As a treat when we visited my mom, she would make something she called "Cheese Things".

Make a scratch pizza dough and roll into a large rectangle.
Cut into 4" squares.
Line 1/2 of square with fat rectangle of Velveta, leaving room around the edges.
Press dough closed with a fork and drop in a large quantity of piping hot grease. Not smoking hot but hot.
Cook until medium brown and cheese is melted.
Drain on paper bags and salt.

This treat was gone so fast you can't belive it.
Tasty

I can taste these already with a thin slice of backed ham added to the Velveeta. Have Fry Daddy will Cook...

Edit: Wife is rolling out some canned biscuits and slicing Velveeta. Mine will have jalapenos in them too. I think we are on a roll here. After a few I may have an increase in my roll.... Two's my limit..

Edit #2: Oh my Oh my. These are soooo gooood. The canned biscuits worked fine. Maybe next time we have homemade pizza crust I can bribe wife into making an extra for these two. These things are right up my alley.

So far so good. I only had two but boy where they good. Got to thinking more about using the homemade pizza dough with galic in it and maybe some fresh grated Parmesan. I did really miss the boat this first time as I had some of those little smoked sausages that would have been oh so good in there with that Velveeta and those jalapenos...
