Audra's notes for this recipe:
We've had this at our Family Reunion for years! It's always been a hit with everyone. I always bake the potatoes a day or two before and refrigerate.It makes cooking time very short!

Directions

1
Bake potatoes and refrigerate the night before. There easy to handle when you go to slice them.
2
Mix ranch dressing, green chilies & sour cream the night before. It gives it time to marry the flavors. But not necessary.
3
Also go ahead and fry the bacon and crumble it. Stick in the refrigerate over night.
4
Also slice the green onions and put in refrigerator.
5
The more you do the night before the easier it is the day of the BBQ or party! It's easy peasy!
6
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
7
Slice potatoes with a mandolin. That way potatoes warm evenly. Use a casserole dish 9X13 or larger if you have one. Spray with PAM or what ever you like or even butter it. You don't want it to stick.
8
Put a layer of potatoes,butter, sour cream then cheese. Till the last layer that's when you use the bacon. The green onions go on after it comes out of oven. Sometimes I just sit aside the green onions in a bowl and let them help them selves as some don't like onions at all! Enjoy!

Bake for 35-45 minutes

This sounds like it is very good, and I will likely try it. PLEASE, PLEASE be VERY, VERY careful using a mandolin. I was using mine a few days age, my thumb slipped off the hand guard, and I almost cut the end of my thumb off. If you are not used to using a mandolin, you might want to use a chef's or butcher knife instead of the mandolin.
