Sausage Stars

I had been looking for recipes that contained wonton wrappers prior to Super Bowl since I had almost a full package of wonton wrappers that I did not want to waste.  I just happened to find this recipe on Less Cake {more frosting} a few days prior to Super Bowl, and I knew that these would be a hit. At first I thought “ranch and sausage”? But the ranch acted like a cream base in this delectable little bite. Whatever you do, make sure you prebake your wonton wrappers. I did that on the first batch, and because I had a house full of guest I failed to do that on the second batch (I had a brain-fart. What can I say–it happens!). They were good the second time around, but the first batch was great! 
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Serves: 12 (2 per person)

Ingredients: 

  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 cups cooked sausage
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups monterey jack cheese
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • 2 tbsp minced black olives
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

Directions: 

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 

2. In a large bowl combine the cooked sausage, cheeses, ranch dressing, black olives, and red bell pepper. 
3. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray then take a wonton wrapper and press it down into a muffin tin. Make sure that the wrapper at least forms into a cup that has a bottom. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.
4. Once the wrappers have been baked for 5 minutes you will want to fill each of the “cups” with the filling. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the wrappers are crispy. Serve hot and enjoy!
