I also used Yukon Gold potatoes like another reviewer did, mainly because they were all I had on hand. I followed the recipe exactly (other than the kind of potatoes) including the boiling, and they still came out dry and unflavorful, even with the ranch dressing, bacon, and cheese. It smelled absolutely fantastic while it was cooking, so it was hugely disappointing for them to end up tasting so blah once they came out of the oven. I didn't see anything about salting the potatoes while they were boiling, could that have been the problem? I didn't add any, as the recipe didn't call for it, and it seemed like none was needed...until after we tasted them. After cooking, no amount of salt made them better.
If I try this recipe again with the 'right' potatoes, I will gladly add a new review if the difference is dramatic.
