Everyone loves this dish. I add 1/2 lb. cooked grnd beef + 1/2 lb. cooked pork sausage to the bacon layer. Try warming your serving in the microwave for about 30 seconds & you'll eat even more of it.
I make this using the Buttery Cornbread recipe from Best of Potluck by TOH. I leave out the chili's and other seasonings and cut out just the amount called for in this recipe. I also added a can of black beans and I use 1 package thawed frozen corn instead of canned. This is good stuff! My kids and husband love it. It is even better after a day or two in the fridge and the cornbread never gets soggy.
I've been making this for years, and it's always a hit. It's week worth the time it takes to make it.
I have made this many times over the years. It is a huge hit at pot lucks and with my family. The only reason why I don't make it more often is because of the time involved for the prep work.
I always get rave reviews from my company on this wonderful, hearty salad! And it actually lasts for days in the refrigerator.
