The Timeless Appeal of Hanky Pankies

Hanky Pankies have been delighting taste buds since your grandmother’s time, known by various names, including the quirky “s**t on a shingle.”

Regardless of what you call them, one thing is for certain – they are absolutely delicious!

A Unique Twist: Bacon-Infused Goodness

I like to put my spin on this classic recipe by adding a touch of bacon.

As the saying goes, “Bacon makes everything better,” and it holds true for these Hanky Pankies.

My version includes a blend of Jimmy Dean sausage, crumbled bacon, Velvetta cheese, minced onion, garlic powder, a hint of red pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.

Make-Ahead Convenience

One of the highlights of this recipe is its make-ahead convenience. You can prepare the sausage, onions, and bacon the night before.

Combine them with spices and Worcestershire, refrigerate, and the next day, simply heat it up, add Velvetta, and spread the mixture over cocktail rye bread before baking.

Alternatively, assemble the Hanky Pankies earlier in the day, refrigerate the pan, and bring it out to reach room temperature before baking.

It’s a hassle-free way to serve up a perfect appetizer for your hungry crowd of football fans!
