"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."

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.
