Ok - these were good, but I had to make some adjustments to make them taste how I thought they should. This recipe alone was good, but I replaced the cream with sour cream and added a touch of milk. Also, I put all of the potatoes into a baking dish, sprinkled with cheddar cheese and poured 3T. of melted margarine over the top...then they were DELICIOUS!!!!! Thanks.

These potatoes were very good but a little bit too thick for my tastes. I only put in half of the cream cheese and used milk instead of heavy cream. They were very tasty and I will add some ranch seasoning to my potatoes again, but if I use the cream cheese I will add more milk.

Good recipe. The ranch does add a little something. Just be careful to taste before you add salt.

These weren't bad-I think I could've cut back on the cream cheese-the taste of it was a little overwhelming. But, my husband loved them, and now prefers them over my regular mashed potatoes. Next time I'll cut back on the cream cheese a little, and maybe add a little bit of butter.

These are yummy! Everyone loved them and loved the flavor. It does not have an overpowering ranch flavor, just a really nice touch! Will definitly make again!
