All my guests loved this recipe, i could not get them out of the oven quick enough. The recipe calls for 4 cups of cheese, I only used 2 cups and it worked out fine.

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.

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!

This was a huge hit with the 'guys' in the house!

These aren't my personal favorite, but the guys sure do love them. These are requested frequently.

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!

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.

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!
