This is an old family favorite. We pretty much can't have a gathering without these. There is no written recipe, it has been passed around verbally since I was a child. Everyone I've made these for has loved them. I hope you do too!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 loaf rye cocktail bread
  • 8 ounces grated swiss cheese (I grate my own and domestic works fine)
  • 1 (6 ounce) packagehormel pepperoni slices, chopped
  • 12 small onion, finely minced
  • mayonnaise, enough to bind (I have never measured this - I add mayo to the mixture until it holds together, it's hard to mess th)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line baking sheet with foil.
  3. Mix all ingredients (except for bread) together.
  4. Spread cheese/pepperoni mixture onto the rye breads and place them on baking sheet (s).
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cheese is browned and bubbling (the bottom of the breads should become brown and crispy).
  6. Enjoy!

Different, and has always been a big hit with guests. Great snack or appetizer. Can be made ahead and refrigerated before baking for large groups. Thanks Deborah.
