A hearty casserole made with dehydrated shredded potatoes, bacon bits, cheddar cheese, ranch, and diced onion.


  • 2 cups Dehydrated Potato Shreds
  • ¼ cup Dehydrated Minced Onion
  • 3 cups Boiling water
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) Cream of Potato Soup
  • 1 package (1 ounce) Ranch Seasoning Mix
  • 4 tablespoons Cheddar Cheese Powder (1/2 cup of shredded cheese can be subbed)
  • ¼ cup Bacon Bits
  • 3 tablespoons Freeze Dried Chives (Fresh Chives can be subbed if desired)
  • 1 teaspoon (9g package) Olive Oil

Prep Time: 10min | Cook Time: 30min

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F, this can also be done on the grill, simply preheat to 400 F.  If cooking outdoors without a thermometer, this dish can be prepared in a Dutch oven or cast-iron skillet topped with aluminum foil (cook time may vary).
  2. Cover the dehydrated hash browns and onions with the boiling water.  Allow to sit for 5-7 minutes.
  3. In a medium sized bowl combine the rehydrated potatoes with the cream of potato soup, ranch seasoning, cheese powder, bacon bits, and chives.  Mix the sauce into the potatoes and onions.
  4. Lightly oil a baking dish or cast iron with the olive oil.
  5. Transfer the mixture to the lightly oiled casserole dish or cast iron.
  6. Cover with a lid or aluminum foil and place in the oven.  Bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Remove the lid and continue to bake for 5-7 minutes until the top is golden brown. Enjoy.

We like the idea of this recipe tremendously and have been working to modify it to our preferred taste. To reduce saltiness (and I’m a salt-lover), we swapped the cheese powder for gruyere and the bacon bits for peppered bacon from the butcher counter. We eliminated the ranch seasoning completely. We also added broccoli florets. I would suggest cooking it longer than recommended to get a browned top. It’s now one of our favorites! My rating is based on our modifications.
