Jan 2 – Porkies

John requested my sister make these for our Christmas/ New Years celebration this weekend. I made them to take to our friends for the Iowa Hawkeyes in the outback bowl today.   After a discussion with friends we discovered several different names. We always called them Porkies.  Others called them Hanky Pankies, Funeral Meat, and  Toast trash I think was another name. Either way they are a yummy meal or snack to take to a gathering.



  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound sausage (of spice level of your desire)
  • 8-10 ounces Velveeta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • Rye bread


Preheat your oven to 375 degree.

Brown the sausage and ground beef and break up into pieces. Cube your Velveeta cheese into small pieces so it melts faster.  Once the meat is browned add your worcestershire sauce and oregano and stir well. Add the velveeta stirring to mix as it melts.

Once you have a smooth creamy mixture and the cheese is evenly blended in. Place on your rye bread.  You can use full slices like I do when I make it a meal, or you can use the small tea breads for appitisers. I have also been told people put these on garlic bread. yumm…

Place into a 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes till the cheese is bubbly and warm.

Love every minute of meaty cheesy goodness!
