Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great I didn't so much follow this recipe as I did use it for inspiration. I needed to know how much to add to plain instant potatoes. I added 2.5 T for 6 servings of potatoes. I used 3 T of Heavy cream instead of half and half as well. They turned out so tasty!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sure crowd pleaser I’ve yet to disappoint every time I make these. They’re perfect as is, you don’t need to add butter or ranch or gravy & you’ll find yourself scraping the last of it off your plate. Use a hand held electric mixer for super smooth & creamy mashed potatoes every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious This recipe is so easy and super delicious. My family absolutely loves it. I like to mix in some chopped up bacon and put some shredded cheese on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy and so good I have been making these for quite a while, but forgot to post a review. This recipe produces very delicious results. I like to add a little more butter, but that's up to you. Also, if you are serving mashed potatoes and there is someone that doesn't like ranch (yeah, I know) the shaker product really comes in handy. You can season to taste, while others can do without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty side Ranch and mashed potatoes! Quick and easy to mix up and oh so tasty! The ranch adds so much flavor compared to plain mashed taters. Once you try this you'll never eat them without ranch again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor change to mashed potatoes. I bought this last week and I am so glad I did. My family loves ranch and potatoes so it was fantastic addition to go into potatoes. I didn't need that much of the ranch that the recipe called for but I added more to my own bowl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite mashed potatoes This is, by far, my favorite way to eat mashed potatoes. It gives them an irresistible flavor and they come out super creamy! I like to add some ranch dressing to the top as well instead of gravy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hidden Valley Surprise Potatoes My husband and I love potatoes. When I made this my husband really sat up and took notice. He actually confessed that all along, for 25 years, he found potatos pretty bland and uninteresting, yhis was different!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Original Ranch Mashed Potatoes I highly recommend this recipe but I make it a little different as my husband doesn't like any milk product, not allergic just doesn't like it. Instead of the cream I use water & a whole packet of Hidden Valley, a stick of butter & sprinkle chives on top , no one misses the milk
