awesome. My whole family and friends loved them. So easy to make.
  2. I have made these many times, but forgot to write a review. They were a hit everytime that I have made them. I have made them with cream of potato soup, as called for, but have also used cream of chicken or cream of mushroom when I didn't have cream of potato on hand. Easy to make and always get lots of compliments!
  3. Sorry to say but I was really disappointed. The mixture of cream cheese, soup and dry ranch mix seemed really thick when I mixed it but thought after 6-8 hrs in crock pot - it would thin and make a "sauce". It didn't - just looked like kinda "globby" and didn't evenly coat the potatoes.Looked worse than it tasted. Maybe adding more liquid to thin the mixture would have helped.
  4. A winner! Gets gobbled up every time.
  5. I love ranch dressing, and I love potatoes. I couldn't wait to try this recipe. Boy was I disappointed! The smell of the ranch was so strong,that by the time it was done (which was WAY longer than stated here), I was sick of it. I thought maybe they would taste good despite the smell, but even my husband (who will eat ANY potato) left it in the fridge and didn't touch it. Not your fault Laura, but I do not recommend this. Shame on you BH&G!


I am from Michigan (metro-Detroit) area. No "human" kids, but I keep myself busy with my 2 five month old kittens adopted from a rescue league. Everyone said "you HAVE to have two!" If you're contemplating this for yourself, you may want to talk to me first...Do I have some stories for you! If I could escape from work for one month, you would find me on a Hawaiian beach, with a MaiTai in hand just soaking up the sun....
