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.
