Football is my second passion in life, second of course to Bacon. When this recipe was submitted to us I knew I needed to pass this along before Superbowl Sunday. Now matter who you are rooting for, or which party you are attending, this could be the most talked about appetizer there.


1 pkg. Jiffy corn bread mix

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 pkg. Ranch dressing mix

3 large tomatoes

1 cup sour cream

1 can pinto beans or black beans

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup whole kernel sweet corn

1/2 green pepper, chopped?

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 sweet red pepper, chopped

1 jar bacon bits.


Mix the corn bread according to package instructions and bake in either a pan or cup cake liners. Cut into squares or crumble into a bowl. Set aside. Mix vegetables in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix mayonnaise, sour cream, and ranch dressing. In a 9″ x 13″ pan or serving bowl, layer half of the corn bread, half of the vegetables, and half of the cheese, half of the bacon and half of the dressing. Repeat layers. Organize salad cups into rows (photo shows seven rows and four columns but adjust your “field” to your tray size). Use a few cooked strands of spaghetti or cheese to show the scrimmage lines and cake decorations (or small toys) are positioned as football players. Pretzels or chocolate make great goal posts.

If you give this a shot we would love to see your pics.
