My daughter urged me to send in the recipe for this casserole. I make it often, and it's especially good in place of baked potatoes when you're having barbecued pork chops, steak of chicken. We operate a busy fruit farm. I cook every day for my family, so I appreciate this dish for another reason—I can put it together a day ahead and bake it just before we're ready to eat. —Lydia Schnitzler, Kingsburg, California

"Sounds great! Wouldn't chopped chicken be great in it, too? A meal in one."

"This is delicious! I had left over baked potatoes and used them in place of the reds and added a chopped medium onion. I also doubled the ranch dressing and sour cream for a creamer casserole."

"This was pretty good. I think I'll try the topping next time with Ritz crackers, or maybe crushed potato chips for added potato/salty taste. I'll make this again."

"We have a real winner here! My husband and I both just loved it. Next time I'll make extra and take to my daughter. The bacon is a great addition and my entire family are ranch addicts, so what's not to like?"

"A delicious change of pace from my usual potato casserole. My family doesn't like a topping on potato casseroles so I left off the corn flakes and butter."
