Loaded Crack Potatoes

Rated as 4.25 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."

  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.

I was mentally prepared to love it and become an addict. But honestly, it didn't quite make it for me. Something is missing and I can't quite put my finger on it. This much fat, carbs, and c...

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...

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

We loved this! I read from other reviews that it turned out dry. Not sure if that was really the case, but I added a can of cream of chicken soup to make sure it was extra creamy. It turned out ...
