If you know me (and if you read this blog frequently you can pretty well say that you do...) you likely know that I like a good KRAFT recipe... but since they usually use brand name products or items that I usually don't buy when I make their recipes I am typically
them not really making them...
So here is another "inspired by" recipe that I found through Kraft.
This is a super simple recipe that you can make ahead or make on the spot. The original recipe can be found here.
However this is how I made them...
6 potatoes (peeled and cut into chunks)
1/3 cup ranch dressing
1/2 to 3/4 cup of cheese shredded
(I used cheddar but you could mix it up with your favorite cheese)
Bacon bits (optional)
Boil potatoes, mash with ranch dressing, press cooled mashed potatoes in an oven safe dish and top with cheese, bacon bits and chives if using.
Chill in the fridge over night or bake "on the spot".
Bake at 350 for 30 mins until heated through if made ahead
at 350 for 20 mins if made "on the spot".
This makes for an easy side or a great pot luck dish that you just warm up once you reach the party!
And its super yummy too!
