Easy to make, great for potluck picnics, and you make it the night before so you can grab and go.

  • While the potatoes simmer, cook the bacon. Place the bacon in a large skillet; cook over medium-high heat until brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble.

  • Combine the cooked potatoes, crumbled bacon, Cheddar cheese, and green onions in a large bowl. Fold in the ranch dip. Refrigerate overnight.

This is a great recipe. I was in a huge hurry so instead of cooking bacon I used an entire bottle of real bacon bits. I also used an entire bottle of "Hidden Valley" ranch dressing which ended up being 16 oz. I dumped an entire bag of shredded cheddar cheese which is about 2 cups and mixed it all together. I was only able to refrigerate it for about 2 hours and it was still delicious. I'm sure it will be even better after it has set overnight. Read More

I doubled the bacon and the green onions and I used my own ranch dip. I didn't have time to refrigerate it overnight but I did make it early this morning before it got hot and stuck it to set in the fridge all day until dinner. This was good but I think it all depends on how spiced up your ranch is. Make sure you taste test it to make sure it dosen't need more spices before you serve it. Read More
