We love to have plenty of appetizer recipes. This one has been a favorite for years and years with my family and close friends. It is good for parties, get-togethers, or heavy appetizers for the family. This is a savory sausage suprise that is always a hit. It freezes well, so you can have batches in the freezer and when you need a quick appetizer…viola…in 20 minutes time, you are set to go. (and we know that Velveeta isn’t the healthiest choice out there, but, man, does it work it this recipe!)
Party Sausage Sandwiches
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground sausage
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon oregano flakes
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced -or- 1 tsp. garlic powder
1 pound Velveeta cheese, chopped in cubes…
2 loaves party rye or sourdough bread. (These loaves have small pieces of bread, approximately 2 inches X 2 inches.)
Brown meats and drain grease. Return to heat and add Worcestershire sauce, oregano flakes, and garlic. Saute for one minute, then add Velveeta cheese cubes. Cook until cheese is melted. Remove from heat. Spoon mixture onto top of party rye or sourdough bread. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
To freeze: place on cookie sheet and put in freezer for 45 minutes. Then place into ziploc bags.
