cup diced pepperoni (from 6-oz package)
can (8 oz) pizza sauce
cup shredded 6 cheese Italian cheese blend (4 oz)
cups shredded Cheddar-American cheese blend (8 oz)

Heat oven to 350°F. In 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in pepperoni and pizza sauce. Cook 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat until hot. Stir in Italian cheese blend and 1 cup of the Cheddar-American cheese blend until melted.
Arrange bread slices on 2 ungreased cookie sheets. Spread generous tablespoon of beef mixture on each slice. Top each with about 1 teaspoon of the remaining cheese.*
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated and crisp. Serve warm.
These are great after-school snacks to keep in the freezer. You can take out just the number you need for the kids and bake them.
