2 (16 oz) containers of sour cream
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 (3 oz) bags real bacon bits
2 packages Ranch Dip mix
1 large bag frozen hash brown potatoes
Combine first 4 ingredients, mix in hash browns. Spread into a 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 400 for 45-50 min.
**Personally, I thought this dish was WAY too salty. Everyone else said it was just fine to them. Regardless, I think I'll try it next time with 1 Ranch Dip mix & 1 Ranch Salad Dressing mix (because the dressing mix is less salty).**
