  • First boil your potatoes in a pot until they are soft enough that you can easily mash them in to bit sized chuncks (mine took about 30 minutes) then drain. Easiest way to check them is to use a knife and poking them while they boil.
  • After draining put back in to your pot and mash potatoes into pieces with a potato masher and then let potatoes cool for about 30 minutes
  • While potatoes are cooling cook your bacon until crispy then drain on a paper towel. I cook mine on the stove but you can cook it however you like to best, stove, microwave or oven.  Once cooled crumble into pieces.
  • Dice your large red onion and set aside
  • Once your bacon is cooled and your potatoes are cooled add the bacon, cheese, LiteHouse Ranch Dressing and onions to the chunked potatoes and stir well. Making sure everything is coated well with the dressing.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
