READY IN: 39mins


  • 1
    (24 ounce) package Simply Potatoes Traditional Mashed Potatoes
  • 1
    tablespoon dry ranch dressing mix
  • onion ring batter frying mix
  • oil (for frying)
  • 1
    pastry decorating bags or 1 gallon freezer ziploc bag


  • Peel film at corner of Simply Potatoes package to vent and heat on high for 3 minutes in microwave.
  • Completely remove film and stir.
  • Microwave on high for 1 additional minute.
  • Add 1 Tablespoon of Hidden Valley Ranch mix. Mix well. You can add more according to your taste.
  • Let cool just enough to touch. You want it a bit warm. It pipes out better when it's a little warm.
  • Load your piping bag with the mashed potatoes, (or Zip Lock Bag). Snip off the tip of the bag enough to have a nice size whole.
  • On a wax paper lined baking sheet, pipe mashed potatoes out into an "onion ring" shape. Nice plump circles.
  • Once all your rings are done, stick into freezer until firmly frozen. 30 minutes should work fine.
  • Preheat your deep fryer to 350.
  • Prepare your Onion Ring Batter according to the directions on the box.
  • Take a few out of the freezer at a time. Work in batches keeping the others frozen until ready to batter and fry.
  • Dip your potato ring into batter, shake off excess.
  • Fry 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
  • Note~you do not have to cook these right away. They keep frozen beautifully for future cravings.
