Grandma Rees' Party Ryes

     I am not sure how these ended up being a Christmas food at Grandma's, but they are!  They are really good and they freeze well.   You could heat up a few at a time and have a perfect snack.  They never last that long when the Rees family is around though!  As we were talking about them this past Christmas, Grandma says that she remembered them being round when she started making them.  Now the rye bread is little squares!

   You can find the little rye bread squares by the deli section in the grocery store.  They are usually in a little display by where they cut the deli meat.

Grandma's Party Ryes


1 lb bulk mild sausage (the kind in the roll works great)
1 lb bulk Italian sausage
1 heaping Tablespoon of Ketchup
1 T garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp chili powder
1 T Worcestershire sauce
2 lb Velveeta
2 loaves party rye squares

  1. Mix the sausages and brown them.  Drain the grease.
  2. Cut the Velveeta into cubes and carefully melt with the sausage
  3. Add spices and sauces, stirring to combine
  4. Spread the cheese mix on the slices of rye bread
  5. Once they are cooled, you can stack and freeze them.
  6. Bake on a cookie sheet in a 375 F oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melty
