This is different and quite tasty. I used Jerusalem artichokes instead of potatoes, since we always get a big batch out of our garden and my husband loves them. Creamy and cheesy as can be, and a great side dish to just about anything.

I'm going back to eating REAL FOOD. No subtlety of flavor, no nutrition.

These were awesome. I was a little bit scared of the cheese and ranch together, and decided to make them anyway because hubby is a fan of both. Wow...this one is staying in the recipe books. Thanks for posting.

This is AWESOME! We have an over abundance of potatoes at our house and after eating this tonight, my husband literally asked if we could have it again tomorrow night and if we could use the other 10 pounds of potatoes! :) He was over exaggerating, of course, but they are so very good! The only thing I would say to do that I didn't do is spray the foil with PAM or something like that before you put the potatoes down. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks!!

My husband and daughter really liked these. I only thought they were okay. The ranch and the cheese match well together, but I didn't care for the Velveeta taste. I may try again with cheddar.

These were quite tasty, but bordered on being too rich. Nonetheless, the pan was empty after dinner.

Yummy! Put some chives on top when it comes out of the oven (it adds color and flavor)! I love this recipe. I've made it several times for my friends and family and they gobble it up! Thanks!

We add more a little more Ranch than the recipe calls for, and then we add shredded cheese after it is out of the oven. It is amazing! Definitely a huge hit!
