  • “I made these to go with Mama’s Supper Club Tilapia (recipe #53914).My 7 year old son loves ranch.LOVES it.He puts it on everything.He really liked these potatoes alot.The flavor of the ranch added that little extra “something”.”

  • “I’m not rating this as I’ve not tried it. My copy of this recipes is slightly different. It calls for 2 medium potoatoes baked, 1/2 c wise-bone extra thick ranch dressing, 10oz frozen chopped broccoli-thawed and drained, 8 slices cooked crumbled bacon. The rest is the same. Bake time is different it says to bake these 15 minutes at 425. Thanks for posting this recipe. Christine (internetnut)”

  • “I made these as a side to go with Recipe#47391 and lima beans.Now I’ve had twice baked potatoes with bacon,but I’ve never had them with onions.And I think adding the onions cooked in bacon drippings really made this dish.And the small amount of ranch dressing gave it just the right “zing”.This will be made again thank you so much for posting.”

  • “Oh boy – were these a hit!!!Was even asked when I was making them again before supper was over!”

  • “MMmm….yummy!I made these for dinner the other night when we had company over and they went really fast! The kids were arguing over who got an extra one! They are very filling….easy to make and they look impressive.Thanks for sharing!”
