Take-out Tuesday, EZ Ranch Hashbrown Casserole

We do a lot of cooking at the beach house

but we don’t spend much time in the kitchen

I am always on the looking for fast prep recipes so I can get back to the fun

This potato casserole can be assembled in 5 minutes

and it will be devoured!

Stir the dry ranch dressing mix into the sour cream and cream of chicken soup

Add the thawed potatoes and part of the cheese

Put into a greased casserole dish and top with remaining cheese

Make it now, bake it later!

Everyone will say,

the potatoes are really good,

what is that yummy flavor… ๐Ÿ˜‹

note: this casserole may be large enough to serve 8-10, however the guys in my family, even the little boys, are big potato lovers and they pile this casserole on their plates, so in my family it serves 6-8


This cheesy potato casserole is a hit with all ages
