These are great appetizers for parties. You can make the mixture ahead of time. I remember these as a kid. They were called ZZ's party breads and instead of worcestershire sauce we used tabasco or hot sauce and the mixture was spread onto rye party bread and then baked in the oven at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes. Without cooking them in the oven, they really aren't done and don't have a crispiness to them.
I really dressed this recipe up for flavor. It is bland the way it is.
I used 1 lb beef, 1 lb hot sausage, 1 lb Velveeta and shredded Colby Jack & Mozzarella to top it off. I added 1 tsp garlic power, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tbsp Worcestershire, 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper & 1/4 tsp salt to the meat mixture before adding the cheese. For the bread, I used Rye cocktail bread.
I usually make this without the worcestershire sauce and put it on party rye, add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. It's always the first to go at parties--DEE-LISH!
Very very good. Where I grew up we used to make the same mixture and put it on little party rye bread and bake in the oven for 15 minutes or so. Called them polish mistakes. They are great for a party, too.
Like many of the other reviewers, we always served this on cocktail rye growing up, but we called the Pizza Ryes or Buffalo Chips. (very appetizing!) Nowadays, my kids prefer this mixture as a dip with restaurant style tortilla chips. However you eat it, it's awesome!
Grandma made this quite a bit for her kids growing up (and for us grandkids, too) only she called it Sweepstakes. She schmeared the meat on the bread, covered it with cheese and then placed it under the broiler so the cheese would be melted. It's quite cheap to make and benefits from your own choice of spices and the addition of onion and garlic. The original calls for american or processed cheese but it works with just about any cheese you have on hand. GREAT boy food.
I make this with 1lb Lean ground beef, 1lb hot italian sausage and 1lb mexican style velveta. Then I take a good scoop of it an spread it on a slices of party rye. Then I place them on a cookie sheet and freeze them. Then put them into ziplock bags, When ready to cook I pre-heat oven to 375* and cook how ever many I need on a cookie sheet for 10 min. My husband likes hot sauce on his!!!
My huband even said he would order this from a restaurant. Very simple and tasty.
