I have a confession to make. I very rarely entertain. But once a year my friends and I enjoy a local charity event and I like to serve a little snack after the event. One year I served hummus which was a hit. This year my neighbor showed me how to make easy cheesy sausage wonton cups.

It’s Day 5 and we are sharing Holiday Party Food Ideas!
Last year for the 12 Days of Christmas party appetizer, I shared a quick and easy cocktail hotdog recipe made in the slow cooker. Oh, they are so g00d. Anyway back to this recipe I want to share with you.
We made them the other weekend and I must say I couldn’t stop eating them. The base is wontons. The filling is a combination of sausage and cheeses. Oh so good!
And the good part is they can be made all at once. Or make half a batch and put the wontons and mixture in the refrigerator.
It will stay good for a week or so. Or freeze and they will be just as good as freshly made.
I went over to Pat’s house and she showed me how to make easy cheesy sausage wonton cups. And what a treat to work in her newly remodeled kitchen. It is so gorgeous! I need a new kitchen.
Oh well back to our wonton cups. Pat said an easy way to open up the sausage is to use kitchen shears and cut the package in half.
The sausage will slide out. So much easier than trying to cut it from the top. I know because that is what I have always done.
Are you ready to learn how to make easy cheesy sausage wonton cups? Let’s get started.
- 1 Package Won Ton Wrappers Usually in the Produce Section of the Supermarket
- 1 Roll Jimmy Dean Regular Sausage
- 1 Cup Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing 8 oz bottle
- 1 Cup Monterey Jack Cheese or Colby Jack Cheese 8 oz package
- 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese 8 oz package
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray PAM into muffin tins. Place a Won Ton Wrapper into each tin. The sides will curl up a bit, just poke the middle into the pan. Bake for 5 minutes or until slightly brown.
In a frying pan, mash up and saute the sausage until no longer pink. Drain and place in a large bowl. Mix in the dressing and cheeses with the sausage.
When the wrappers come out of the oven, place about a teaspoon or less of the stuffing in each wrapper. Don't overstuff. Bake for 5 minutes, or until cheeses look melted.
If you want to only cook 2 dozen at a time, the stuffing stays good in the refrigerator for a week or so. You can also freeze the stuffing and Won Ton Wrappers. They still come out great.
