While this recipe is NOT the healthiest (so if you thought I was always a healthy eats blog, you might as well turn around RIGHT now!! :-P) but its a family favorite. It is courtesy of my Aunt J. She is always cooking some delicious eats, and its always being shoved down my throat when I manage to go home! My favorite thing that they make is my Uncle's famous venison jerky. Oh man. I know she reads this too so this is me dropping MASSIVE hints that I should get a care package of some this year ;-D
This recipe really doesn't have a name except Hanky Pankys. And it's been called that for as long as I can remember. Its served at all the New Years Partys, birthdays, really any big family get together we had. This and her AMAZING taco salad which I will be making here soon! Its very quick, its very easy and it takes a grand total of three ingredients. Yup, three. I made them the other night as a dinner just because it was one of those busy days and didn't feel like coming home and cooking a big meal. Yeah let's just say that there were maybe 3 left over out of the three cookie sheets I made.
Recipe after the pictures!
What you need:
1 small block of velvetta per 1 container of Jimmy Dean Sausage (I use the 1lb per 1 container of the breakfast sausage)
1 sleeve of pumpernickel bread (again, depends on how many you are cooking for!)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Fry up the Jimmy Dean Sausage and then drain meat
3. Slice up the veletta and melt cheese over sausage.
4. Spoon some of the meat/cheese combination onto a slice of the bread. Arrange on cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 10 minutes. Depending on your oven, you have to keep an eye on it. You want the bread to get a crisp yet chewy taste in the center. You don't want it so hard that you are biting into a brick because then you will be hating life.
What's for dinner? Tonight I am trying out a new recipe...Crockpot Beef Stroganoff over steamed rice. Should be tasty!
