These were just ok. Yeah the men liked them but didn't go crazy for them. Way too much cheddar cheese. After broiling these they were also very greasy not crispy. I might make again I don't know. Nothing to write home about. Read More

We make a similar recipe every New Year's Eve but we use Swiss cheese instead of cheddar and we don't use bacon bits. I have a good tip for making these even better. The big complaint we used to get was how soggy they are. If you first toast your cocktail rye bread before putting the mixture on that will make them less soggy. You can even toast them up hours before needing them. Just keep the toasted rye bread slices in a zip top bag until you need them! Read More

My husband DID love this recipe! I put it on English muffins and baked them for about 15 minutes. I crumbled up some leftover bacon from breakfast and used a little more mayo. I used some dill cheddar cheese that I found at the farmer's market. As Rachael would say it was CRAZY good! Read More

Very similar to what my husband's NaNa made and everyone gobbled up----we add 1-2 tsp. of Carroway seeds to give it a bit more flavor. It's a tried and true favorite. Read More

The guys did go crazy over these but the girls didn't complain about them. Just a weird phenomenon with the guys - who knew?! I made the cheese mixture a day early and put it in the fridge - for easy prep on the day of the party. Had some cheese mixture left over and made AWESOME chili nachos with it. Thanks so much for this recipe! Read More

We've had a similar recipe in our family for years. We don't put the bacon in the cheese mixture we sprinkle it on top. We also bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. The bacon becomes crispy not greasy. Read More

These rye rounds were great. I didn't measure any think but I think it would be pretty hard to ruin. I used just enough mayo to get everything to stick together. Everyone loved them. I followed another reviewers suggestion to toast the bread first. It worked great. We ate them with homemade tomato soup. A keeper! Read More
