Happy Labor Day to those of you celebrating!!

I was actually not even going to post today. And I had originally planned to not even post about these potatoes. But then I ate them. And I loved them. And I decided that you need to try them.

    These were so addictive you just cannot stop at a spoonful. Loved the addition of ranch dressing that took this to something special. Next time will leave the foil off to crisp up the potatoes but otherwise a very tasty and different way if serving your spuds. Thanks so much or sharing:)
