One of our favorite dips is Cheddar Bacon Ranch dip, or what I refer to as "Crack".  I usually only make it during football season because it is HIGHLY addictive.  I only made this once this football season and  I forgot to take it to the tailgate.  I left it in my parent's refrigerator!  I was devastated!  

I took the dip back home and started thinking about what to do with it - other than eat it all by myself.  I decided to mix the dip into a big bag of frozen hash browns.  The result? A fantastic potato casserole!


2 containers Sour cream; 16 ounces each
2 cups Cheddar cheese; shredded
2 bags real bacon bits; 3 ounces each
1 packages Ranch Dip mix
1 large frozen hash brown potatoes - shredded; (28-30oz) bag

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Combine first 4 ingredients, mix in hash browns.  

Spread into a 9x13 pan.  

Bake at 400 for 45-60 minutes.  


*I divided the potatoes into 3 small 7x7 disposable foil pans and froze them. I wrapped them with plastic wrap and then foil.*

Because of some helpful cooking friends, I have changed 2 packages of Ranch Dip to 1 package. Thanks everyone

Delicious! Could potentially make this even without the ranch if you wanted. I pan-fried my own bacon and then broke it up. The bottom tended to brown more than the top, FYI... so watch the bottom as well as the top when baking...
