  • Reviews

  • “I’ve been making these for years, but instead of the hot sauce I use Worsteshire sauce and the Mexican Blend Velveeta (hot or mild).I freeze them on cooking sheets and then place in freezer bags.Bake frozen for 10 to 15 minutes.Great appetizer!”

  • “One of our favorites for gatherings.Easy to make, and quick to disappear.I omit the tobasco, and use regular sausage simply because we don’t care Italian Sausage in anything.”

  • “I too have been making these for years.They are always a hit and I am consistantly asked for the recipe.REALLY EASY!!!!They are a great make ahead appetizer.I also add 2 T of Italian Seasoning.”

  • “My review could be a dupicate of Yoopers (grin)My Grandmother has been making these for as long as I can remember.I, too, use Worsteshire sauce, but use regular Velvetta instead of mexican blend.I’ve also made it with a mixture of gr beef and hot Italian sausage.It’s a versatile recipe.”
