Come Back Potatoes
2 packages frozen hash brown potatoes (the cubed type)
1 16 ounce container sour cream + 1 8 ounce sour cream
1/2 cup half and half * Add 1/4 cup more, if needed to make the mixture creamier
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 packets Ranch salad dressing mix
*8-10 slices bacon, crisp and crumbled
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. salt
1 bunch green onion, chopped
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, until good and hot.
*For easy clean up (and a great result!)- Cook bacon in a 400 degree oven. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place the bacon across the tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until good and crisp. Let cool and drain the grease off. Chop the bacon in small pieces.
