Pizza Rye Snacks – rye toasts topped with your favorite part of pizza, the meat and cheese! They’re a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!
Who else has camped out on their parent’s couch to binge watched Making a Murderer on Netflix? It can’t be just me.
I’m in the tundra this holiday season, which means the only thing to do besides drink and eat is hibernate in the best way you can find. This year’s hibernation meant getting cozy and non-stop watching Making a Murderer, as I mentioned already, but I’m obsessed. Yes — you need to watch it if you’re sitting there on the fence. I’d also recommend making these Pizza Rye Snacks to satisfy your cheese and carb cravings while your’e nail-bite-watching this intense documentary.
Pizza Rye Snacks have been in my family’s snack collection FOREVER. I really thought I should change the name, because “Pizza Rye Snacks” isn’t exactly descriptive, but I’m a sucker for tradition. And the name is tradition.
My mom has made these for years, but with Velveeta. I know, if you’re anything like me, Velveeta is your secret love. It’s ability to melt like liquid gold, all oozy and gooey. But you know it’s so bad for you; I mean, is there even a real ingredient in it? I try to convince myself it’s legit, but um, I think it’s still some fake cheese-ness going on. So… I knew if I was going to share the snack with y’all, I had to change it up and put some real cheese in it.
I’m happy to say that despite the lack of Velveeta, the Pizza Rye Snacks have had a delicious make-over. They are loaded with real cheddar cheese sauce, sausage, beef, and pizza spices all on top of little rye toasts.
Make these for your next get-together for those meat lovin’ guys (or girls!) in your life for a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
