Top-ranked recipe named "Seven Layer Salad"
Top with Miracle Whip dressing. I know it doesn't sound like it would taste good - but it does. It works with the egg in the salad.
Dressing is made by mixing Miracle Whip and white sugar to taste(sorry I never measure anything). Don't be afraid to add quite a bit of sugar - it is suppose to be sweet. I use Lite Miracle Whip.
Spread or drizzle (the topping will be thinner with more sugar) until whole top of salad is covered to edges. (I've heard it's great with a sprinkling of Cayenne, but since I have small children who are sensitive to spice, I do not use it)
Top with thick layer of shredded cheddar - your choice, but medium is best.
Sprinkle with REAL bacon bits - not imitation (or it will taste like dog food WILL get soggy).
