For kids, use MILD sausage!

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.

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.

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.

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.

There were great and I also added cooked onion and bell pepper to mine. This is a keeper!
