To reviewer Kristenjanel: Your mother might have called these Hanky Pankies. The processed cheese most often used is Velveeta. Great to freeze and take out when unexpected company comes. Just pop under the broiler for a few minutes undtil bubbly. Read More

AWESOME! I had this recipe years ago (although it had a disgusting name and refuse to post it here) and had lost it. As soon as I read this I knew it was the one! Make sure to use Velveeta- generic brands don't meld as well. Read More

I've made this recipe a lot before. The best thing to do is to ADD A TABLESPOON OF OREGANO and mix it into the meat before adding the cheese. Trust me it makes it so much better. Read More

Known to the Irish as "sh t on a shingle"... been in the family for years. This recipe is so simple and delicious- use Velveeta! And I prefer mild Italian sausage... it appeals to more people. I've never met anyone who didn't love this recipe. Read More

I used homemade rye bread cut into little squares for this. I froze them ahead of time and popped them in the oven for 7-8 minutes as suggested. They were crispy toasted and hot and not a one was left so I'd say everyone enjoyed them! Read More
