  1. Excellent recipe! I added ranch dressing (liquid version) and it was very tasty. Yummy stuff!
  3. This was really good:) I served this at a church dinner and they loved it:) Very tasty! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe:)

  6. These weren't bad-I think I could've cut back on the cream cheese-the taste of it was a little overwhelming. But my husband loved them and now prefers them over my regular mashed potatoes. Next time I'll cut back on the cream cheese a little and maybe add a little bit of butter.
  7. Good recipe. The ranch does add a little something. Just be careful to taste before you add salt.
  8. These are yummy! Everyone loved them and loved the flavor. It does not have an overpowering ranch flavor just a really nice touch! Will definitly make again!
  9. These potatoes go great with just about anything. My kids absolutely love them!
