The mayonnaise makes it much richer, too.  I have had this recipe since we managed KCHI Radio, in Chillicothe, Missouri.  Debbie Walker was our copy writer at the radio station.  Her mother, Jean Burke, had us over for lunch, back in the late 70s.  She served us this casserole, shared the recipe, and I have been making it ever since.
