This stackable dish is described perfectly by its name. You layer a variety of foods to create a delicious meal. This recipe has been passed down through my mom's side of the family. It's quick and easy, which makes it a perfect go-to meal when you don't have a lot of time. Best of all, every member of the family can build their plate with what they like. You can add more or substitute ingredients too, like lettuce, sour cream, onions, etc. I think if you try these haystacks once, you'll definitely want them again!
