It is Friday and that means it is time to see all those great recipes once again. Please visit Michael at Designs by Gollum for links to some of the best food you will ever see.
I have discovered something since I started this blog. I've tried to post the recipes that are family favorites, requested by my kids and asked for when I offer to bring a dish somewhere. Believe it or not, I really can cook. I can cook the fancy stuff, with crab, brie cheese and desserts that require several steps. What I realize as I write the blog is that people really like my simple recipes. My most requested things are the easiest and don't necessarily include the fancy ingredients. The following recipe is definitely one of the easy ones.
At our house we call them Pitty-Pats, although I think they have various names in different locations. Men really love this appetizer, but so do their wives. You only need 4 ingredients and the recipe is so simple you will have it memorized. A pound, a pound and a pound.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 pound of sausage (I use mild, if you like spice go for the medium or hot)
1 pound of ground beef
1 pound of Velveeta Cheese (I never buy Velveeta except for this and 2 other recipes)
1 loaf of the small cocktail bread (we like the rye, you can use the sour dough if you want)
In a large saucepan, brown the sausage and the ground beef together until done. Drain.
I do realize it looks like the dog got sick, but it does taste really good. On a cookie sheet, place rows of the small bread slices and top each slice with a generous portion of the meat mixture.
