Twice Baked Ranch Potatoes

I don’t know how things are at your house, but at my house my children could drink ranch salad dressing.

They also love twice baked potatoes.

So I figured, why not combine the two!

Twice Baked Ranch Potatoes
Author:
Serves: 5-6
Ingredients
  • 5-6 russet potatoes, baking sized
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup shredded cheese, plus more for topping
  • 2 tablespoons powered ranch dressing mix
  • milk to thin if needed
  • salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Scrub the potatoes and place in the oven.  Cook for about 45 mins or until fork tender. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  3. Slice each potato in half lengthwise and scoop the inside out into a bowl, being careful to leave a thin layer of potato in the skin and not puncture a hole in it. (Note: I like to cook up 6 potatoes, but only end up stuffing 5 of the potato skins so they are extra full!)
  4. To the potato pulp in the bowl, add the the butter, sour cream, cheese, and ranch dressing mix. Give it a good mash with a potato masher or if you want it really fine you can use a hand mixer. Season with salt and pepper
  5. Scoop the mixture back into the potato skins and top with a little more cheese.  Place on a cookie sheet and put back in the oven until the cheese on top is melted and the potatoes are warmed thru.
  6. Eat!
