Subject: Reuben sausages

I have a kitchenaid with the meat grinder and sausage stuffer attachments. 
I have made polish and swedish sausages with it.  I came up with an idea a 
while back,,,,can't find a recipe for it,,,,,reuben sausages!  Is it possible? 
Corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and rye bread all grinded and able to 
be stuffed in the skins?  Then the sausages could be cut and dipped in thousand 
island dressing!
You helped me one time before with a recipe that my mother wanted,,,beef kreplac 
soup. I am at my wits end trying to find a recipe, if there is one for the reubens. 
I don't have the time to do trial and error trying to make it.  If you know of a 
recipe for this, I would greatly appreciate it! 
You are a great resource for all of us that are trying to find recipes.  Keep up 
the good work!

Hi Julie,

I could not find a recipe, but I found one company that makes reuben sausages. See:
Glenn's Market

If they can do it, you should be able to do it, too. I'm no expert, so I have no advice for you. The three sites below specialize in sausage making and have lots of recipes and instructions, although I didn't see a recipe similar to reuben sausage on any of them. If you write to the owners of those sites, they might be able to advise you. They appear to be experts in sausage making.




Quizzy Cake

Hello Phaedrus,
I've been trying to find the recipe for a cake my grandmother used to make.  She is now 
deceased and didn't write it down.  It was similar to a yellow layer cake with a caramel 
icing.  She used a lot of milk and sugar to make the icing and cooked it for a long time 
on the stovetop.  I assume that this is a Southern dish, but am not sure.  She was of 
Dutch descent. 
Hope this helps and I'll be anxious to see if you can find it.

Hello Connie,

I tried several different spelling variations for "quizzy", but the only mention that I 
can find anywhere of a cake with that name is here:

At the bottom of that page, below the recipe, is this:

"Storeytwin A said... I thank you so much for posting this recipe. My Grandmother that lived in Graniteville, South Carolina, was famous for making what she called Quizzy Cake (not sure of the spelling). I tried your recipe and it was just like it. I appreciate this so much, because none of us knew how she made it."

Is that you? That's the only mention that I can find.



I believe that's it!   My grandmother lived and died in Graniteville, SC, the same as the 
blogger's grandmother! 

Today, she is gone as are all of her children, and no one could find the recipe or 
duplicate it. Guess what we'll be having as dessert on Christmas Day.

Thank you so much!


Hi Connie,

Just a thought, but is it possible that blogger Storeytwin A is related to you? Sister or cousin? Same grandmother, perhaps?

Told me the only thing he wants for his birthday (which is soon) is a cake called Quizzy cake. He said his mother used to make it for him when he was a child. His description was the same as other emails I saw on your site. That's gotta be it. I tried to click on the link you gave them but with no success. Any help with this would be wonderful. Coincidentally. He grew up about 15 minutes from Graniteville, SC. Maybe they're all related ;-) Thank You, Judith

Hi Judith,

The owner of that "Whiskful" website that had the recipe appears to have taken down all of her blogs. There is not so much as an e-mail on any of them. I don't have the actual recipe, and I can't find that recipe anywhere else. I wrote to Connie, the original requestor in 2009 and asked her to send me the recipe. Maybe I'll hear from her, but it's been over three years. If she sends it, I'll forward it to you.


Merely linking to a recipe on another site can be problematic. I try to share the page views when I can by linking to recipes on other people's sites, but often those other sites vanish, or they delete the recipe that I linked to, or they change the location (url) of the recipe (which is, for the practical purposes of those who have linked to it, equivalent to deleting it.).

It's been about 5 weeks now, and I have had no response from Connie. Connie is, at this point, the only person I know from whom I could get that recipe. I have no e-mail addresses for "Whiskful" or "Storeytwin A".

I'm Looking for a recipe. I've tried the one on your site but is not like the one 
I ate as a child in Cuba. Please help me find the original way to make this Turron 
de Mani Cuban style. I think this recipe is in the Island and no one that knows how 
to make it will give it up. Hopefully you could help me find out if someone did. 

Hello Marbel,

I cannot find a Cuban recipe for Turron de Mani . There is a Venezuelan recipe here:

Hot Cheese Dip in Bread Bowl

----- Original Message ----- From: Ev To: Phaedrus Sent: Thursday, December 03, 2009 9:49 PM Subject: Hot Cheese Dip Do you have a recipe for a hot cheese dip made of several kinds of cheeses, mayonnaise, chopped green onion, sprinkle of garlic salt, and baked in a hollowed-out loaf of French bread? I think there was Parmesan cheese and cream cheese, but thought there was another cheese besides those two. It was then served with the cubed bread cut from the French loaf of bread and/or crackers. Would appreciate hearing from you. Ev

Hello Ev,

I wish that I could help, but I cannot find a recipe that fits your description. Sorry.


EV 12/09 requested hot cheese dip recipe. This should be close. Bryan in Mississippi

A great appetizer recipe for a party or holiday gathering.
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese 
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened 
1 1/2 cups sour cream 
1/2 cup chopped cooked ham 
1/3 cup chopped green chiles 
1/3 cup chopped green onions 
1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 
1 (1-lb) round loaf French bread
In mixing bowl, combine shredded cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, chopped ham, chile peppers, 
green onions, and Worcestershire sauce; stir until well blended. Set dip aside. 
Cut a thin slice from top of bread loaf; set slice aside. Using a gentle sawing motion, cut 
vertically to, but not through, bottom of the loaf, 1/2 inch from the edge, to cut out center 
of bread. Lift out center of loaf; cut into 1-inch cubes and set aside. Fill hollowed bread 
loaf with the dip; cover with reserved top slice of bread loaf. Wrap reserved loaf with foil. 
Bake dip at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve with reserved bread cubes, crackers, or potato chips.
Makes about 4 cups of dip.
