Barbara brought this dish to a pot luck of ours. I was surprised to see this in the 11x14 dish rather than a deep pedestal dish. Her reasoning was that this way you can more easily get all seven (or 9) layers much more easily - good point!!

  3. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over all, then a layer of the crumbled cooked bacon, then the sliced or crumbled hard boiled eggs.
  4. This must be made one day prior to serving. Cover with Saran Wrap and refrigerate overnight.
