Baked Sausage Wontons Recipe

"These bite-size appetizers offer a nice change from the usual party fare," notes Karen Rolfe of Dayton, Ohio. "It takes a little effort to assemble them, but the shells can be made ahead and frozen to cut party prep time."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients
