Ranch Potato Casserole Recipe

Ranch Potato Casserole Recipe

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."

"I've made this for several cook outs and parties and everybody just loved this! I think I always add a little extra Ranch dressing to this than what's called for but hey...It's Ranch dressing for petes sakes and who doesn't like Ranch dressing? Try it for your next gathering or simply for your evening meal at home. Your family will be glad you did!"

"This was very tasty and easy to prepare! I would prepare this again as a side dish - with the addition of a meat it could be a main dish. I made two substitutions to accommodate what I had on hand: in place of sour cream I used a little more ranch and some milk; in place of the corn flakes I used crushed tortilla chips. Good recipe!"

"Every liked this recipe. I used large potatoes instead of medium, so decided to double the other ingredients to make more sauce, which made the dish a little more creamy than pictured. Also very good a few days later as leftovers."

"My family really liked this. I think next time I'll cut the cornflake topping in half, though. It reminds me of stuffed baked potatoes but in a casserole."
