Sausage and Cheese Wontons

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I prepared some desserts and appetizers for our family reunion. This was one of the appetizers we made. It came from a collection of recipes her coworkers put together many years ago. They were a big hit at the reunion, and everyone raved about them! Make these for your next party!

Sausage and Cheese Wontons
from Central Office Recipe Collection

2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
2 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 small can chopped black olives
1 bottle ranch dressing (regular size)
1 pound sausage
1 pack of Wonton wrappers (near the bags of lettuce usually)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray muffin pan(s) with nonstick cooking spray. Place 1 wonton in each cup of the muffin tin. Place in oven for about 6 minutes until wontons begin to brown. Remove from pan, and finish with remaining wontons.

Meanwhile, brown sausage and drain excess grease off. Place sausage and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Mix together until all ingredients are incorporated. Once the wontons are browned, spoon mixture into each shell. Microwave wontons for about 1 minute, or until cheese has melted. Alternatively, you could place them back in the oven for a minute to warm mixture and melt cheese. Just be careful not to burn wontons. Serve warm.

Yum! I've made those before and we love them:-) I think I found the recipe in Taste of Home... Thanks for reminding me of the recipe! I think they will be a great appetizer idea for watching football!
