3. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until tender and golden brown.

4. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the smoked sausage slices until browned, about 5-7 minutes.

5. In a separate bowl, mix together the ranch seasoning, sour cream, and mayonnaise.

6. In a large baking dish, combine the roasted potatoes, cooked sausage, and the ranch mixture. Stir well to coat everything evenly.

8. Bake in the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

9. Garnish with chopped green onions if desired, and serve hot.


For a spicier version, use a spicy smoked sausage or add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the ranch mixture.

You can use different types of cheese for variety, such as mozzarella or pepper jack.
