Perhaps our most superlative-worthy dish. Rich and creamy, gooey and cheesy, zesty, bright and hearty. Grab a big fork for this Hidden Valley® Ranch gem that goes big on everything. Load up your plate, fill up your tummy. This HVR mashed potato recipe is the real deal.
8 ounces bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 stick butter, melted
1½ cups sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2–3 scallions, sliced thin
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil; then reduce to a simmer and cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and put them back into the pot. Add the butter, sour cream and ranch seasoning. Mash well until everything is somewhat smooth and combined (ok to leave some chunks if you like it that way); then fold in the bacon and half of the chopped scallions.
Spread the potatoes into a 9x13-inch casserole dish and top with the cheese. Cover and bake for about 10 minutes until cheese is melted; then uncover and finish cooking for another 5 minutes. Garnish with remaining scallions and serve hot.
