Since we have a short work week and the Fourth of July coming up, I wanted to re-share a couple of my favorite crowd pleasers. If you’re having a party on Friday, this potato casserole is one dish that you’ll want to make. The ULTIMATE side dish.
You may remember this from last year, but this is a potato casserole recipe I’ve been making since college and came from a set of my parent’s closest friends growing up. It’s super easy to make and feeds a ton of people. Party goers will be begging you for the recipe. Guaranteed.

- 3 russet potatoes
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 larger bottle of ranch dressing
- 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
- Plain potato chips or Ritz Crackers
- Peel the potatoes and slice about a quarter inch thick.
- Wash the onion and slice in very thin half moon slices.
- In a 9x9 baking dish, place a layer of potatoes in the bottom of the dish. Top with a layer of thinly sliced onion and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Add a layer of cheese and then drizzle with some ranch dressing. Repeat the layering process until you have used up all the ingredients.
- Top the casserole with crushed crackers or potato chips. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 for 1:30-2 hours until the potatoes are tender. Remove the foil the last 20 minutes of baking for the top to brown.
