  1. Add potatoes to a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the bacon slices in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook until crisp. Remove to paper towels.
  3. Wipe out the skillet, return to stove, and pour in vegetable oil. Stir in mushrooms and onion, and cook until onion is soft and translucent.
  4. When the potatoes are done, drain water, and place potatoes in a large bowl. Mash in butter and ranch dressing. With a potato masher or electric mixer, continue to mash until the potatoes are smooth. Stir in the mushrooms, onions, and crumbled bacon.

I was just lazy and threw the onions and mushrooms in a few minutes before the bacon was done cooking (I sliced my bacon before cooking) to save time. Other than that, I followed the recipe exa...

Excellent! Hubs and I both loved these potatoes, which I served with Classic Meatloaf and Chef John's Mushroom Gravy. It's perhaps just a matter of personal taste, but I think either olive oil...

This was great even though I had to use sour cream as I did not have any ranch dressing. I do now though, and am making it again tonight. I used the bacon fat to saute the mushrooms and onions...
