Ranch House Potatoes

2 pounds medium red potatoes
2/3 c. sour cream
1 can cream of potato soup
2/3 c. Ranch salad dressing
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
6-9-slices of bacon fried & crumbled
1/4 c. chopped onion
2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Boil potatoes in a large pot, until tender (about 15 minutes).  Drain and cut into chunks (leave the skin on)
Fry bacon till crisp. Remove from pan and crumble. 
Melt butter (I add a couple tablespoons of the bacon drippings as well). Saute onion. (cook until onion is clear)
In a large bowl mix together the sour cream, soup, dressing, bacon, butter, onion and 1 1/2 cup cheese.
Add the potatoes and lightly toss until the potatoes are evenly coated. 
Put in a 9x13 pan
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the casserole.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 - 45 minutes.

*I also have baked this in a crock pot for 3-4 hours on low heat.
**You can experiment with the Ranch Dressing, I have used the Fiesta Ranch dressing for a spicier flavor
