Best potatoes you will ever make, guaranteed! This recipe feeds a lot of people. I took it to a potluck and the pan came home licked clean, literally! People were going back for seconds and thirds and disappointed when it was all gone. This is a totally addictive potato recipe, you just can't stop eating them! It's a cinch to toss together and goes great with chicken, beef or pork, heck it would even make your sneakers taste good. Recipe can easily be halved to feed a family of four.

Ingredients

  • cooking spray

  • 1 (32 ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed

  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream

  • 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided, or more to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 13X9-inch baking pan with cooking spray or butter.

  2. Combine hash browns, sour cream, bacon, ranch mix, and 1 cup Cheddar cheese in a large bowl; stir until well mixed. Spread into baking pan; cover with aluminum foil.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil; sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese evenly across potatoes. Bake until cheese is bubble and lightly browned around the edges, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use either shredded or cubed hash browns for this, I prefer the shredded.
