To feed a crowd, especially when I want to make a good impression, I make this eye-popping cornbread salad. It’s beautiful in a trifle bowl. I love it in summer, when we can make it with our own garden produce. —Debbie Johnson, Centertown, Missouri

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) cornbread/muffin mix

  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
