Happy Holidays and get ready to relish in the best of the year in parties, gatherings and holiday love. Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles from all those loved ones that you gather together with?
The holidays are about getting together, eating delicious foods and sharing the kitchen with every family member, because we all squash in whether we fit or not! Today I am sharing the coveted Vento Family Cheesy Sausage and Party Rye Appetizers. These appetizers never miss a holiday occasion in our home.
I prefer simple appetizers, with just a few ingredients, not over complicated recipes. This recipe is dedicated to all those that want a tasty ‘starter’ and no a lot of work! Lavishly live food and the holidays out loud and learn the recipe secret that makes preparing this recipe a pleasure! Roll into the holidays, Friends-giving, Friends-mas, Thanksgiving with a yummy cheesy sausage and party rye appetizer that always pleases!
Cheesy Sausage and Party Rye Appetizers
Every year, as a young girl, in between our family gatherings, we’d gather with my parent’s friends. After years, they became adopted ‘Aunt & Uncle.’ We loved gathering at her house with her family (she has 4 kids, 3 boys an a girl). The party would start around dinner and not end till after midnight. The finished basement had fun things in it to play with for kids our age, and we did play!
Air hockey quickly became my favorite pass time there. It got fiercely competitive between all of us and really loud, but one ever cared. Of course there was a pool table, a television and so much more. Of course the food options my Aunt made rocked.
She is so creative and always had these tasty recipes. In fact, I can admit that on more than one holiday, I’d eat more appetizers than I should have and of course this led to my belly being too full to eat the main meal! In that tradition, and due to a really hectic life with three kids, a job etc, I adopted the recipe to our parties for my family.
There’s not one holiday that goes by that we don’t have this crave-able and easy to prepare appetizer and I want to offer it to you for your families, friends, and holiday gatherings. Ready to see how easy it is and what ingredients to use? You will not believe how 3 ingredients come together to make a proportioned for sharing snack.
Where To Shop For Your Ingredients
I know I promised to share the recipe and I am, keep reading. However, if you don’t know where to get the ingredients you won’t be able to prepare this simple masterpiece. I consider Sam’s Club my go-to for pre-party shopping and recipe preparation. I got my ingredients at Sam’s Club!
Spend time in the refrigerated and frozen section and you will find what you need, it is that easy! Now let’s get to the ingredients so you know what to shop for! Ready? It’s time to create a sensational appetizer that always pleases!
2 Pounds Of Jimmy Dean® Fresh Rolled Sausage (pork flavor) refrigerated section Sam’s Club
Use a 2 pounds of Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product (cubed into smaller pieces)
Loaves of Party Rye Squares (around deli areas) (2)
non-stick frying pan
Baking Tray covered with parchment paper
Place Sausage in frying pan.
As it begins to cook, use a spatula and break it down into crumbles, frying evenly.
Allow meat to brown and cook completely.
Now it’s time to get the ingredients combined together into a vibrant chorus of flavor!
Add in cheese cubes once the meat is browned.
Mix well, and allow cheese to melt.
Remove from heat.
Line parchment covered a baking tray with bread pieces.
Finally, coat each with a tablespoon of mixture.
Broil on Lo for 3 minutes until golden brown.
The cheesy sausage party rye appetizers are seasoned to perfection with a proprietary blend of Jimmy Dean® Fresh Rolled Sausage (regular flavor) and melted cheese! Total yum happening here! You are about to serve some very hungry guest some seriously yummy eats!
There’s nothing like food to bring the whole family together. No matter what part of the house your party is in, family always gathers in the kitchen. That is why I keep things simple and fun. I place the foods on my chef’s center island and everyone comes in.
They might be playing air hockey, or basketball, or maybe even gaming, but the party starts officially once the food is out. Food is fun, and parties are a reason for good foods!
As they start to eat, there is inevitably the swatting party too. You know the party when everyone swats your hand away from the dish so they can grab first? Of course you are familiar with this because everyone has experience that phenomenon at one time or another!
You see, I make sure to create multiple platters, that is why I use 2 pounds of Sausage and 2 full loaves of party rye. There is no doubt that this all we be scoffed down. Sure there are other treats out too, but I keep it simple and fuss-free. Doesn’t it look delicious and simple? My favorite combination!
Another Star Appetizers
Just in case you want more appetizers on your table (I do), here’s another simple recipe. I will give you the overview because that is all you need. Honestly, these are lovely bite-sized starters that are perfect to feed a crowd!
In case you did not notice it on my food spread, we also serve up Hillshire Farm® Lit’l Smokies® Smoked Sausage wrapped inside of a croissant roll! Literally that is all there is to the recipe.
I cut a croissant wrap into 2, and use both pieces to wrap 2 Hillshire Farm® Lit’l Smokies® Smoked Sausage . Then it bakes for 10 minutes and suddenly there are dozens of these on a tray!
There’s nothing to that recipe, so seeing the final presentation is the best way to understand it. Trust me, a tray of each of these are crowd pleasers and provides lots of snack foods fast! Now that’s a party!
LAVISHLY LIVING SHOPPING & FOOD OUT LOUD . Now it’s your turn to make this recipe a staple in your home for the holidays and you know where to find it! Whether you host Friends-giving, Thanksgiving, Friends mas, Christmas, Hanukkah or any other holiday party, make it your go-to recipe!
