Not only are these sausage stars easy, they are insanely addicting! I had blogged about them before (a long, long time ago), but thought they were worth another blog post. Yes, they are that good. Yes, you will gain 5 lbs. from eating an entire pan of them. And yes, you can thank me (or yell at me) later :)
1 pound sausage, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese (do not use pre-shredded)
1 1/2 cups grated Monterrey jack cheese (do not use pre-shredded)
1 cup prepared ranch dressing mix (make sure to use the dry ranch packet)
1 can (2.25 oz) sliced olives
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1 package fresh or frozen won ton wrappers
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
After cooking the sausage, blot it dry with a paper towel. In a large bowl, combine sausage with cheeses, prepared ranch dressing, olives and red peppers. Set aside.
Lightly grease a mini or regular muffin tin and press one won ton wrapper in each cup. Brush won ton wrappers lightly with vegetable oil. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven.
Fill won ton wrappers with sausage mixture. Bake 5 minutes or until bubbly. Makes 4 to 5 dozen.
