5 medium to large russet baking potatoes cubed into large bite size pieces
4 tablespoons butter melted
2 cups Gouda shredded
2/3 cup ranch dressing
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
2 scallions sliced (about 1/4 cup)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange potatoes in casserole dish lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. I used a 9 x 9 inch casserole dish. Pour butter over potatoes and toss gently to coat. Bake covered for one hour. Remove potatoes from oven.
In small bowl mix 1 1/2 cups Gouda, ranch dressing, onion powder, garlic powder and salt & pepper. Spoon over baked potato cubes and toss gently. Do not worry if all of them do not have the mixture on them. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of Gouda cheese and scallions. Bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until the cheese melts and is lightly browned.
