My grandkids were never huge fans of cauliflower, but the bacon makes a big difference in this dish. They like it even more with golden cauliflower instead of white. — Patricia Hudson, Riverview, Florida
I've been eating cornmeal mush ever since I was a little girl. Now it's become popular with my family. I especially love this version because the batter is made ahead of time and fried the next morning.
The "doubloons" in this bright side dish are actually garden treasures! It was a hit on the buffet at our pirate theme party. Once you try the fresh-tasting medley, I predict you'll serve it time and again.
When there's no gravy with the meat, this is great to serve in place of regularly mashed potatoes. I make it often to take to picnics and church socials. My husband even made it for his family's reunion one year when I couldn't go!

I love when an entire meal can be cooked outside on the grill and I don't need to heat up the kitchen. These tasty fries not only meet that requirement, but they are healthy, too. —Natalie Knowlton, Kamas, Utah
Smoked bacon adds zest to this bean bake, a recipe I got from my mother. I must confess that lima beans have never been among my favorite foods. But I actually like them in this casserole, and their color brightens up the mixture.
