This recipe make a LOT, it is very easy to cut it in half, which I would recommend, unless you're taking them to a party. These also freeze well. Just re-heat for about 15 minutes. Keep on hand for emergencies and/or unexpected guests.
2 lbs. ground beef
2 lbs. pork sausage (use whatever you like, hot or mild)
2 loaves cocktail rye bread
2 lbs. Velveeta
Cook ground beef and sausage in heavy pot until done; drain off excess grease. Stir in cheese and continue heating on low setting until cheese is melted. Spread evenly on rye bread and place in oven at 350 degrees until brown (about 15-20 minutes).
