Easy Sausage Squares Appetizer

This appetizer is one of my most favorite one EVER. Many Waters Easy Sausage Squares AppetizerIt’s easy to make and is delicious.  I only make it for Christmas because it’s not the healthiest.  It’s yumminess makes up for the unhealthiness, I promise!


1 lb Ground Sausage (I like to buy the Jimmy Dean with Sage)

A tsp or two of Sage, if your sausage doesn’t already have it added

4-5 oz Cheese, cubed (originally I made it with Velveeta but that stuff is so bad for you so I tried making it with medium cheddar and it works fine and still tastes great.)

1 package Cocktail bread (you can find it in the deli section.  I like to use Rye)

To Make It:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1.  Brown the sausage in a pan, breaking it into little chunks as it cooks.

2.  While it’s browning, place the cocktail breads on a cookie sheet.

3.  Once the sausage is browned, drain fat if needed.  Add the sage (if it’s not already in your sausage) and mix well.  Once the sage is mixed in, add the cubes of cheese. Stir well to help the cheese melt and mix into the sausage.  Continue to add cheese until it’s cheesy.

You might not need to add all the cheese.  You want it to be very cheesy, like this:

4.  Once the sausage is cheesy enough for you, spoon about a teaspoons worth on each cocktail bread.

  1. My mom used to make these when we were little! We always called them little pizzas. My sister and I made them last time she came to visit, but my kids didn't like them.

  2. These look delicious, plus David's parents just brought us down a lot of sausage and other pork products from their farm so this may be happening this Christmas! :)

  3. YAY! Hope you love them like we do!

  4. :( That your kiddo's didn't like them. Maybe when they're older? Munchkin only likes the top, but she loves anything with cheese!

  5. Looks like an appetizer that would be a huge hit! Thanks so much for sharing at Saturday Night Fever!

  6. Sounds like the kind of appetizer that would be a huge hit with the whole family!

  7. Now this is something I can sink my teeth into. We love making our own sausage and think this would be something different to do with it besides breakfast.

  8. What a simple and delicious idea! I pinned this and i'm going to try it out. Yummy!

  9. I'll have to give these a try. They look kid friendly...I could make this a snack type meal for a quick dinner or maybe scramble some eggs and make it breakfast. :)
