Cheddar Ranch Bacon Mashed Potatoes

It's a Monday and... it's a Monday. Yep, a Monday through and through. When it comes to days like this I crave comfort food. Mashed potatoes are one of those! Doctored up with sour cream, bacon and cheese... fattening and comforting. Just what the doctored ordered.

1 small dry package Ranch dressing mix
1 cup sour cream
1 3/4 cups milk
6-7 large potatoes, cleaned, chopped, cooked until soft
6 cooked and crumbled bacon slices
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
sliced green onions

Mash the cooked potatoes (or use about 1 1/2 lbs. of frozen mashed potatoes or make from a box and reduce milk below). To the potatoes add 1 dry package Ranch dressing mix, 1 cup sour cream, and 1 - 1 3/4 cups milk to the consistency you want adding 1/3 cup as needed. Stir in 6 cooked and crumbled bacon slices and 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese. Garnish with sliced green onions or chopped chives. Serve!Print Friendly and PDF
