Others may think of this dish as a slap-together concoction of leftovers, but down South, it’s taken quite seriously. It’s a mainstay at fundraisers, potlucks, and church suppers. This is a layered version, which is more attractive, but you can easily just do it up mix-and-melt style. If you plan to use commercially made sauce, just make sure it’s good quality, since it’ll have a big effect on this dish’s flavor.
