"This appetizer has been a standard since the Sunset magazine early years. Since Sunset magazine started in 1898, not sure if it goes back ways-away-that-far-back,but if I were to guess I would say 60's or 70's as the ingredients tell-it-so. This app. is ever so easy and not only to be enjoyed as an app to a start off a party but a great tidbit for movie night or for a dinner appie night."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Stir together onions, cheese, and 6 tablespoons of the mayonnaise until well blended; add more mayonnaise, if necessary, to give mixture a spreading consistency.

Step 2

Arrange bread slices side-by-side in a 10 x 15-inch rimmed baking pan. Broil about 6-inches below heat until bread is toasted.

Step 3

Turn slices over and spread cheese mixture until untoasted side. Broil about 6-inches below heat until bubbly and lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

Step 4

Makes 2 dozen appetizers. The serving size above of 10-16 is a guesstimate.


No special items needed.

Super good! I remember making these a long, long time ago! Mine came out a little too salty for me, but that's probably due to the cheese (finely grated Pecorino Romano) . I think the stuff in the green can would be better for this. So quick and easy, don't know why these fell off my radar!

This made a great snack for game day today. It's easy to make, the recipe uses all common ingredients that I had on hand, and it's so tasty. We enjoyed them with beer served in chilled mugs and a round of margaritas, and these Hasty Hots were great with both beverage choices. Thanks, ForeverMama.

This is a very economical, tasty Mmmmm appetizer. I would like to add a drop or two of Thai Chili sauce just before serving but that is not to say it isn't great without it. Perfect Sunday Appetizer to serve with my Martini. 9 June 19 Here is a 5 star appetizer that is easy, quick, tasty and economical. What more could . you ask for? It really only takes 3 minutes in the oven!
