  • Cook's Notes:

    You can use regular bacon if turkey bacon is not preferred, but do look for a low-sodium bacon. Also a store brand ranch dressing mix, check for the sodium content.

    To make your own low-sodium ranch mix: Stir together 2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk blend for baking, 1 tablespoon minced onions, 1 tablespoon dried parsley, 1/2 tablespoon dried minced chives, a pinch of low-sodium salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, 1/8 teaspoon paprika, and 1/8 teaspoon dried dill. Pulse mixture in a coffee grinder.
