Loaded Crack Potatoes

Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"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 (hence the name). They are so good they are as addictive as crack; 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."

Making this today with a big spiral sliced ham and yeast rolls and pecan pie for dessert!

Made as written using the cubed hashbrowns and these were really good. I thought the ranch might overpower but it didn't whatsoever. There is just the right amount of bacon so that you taste the...

We found the sour cream and ranch dressing too overpowering. Next time I will try with increased cheese and less of the sour cream combo. Leftovers made a nice farmer's breakfast the next mornin...
