Here’s a tasty hot appetizer for all those parties that feature fun finger foods. I’ve made this recipe several times, and these bites always disappear so fast. It’s really easy. —Shirley Van Allen, High Point, North Carolina


  • 1 pound Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend


  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, garlic powder and basil. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, 8-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, press wonton wrappers into 24 miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° until lightly browned, 8-9 minutes.
  3. Spoon sausage mixture into cups. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, 5-7 minutes longer. Serve warm.

Can you freeze Sausage Wonton Cups?

Cool appetizers; freeze them in freezer containers, separating layers with waxed paper. To use, reheat wonton cups in coated muffin pans in a preheated 350° oven until crisp and heated through.
