Ingredients (13)

Compound Butter

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (7)

  1. 1

    Start by peeling and chopping 3 large russet potatoes one at a time. Immediately upon chopping, place the pieces into a saucepot filled with water (off the heat).

  2. 2

    Salt the water and bring it all up to a simmer. Once at a simmer, cook the potatoes for 15–20 minutes, until a paring knife inserted into a potato chunk and twisted effortlessly cracks the cube in half, in which the potatoes are ready to drain.

  3. 3

    Drain the potatoes and use a potato ricer to rice the potatoes back into a saucepot.

  4. 4

    Once all of the potato pieces have been riced, add in ¼ cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, 1 cup of crispy chopped bacon, 1 tablespoon of finely minced chives, an optional teaspoon of cayenne pepper, chopped scallions and a few hefty shakes of Hidden Valley® Ranch seasoning.

  5. 5

    Add 4 ounces of grated cheddar and a few generous twists of freshly ground black pepper and mix until thoroughly combined.

  6. 6

    Ranch Compound Butter:

    Add a hefty shake of Hidden Valley® Ranch seasoning to ½ a stick of unsalted butter and whisk to combine.

  7. 7

    Plate a bowl of potatoes and top with even more garnishes: shredded cheese, bacon, scallions and a big scoop of Hidden Valley® Ranch compound butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new twist on mashed potatoes I made this with hand mashed potatoes and it was delicious! I skipped on the pepper because I'm not one for spicy foods. The ranch gave these potatoes an over the top flavor additive that we all really enjoyed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mashed potatoes ever! I not only make these for a side dish but sometimes make them as meal. So many flavors.
