Twice Baked Potato Casserole

This is a recipe my mom came up with Thanksgiving morning when she decided she didn't want to just bring plain potatoes to dinner. They turned out to be a hit! There were no leftovers, much to my dismay. The amazing (frustrating) thing about my mother is that she NEVER has recipes and can rarely tell you how much of something she puts in. This was the best I could get out of her. (Love you mom). 

8 potatoes
1 c shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for the top
1/3 stick butter, softened
3 oz sour cream
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
bacon bits
green onions


1. Boil the potatoes whole in their skins until soft. Peel potatoes. (You could probably do them regular mashed potato style too if you chose- already peeled and cubed then boiled until tender).
2. Add 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, soft butter, sour cream, and dressing mix and mash. Add a few sprinkles of bacon bits and green onions and mix. Whip the potatoes with a hand mixer until smooth.
3. Top with remaining shredded cheddar. Bake in a 350* oven for 25-30 minutes or until hot.
4. Top with more bacon bits and green onions, if desired.
