AWESOME! I had this recipe years ago (although it had a disgusting name and refuse to post it here) and had lost it. As soon as I read this, I knew it was the one! Make sure to use Velveeta- gen...

Im sorry this just tasted way too heavy for mt family. Thanks anyways

Known to the Irish as "sh*t on a shingle"... been in the family for years. This recipe is so simple and delicious- use Velveeta! And I prefer mild Italian sausage... it appeals to more people....

There were great and I also added cooked onion and bell pepper to mine. This is a keeper!

I remember making these when I was younger. I had a hard time finding the recipe again for them. I love these and they are so easy to make ahead of time and freeze for later.
