BLD Cheesy Potatoes

I really had a lot of trepidation about posting this recipe.  The main reason, it isn't photogenic, but man-oh-man, it's so dang good!

One our neighbors told me her children were over the moon about this dish.  We all like finding new really good recipes, so I have to pass this on to all of you, but maybe you already know.

How can you go wrong with bacon, cheese potatoes, and Ranch seasoning?  You can't.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner (BLD) you have a hearty crown pleasing side.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

1  - 30 oz. package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
2  - envelopes Ranch Dip Mix (powder)
2 - 16 oz. containers sour cream
2  - cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 - 6 oz. jar Hormel Real Bacon Bits

In a very large bowl, combine the sour cream and the Ranch Dip Mix and the bacon bits until completely blended.  Fold in the thawed hash brown potatoes.  Spread the mixture into a 9x13 baking dish and bake  for approximately 45 to 50 minutes.

This is very similar to a hash brown casserole I make, but yours has bacon- yum. Everythings better with bacon!

This is one of those things that I'd stand over the bowl and eat until I was sick! :)
