Sinful Spuds

Recipe by highcotton
READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Scrub potatoes well and pat dry; dice (unpeeled-- don't you just love it?!?) into a 9" x 13" casserole dish.
  • If preparing a smaller amount, be sure to use a smaller baking dish; the potatoes should form a fairly'solid' layer on the bottom of the dish.
  • Sprinkle generously with seasoned salt and several grinds of black pepper, tossing several times as seasonings are added so that potatoes are evenly coated.
  • Cut butter into thin slivers and dot evenly over top of potatoes.
  • Note: The original recipe called for a whole stick of butter, but I find that makes it greasy-- using 4-5 tablespoons will provide enough to prevent sticking but not overdo.
  • Cover dish with foil and bake for 1 hour, or until potatoes are tender.
  • Combine sour cream and ranch dressing mix, stirring well.
  • Remove potatoes from oven when done; spread sour cream mixture evenly over all.
  • Sprinkle evenly with grated cheese; return to oven, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes, until cheese melts.
