We make ours a little differently here in the Ozarks - we scramble a couple of eggs and mix in with the greens before adding the dressing. We also don't use the sugar. My mom always makes this when she makes fresh deep-fried white or black bass. She serves with pan-fried potatoes and cornbread! It's a traditional family meal. Thanks for posting!

I loved when my mom made this stuff... I have made it several times but tried to switch some things a little, I didn't use as much viniger and added more buttermilk, I also added boiled eggs and cottage cheese....omg I can't make it any different now because those 2 ingredients topped it off! I hope maybe you all might try and like it because I sure did

I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
