This is a recipe most kids love! Cook time does not include browning the meats. I don't recall how many servings I froze.

I agree......this is the original recipe. I have made these for 50 years and still everyone loves them. I make a double batch....(buy the 2 pound loaf of cheese and double the meat) and after assembling and freezing, I put them in zip-locks and store them in the freezer. I really do think they are better after being frozen. I don't bake them, I just put them on a baking sheet under the broiler until the cheese is melted and the edges of the bread is a bit toasty. <br/>I am making them now to have for Thanksgiving and will still have some for Xmas. <br/>I finally found out that if the sausage is too chunky for the little bread bits, then it is easy to cook it and give it a couple of pulses in the food processor. It just makes it a little easier to spread on the tiny pieces of bread. <br/>Oh, and I also use regular sausage and some hot & spicy.........just gives a bit more flavor.<br/>I also add some finely chopped onions. These are just some suggestions, but believe me, you can't make enough of these to satisfy everyone at your party. <br/>Donna
