Ranch Whipped Potatoes

Let me just talk for a second about how much we love these mashed potatoes… My kids have a serious thing for Ranch dressing so these creamy whipped potatoes are a major hit in our family. They are decadent, full of savory Ranch flavor, and are topped with salty, crispy, drool inducing fried onions. Are they healthy? Probably not. Do I care? Not one creamy, crunchy iota…
