Homemade Comeback Thousand Island DressingI'm guessing that just about every southerner has a recipe in their recipe box for Thousand Island Dressing - and every one of them just a little bit different. It's a pretty simple dressing really - just a mix of mayonnaise, add in some ketchup or chili sauce, throw in some chopped sweet pickles or pickle relish and a bit of chopped egg and you'll have a perfectly fine Thousand Island dressing.
But, I say, why not kick it up a bit and transform our fabulous and original Mississippi Comeback Sauce into a great Thousand Island dressing?
DE-lish y'all - hope ya like it!
By the way, that's Trisha Yearwood's Baked Spaghetti peeking around in the background in the picture below. I love it more every time I make it and it's a real crowd-pleaser. As a main dish for 6 adults and 2 kids, with a side salad and garlic bread, there was nary a drop left! I even used up the tail end of my homemade cream of mushroom soup with it!
