"An updated version of the Hanky Panky with no processed cheese. I have not made these, I think I would incorporate some very finely diced tomato for a little bit of holiday color and these may go on my Christmas Eve appetizer list. From The Chew."

Step 1

In a large skillet, saute the sausage until cooked through, about 5-10 minutes. Be sure to break up any large chunks. When cooked drain and set aside reserving 2 tablespoons of the fat.

Step 2

Whisk the flour into the reserved fat followed by the milk. Add the grated parmesan, parsley, cooked sausage, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.

Step 3

Grill the slices of baguette, transfer to a sheet tray and spoon the sausage mixture on top. Place in the oven on broil until golden and bubbling, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with chopped parsley.

Loved these tasty little gems. Nice flavour & were easy to make. I cut the recipe back to 2 servings with no problem.

Picky Palate

I made them for my grandson's graduation party. They scoffed them down in minutes. These were such a good choice for the party and something different that seemed to be liked by everyone, even the children who attended.
