Loaded Hash Brown Potato Casserole

Pinned onto my MMM Food board on pinterest is this loaded hash brown potato casserole dish. 

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!  
Quoted from the blog Plain Chicken on Blogger
Needing to change up the boring meals as of late, I decided to try this out. We had my fiances 12 year old daughter this past Sunday and she is kind of a picky eater. I thought what kid doesn’t like smothered potatoes? So I whipped up a batch of these. 
Served with dutch oven braised boneless pork ribs, and peas with butter.
RECIPE:
2 (16oz) containers sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 (3oz) bags real bacon bits
2 packages Ranch Dip mix
1 large (28 – 30oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes – shredded kind
 
Combine first 4 ingredients, mix in hash browns.  Spread into a 9×13 pan.  Bake at 400 for 45-60 minutes.   
Side note… when opening the lid to the dutch oven pot straight out of the oven DO NOT I repeat DO NOT forget that there will be steam!!!!!!! Hence the following picture warning.

Nothing Fancy

So nothing fancy this weekend or yesterday.

Sunday I made boring ol’ hot dogs, macaroni salad and pork n beans.

Yesterday was a tad bit more gourmet. I made ranch breaded pork loin chops, mashed potatoes and green beans. 

How ever for dessert Sunday night I did make crescent rolls smeared with a wonderful chocolate raspberry jam homemade from a vendor at my local farmers market.

Absolutely sinful!!
