Easy Rye Bread Party Pizzas

3 weeks until SEC football! I am currently working on prepping my tailgate food.  I like to make some party snacks and freeze them so I can just grab them and go. This is one of those party snacks. I’ve been making these sausage toasts for years. Someone brought these to a tailgate and they disappeared in no time! I got the recipe and I’ve been making them ever since. They are easy to make and go over well at a party. I like to eat them for breakfast too (and dinner when Chicken Legs is out of town).

How to Make Sausage & Cheese on Party Rye Bread

These toasts are SUPER easy to make. Cook some sausage. Add Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and Velveeta cheee. Stir just until combined. Spread the mixture on slices of party rye bread. Pop the bread under the broiler and cook until golden brown.

  • I used Jimmy Dean sausage.
  • Can substitute turkey sausage for the pork sausage.
  • Don’t like sausage? Feel free to substitute ground beef.
  • I like to chop the cooked sausage in the food processor to get it finely chopped.
  • Do not overheat the Velveeta. You just want it warm enough to stir into the sausage. Overheating the Velvetta will make queso!
  • Sometimes I add a dash of hot sauce. YUM!
  • I find the party rye bread loaves in the deli/bakery section at the grocery store.
  • Don’t like rye bread? You can substitute party pumpernickel bread or use English muffins.
  • You can assemble the toasts and freeze them for a quick treat later. To bake after freezing, allow to thaw and broil.

  1. I have not eaten such cheese and sausage breads for ages, but remember my how my mother did them. Very tasty, though surely also depending on the sausage quality 😉
    Cheers, from cheese country Switzerland

  2. We call these Hankie Pankies here in my neck of the woods. They're delicious. But I'm going to have to say "GO BUCKS" to make this comment complete.

  3. Oh yeah, I had forgotten all about these little goodies! They are a great snack for football for sure.

  4. It sounds good with the exception of the Rye. Can't get use to the taste. And really now that I'm old, don't want to.

    Too much good food in the world, will just eat what I like.

    Would luv to make them but sub in the little wheat bread instead.

  5. We do snacks and appetizers for Christmas Eve in my family – if our variation of these isn't there it's not Christmas. Our variation is that we double the recipe and use a 2-lb block of velveeta and then in addition to the sausage we add a pound of ground beef. Now I'm totally craving these!!
