Snazzy Sausage Stars

The spicy sausage mixture inside the crisp won-ton wrappers makes this recipe a favorite at our family gatherings. My cousins were the ones who introduced me to the snazzy appetizer and it has become one of my all time favorites. If you really want to impress your guests or show off your culinary skills, bring this appetizer to a party, it is the one that's sure to be a success!


1 lb. sausage (You can use breakfast sausage or mild Italian sausage with their casings removed)
8 oz. bottle of ranch dressing
Block of Monterrey Jack with jalapeno pepper
1/2 cup green olives, chopped
1 pkg of won-ton wrappers


Crumble and brown the sausage in skillet and then drain well. Shred the entire block of cheese and mix with the sausage, olives and ranch dressing.

Spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray and place won-ton wrapper in each of the muffin cups. Press wrappers in being careful not to puncture them. Bake in oven set at 350 degrees for five minutes and then remove from oven. Add the sausage mixture to the wrapper cups and return to the oven for 5-8 minutes. The wrappers should be a little brown on the tips.


P.S....The sausage mixture can be refrigerated for up to two weeks!
