I had been searching for a dish for a picnic party I was hosting and had come across this recipe, the ingredient that really hooked me was the ranch dressing packet, I knew it had to be good! Not only is it delicious but it's so super easy to prepare, something that's always a plus!

*Note: This dish can be made ahead of time, just add 15 minutes to baking time~
