This is an absolute favorite with my husband's family and is one of my most frequently requested meals at home. Also great for a crowd because everyone can fix their "spud" to their own liking.
Ground beef- seasoned, browned, and drained
Ranch dressing- we love the Hidden Valley Ranch kind that you buy in the packets and make at home. It is strangely better than the bottled kind!
Bake potatoes and cut open on a plate. Top with meat and cheese and then pile on the "fixins." So good and so very easy!
