Polish Mistakes are a family favorite we have been making for YEARS! I can't believe I found them on here, I thought they were a family secret!! I make these frequently for appetizers usually around Christmas time and they are a HUGE hit. We, however do not use onion, instead we use basil, a pinch of fennel, onion powder, and garlic powder (TBS of each). I have never once heard the complaint that they are bland. Velveeta is the best cheese to use, i wouldn't substitute with store brand

The main reason I tried these was because you could make ahead, followed the recipe to the letter but they came out dry and not at all cheesy. My hubby who will eat most anything did not like these at all, will not make again

We made this to freeze and put in individual bags for a quick snack or lunch. They are great. The only thing I would point out is to put the pan on the bottom rack in the oven. This may be obvious to some people since it's being broiled but it was not obvious to me and I tried to put both pans on the top rack. Luckily, they didn't fit side by side but my first batch was scorched by the broiler. The second, which was on the bottom rack turned out perfect!

Try making them with a spoonful of garlic mashed potatoes on the rye,then add the meat mixture. When cooled somewhat top with a slice of cucumber or grape tomato ~Delicious appetizer.

My family also made these for years at the holidays for big gatherings - lost the recipe and excited to find it here. Yes, you must add some garlic powder to it. Also, a friend of mine does a variation of this recipe by putting all of the ingredients in the crockpot (brown the meat first) and serving it warm with the bread on the side for people to serve themselves. She calls it Hanky Panky. Excellent.

This has been a family recipe of ours for YEARS! Ours is a bit more simple though - just a pound of ground beef, pound of italian sausage, and a pound of Velveeta all cooked together. We put it on either rye or wheat bread and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350.

Love this recipe. I've always made these, and this year I could not find the cocktail rye break anywhere!!! So I bought a loaf of regular rye bread and used holiday cookie cutters to cut out small pieces. I toasted the bread and left the meat mixture in the crock pot for guests to dish out themselves. It was a big hit and everyone loved the different shapes of bread.

These were fantastic. Just like my grandma used to make! I also tried the previous crock pot idea for a carry-in. It worked well, but if I had to choose, into the oven they would go.
