Tomorrow, Mom and I will be cooking, baking, and making sweets to give to our family and friends this week. It’s a holiday tradition that usually involves pumpkin bread, tiger butter, dipped pretzels, and hanky panks! What the heck is a hanky pank, you ask? It’s delcious, and very easy to make as a quick appetizer to feed the masses. Here’s how to do it:
1 lb. ground beef or turkey (or other meat)
1 lb. sausage (optional)
1 lb. Velveeta cheese
1 chopped onion (optional)
1 tsp. oregano
Garlic powder to taste
Rye party bread (a tiny little loaf with tiny little slices)
Cook the meat and onions in a pan until meat is brown and onion is translucent. Drain grease. Add Velveeta, oregano, and garlic to the hot meat and mix together. Spread mixture onto party rye slices and bake at 350 degrees Farenheit for about 7 minutes.
Make a few batches, because these go fast! They’re a great party food because they’re not messy, and are just the right size to pop in your mouth without looking like a hamster stuffing its cheeks.
