Loaded Crack Potatoes

Rated as 4.27 out of 5 Stars
44

"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), 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."

It is an awesome recipe. I would highly recommend for holiday parties. For all those victims out there; maybe you should have spent more time with your crack head kid instead of being so easily...

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...

I've made this three times each time I've added something different. The first time I added chopped green onions to give it color and a different dimension. The second time I pre sautéed thinly ...

I already left my real review. This review is simply to try to offset the ridiculous people giving it a bad review because of the name. Get the heck out of here! Who does that?! Boycott the site...

Pretty good until the cops showed up, asked what I was eating and i told em some LOADED crack potatoes. Writing this in jail but the recipe was pretty good. 5 Stars.

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!

If your kid is is on crack I feel for you. I was smoking that stuff in the 80s. The reason I am long ago free of it is because my dad never stopped making his sons work. We picked weeds and we s...

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 ...
