Sausage Wonton Stars Recipe

Sausage Wonton Stars Recipe

These fancy-looking appetizers are ideal when entertaining large groups. The cute crunchy cups are stuffed with a cheesy pork sausage filling that kids of all ages enjoy. We keep a few in the freezer so we can easily reheat them for late-night snacking. —Mary Thomas North Lewisburg, Ohio

"I have made these many times just as written. They are absolutely wonderful. I made these for ladies golf today and they were a huge hit. Everyone was fighting to take any left home. I had to make them the day before and they were still wonderful. Better the same day but still great!"

"I love these, I do cut the wonton wrappers into rounds with a 2 3/4-3" biscuit cutter and call them Sausage Wonton "Moons".....maybe not as pretty, however leaving the wontons in stars, those little points are quite sharp."

"This is very close to the recipe I use. I spray the wonton wrappers with Pam before putting them in the oven the first time, instead of green onions I use a can of diced black olives, and I use more cheese and ranch dressing. I will have to give them a shot with green onions next time... if my wife allows it (once I make something she goes nuts over I am not allowed to tinker with it at all). :D"

"I made these for the first time last night and they were a huge hit! To lighten them up, I used turkey Italian sausage and low-fat (NOT fat free) Ranch dressing. I used a mix of pre-shredded colby and monterey jack cheese. They make a nice presentation and are different from other appetizers because of the wontons. Absolutely delicious, will definitely make them again."
