“I found this recipe on a low carb website. It was very easy to make. I double the recipe along with the ranch but it was too ranchy. Will make it again but not double the rancy dressing. Prep time and cooking time are an estimate. I started everything and put the oven on warm and cooked it while I went to a movie and when I got home I turned it to 400, added dressing and cooked for 20 more minutes.”
