Cheesy Ranch Hash-Brown Potatoes

I found this recipe on Paul Deen’s magazine website and I thought it sounded really good! I cut the recipe in half since there are only two of us. I used a bag of bacon pieces instead of frying up bacon and I also used a little more cheese than the recipe called for – I mixed in 1 cup of cheese and topped it with about ½ cup of cheese. I liked this. Next time I would add more sour cream – probably double it.


Cheesy Ranch Hash-Brown Potatoes

(Printable Recipe)

  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 (1-ounce) package dry ranch salad dressing mix
  • 2 (2.8oz) packages bacon pieces
  • 1 (30-ounce) package frozen country-style hash-brown potatoes, thawed

Preheat oven to 350˚. Lightly grease a 1-1/2-quart baking dish.
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, butter, dressing mix, and bacon. Add hash browns, stirring to combine. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish.
Bake 30 minutes; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 10 minutes more, or until hot and bubbly.

  1. Looks good though I think I'd leave out the ranch packet as I'm not fond of ranch dressing. I second the addition of sour cream!
