For the Foodie

Hanky Panky….wait, what?!

Yes, hanky panky is the name. Just as delicious as the deed, these are addictive enough that I’ve seen near fist fights for the last one!



I had never heard of or tried these appetizing little snacks until I met my husband. These are almost like a family tradition, a staple at every get-together. Christmas, Thanksgiving, or just weekend football parties – these are sure to be on the menu, and boy are they tasty! My mother-in-law gave me the recipe and I added a few spices to mine (because we like it hot).

You will need:

  • 1 loaf of rye cocktail bread (2x2in squares)
  • 1 lb of hot pork sausage
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 16 ounces of velveeta cheese
  • As much chile seasoning and red pepper flakes as your flaming heart desires
  1. Set the oven to 375
  2. Brown and drain all of the meat
  3. Add in the velveeta cheese to melt.
  4. Season (I always like to season my meat as it browns and then again once it’s drained and I’m adding the other ingredients) .
  5. Scoop a tablespoon or two onto each rye cocktail square.
  6. Put these bad boys in for about 12 minutes or so and then let cool.
Watch how fast these fly off the plate at your next family get-together!

**For a gluten-free twist, set aside a large bowl of the meat-cheese mixture and you still can enjoy this yummy gooeyness with some Tostito scoop chips.
