" Go Bears!" Party Ryes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mareesme

I used to call these Hanky Pankies (why is beyond me!). After I made them at my Super Bowl party the first time the Bears won many years ago, it's been a tradition every Super Bowl since. (7/5/07...Note: These are supposed to be served hot and kept warm, if possible. During the holidays I make a double batch and freeze them in large Ziplock bags with layers of wax paper or foil between each layer. Then you have a no-fuss appetizer when people pop by that you don't have to pry apart when you only want to bake a portion of them!)

This recipe has been around for at least 45 years, believe it or not. My sister-in-law's mom used to make them when I was little, and then my sis-in-law took over. She uses a hot sausage, so I don't care for them But with a mild or sage sausage, they are terrific.
