My recipe include 1 lb. of ground beef mixed with the sausage/cheese. I also "fast"-freeze on a cookie sheet, then store them in plastic bags for ease of serving (they don't stick together in the freezer and you can take out as many as you need for the occassion!) Pop them in a 350 degree oven for about 15 min. and you have appetizers for hungry guests! People rave about them.

Sausage mix was yummy when warm, but as it cooled, it did not look appealing. The bread got real hard too. Serve immediately.

In the Midwest, these are known as Hanky Panks. I make mine with sausage,ground turkey and Velvetta. Happy Holidays--they make alot and everyone loves them.

You cannot go wrong with this and your creativity is what ever you devise. Top the party squares with a slice of black or green olive, a thin slice of shallot, a sliver of roasted garlic, to go hotter use a slice of hot pepper (pepper of your choice), a slice of boild egg or just serve it plain. My former wife started serving this at our parties (virgin with no toppings) more than fifteen years ago and we never made enough. These were gone in less than fifiteen minutes after they were presented. It can be prepared in advance (without your creative toppings) and frozen and then just put in the oven to reheat (around 325 for about 10 to 15 minutes, but do look on them periodically an I suggest to use parcment paper) them and then add your creative toppings. Suggest you use parchment paper when reheating.

This was a big hit at Christmas. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because the Velveeta came through stronger than I enjoy. I'll make this again but cut the Velveeta taste with another cheese.

These were the hit of the party when I served them as an appetizer for card night. I used italian flavored sausage and about 6 oz of velveeta. Just yummy!

These are excellent and always a hit at parties. I add a little onion when I am cooking the sausage. Great recipe.
