Ouida Potatoes

Belle has a good friend, Ouida, (Wee-da) who gave us this recipe, and it has become a favorite.  It's quick, easy, and a big hit at gatherings, whether in the shop at a church gathering.  It gets rave reviews, and is easy-peasy.
Ouida Potatoes.
3 lbs red potatoes. Green onions, chopped for garnish. Bacon bits. Regular bottle Ranch Dressing. Grated cheese, any type.
Wash those potatoes, and cut them in bite-sized pieces.  Boil them till they're fork-tender.  You've done all the cooking you're going to do.
In a casserole dish, put the drained potatoes, hot.  Add ranch dressing till they're covered.  Garnish with green onion and bacon bits, then cover it all with grated cheese.  Set aside.  In about five minutes, the heat from the potatoes will soften the cheese.  Serve.
Seriously, that's all there is to it.  If you can boil potatoes and cut up green onions, you have this covered.   Don't make it any harder than it is.

As Pawpaw says, it's dirt simple, relatively cheap, and a big hit at family gatherings/church pot-luck dinners/etc.

The only modification I make is to add chicken bullion to the boiling water for extra flavor.
I've made the dish more times than I can remember.

I don't have a low cost covered dish in my repertoire. Looks like I might have to try this out.
