Marion's Slices of Happiness

As Emeril says, "Pork fat rules." Particularly when mixed with cheese. My sister-in-law, Marion, is one of the BEST cooks around. She's a master of getting the flavors, textures, colors et al to mesh perfectly. She's a mom to two small kids and one grown-up kid (my brother, Matt.) Plus she works full-time. So, she's also had to master the yummy and quick dish. This is one of those. Mom, John (brother,) Tom (nephew) and I went down to their home last Thanksgiving. Marion served us these for breakfast one morning. Couldn't wait to fix them for Connie when I got home. The toughest part is learning where in the world your grocery store stocks the Old English cheese!

Marion's Slices of Happiness

2 sleeves of sausage or 2lb of freshly ground sausage
3 jars of Old English cheese
2 package of English muffins

Lay English muffin halves on a cookie sheet. Brown and drain the sausage. Stir in the cheese. (Nota bene: We always double the recipe so we can use three jars of Old English cheese.) Keep stirring until it melts. Remove the pot from the heat and schmear the mix on English muffin halves. Pop them in the freezer overnight. The next morning, stack them in the sleeve the muffins came in and pop everything back in the freezer.

When you need a slice of happiness, put it in the toaster oven on 350 for about 15-20 minutes. It is indeed a slice of happiness!
