Potatoes are a great addition to any meal, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner, and whether they are mashed, scalloped, baked, or fried, potatoes are always sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! This "Crack Potatoes," recipe is what can only be described as addictive! Potatoes have always been a good old stand by vegetable for people over the centuries. People have been eating them for many generations and thinking up many different ways to cook them and eat them. Potatoes are a great source of nutrients as well, they have loads of potassium and dietary fibre, and they are very starchy, so they fill people up really easily. They are a great addition to any meal, and can take on a variety of different flavours so they can compliment practically any dish you are serving up for dinner, lunch, or even breakfast. For breakfasts, they are done hash brown style, cut up in to little pieces or shredded up, or for lunch as fries or potato salad. Then for dinner, people usually will mash or roast their potatoes, or bake them. You can even BBQ your potatoes, or make potato pancakes!
For this crack potatoes recipe, cheddar bacon ranch dip is used, or what the recipe creator from Plain Chicken refers to as "crack". She makes this recipe only during football season because it is very addictive, so she serves it when people are over to share it. The recipe was created after the famous cheddar bacon ranch dip was brought home, and she started wondering what she could do with it, other than eating it all by herself, so she decided to mix it into a big bag of frozen hash browns. The result is this most amazing potato casserole. The recipe is divided into three disposable foil pans and frozen until needed, so they always have the dish on hand when needed.
This simple crack potatoes recipe doesn't require many ingredients, only some cheddar cheese, ranch dip mix, and frozen hash brown potato (the shredded kind).
