Sausage and Cheese Party Spread | Sun City Sausage Spread Appetizer

Serve this tasty Sausage and Cheese spread with crackers or on Rye bread party rounds, mini bagels or English Muffin halves. Another name for it was Sun City Sausage Spread back in the 1970s!

My mom used to serve it on mini bagels that were cut in half and we'd enjoy it when watching the football games on TV.

Sun City Sausage Cheese Spread


1 lb hot Italian sausage (or substitute 1 lb. ground beef for either of the sausage meat)
1 lb Velveeta cheese, cubed
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t Worcestershire sauce

Crumble both types of sausage into a large skillet.
Over medium heat cook the sausage 8 minutes or until completely browned.
Drain the fat from the sausage.
Return the drained sausage to the skillet.
Turn the heat to low and add the cheese cubes.
Stirring often allow the cheese to melt completely.
Stir in the garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce.
Remove from the heat, place in a bowl and serve warm.
You could also spread this on the bagels and then freeze. To heat, place under broiler until bubbly.
