Ingredients

6 cups water

2 pounds (4 cups) peeled potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

1/3 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon dry ranch salad dressing mix

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine water, potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt in 4-quart saucepan. Cook over high heat until water comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain.

  2. STEP 2

    Mash potatoes with potato masher or electric mixer, gradually adding 2/3 cup milk. Stir in sour cream and dressing mix.

  3. STEP 3

    Spread potatoes evenly into 1 1/2-quart casserole. Pour remaining milk over potatoes. Do not mix. Dot with butter. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake uncovered 20 minutes; stir. Continue baking 20-30 minutes or until heated through.

Tip #1

For faster heating, place potatoes into casserole dish. Microwave, covered, stirring 2 or 3 times, 15-18 minutes or until heated through.

Tip #2

Variation: To prepare 12 servings, double all ingredients except use 1 1/4 cups milk. Cook potatoes as directed above. Mash potatoes with potato masher or electric mixer, gradually adding 1 cup milk. Stir in sour cream and dressing mix. Spread potatoes evenly in 3-quart casserole. Pour remaining milk over potatoes. Continue as directed above.
