These are great for breakfast with some Canadian bacon or on the side with a big salad for lunch.
Got procssed flour and dairy which in itself would disqualify it for Phase 1 FF diet (not sure about ranch seasoning and baking powder).

These are so good! They are definitely my new dinner roll to take to holidays! Next time I will try to use a little less of the dry Ranch because it was a little salty and maybe shredded cheese instead of cubes. I think then they will be really close to Red Lobster's!

Just made these with shredded cheese instead of cubed cheese, and they are VERY similar to the ones at Red Lobster!!
