Sausage Wonton Bites

I said it before and I’ll say it again, I could make a meal out of appetizers. In fact, that’s exactly what I did with these Sausage Wonton Bites. They were so delicious I didn’t have the heart to get rid of them, so dinner they became. Boy, are they yummy?

If you’ve been following IBC for some time, you might remember that I made a similar appetizer recipe several years ago using these handy wonton wrappers. The other recipe is for Artichoke Wonton Wrappers. They are made using the same method but have a different, but equally delicious filling. You can find that recipe here.

What I love about using these wonton wrappers to make an appetizer is that they are so easy to work with and they make whatever you put inside of them look really fancy and special. Folks will think you made these delicate pastry cups, but you can just pick them up at most grocery stores. (It can be our little secret.)

In this recipe, they are filled with pork sausage, chopped peppers and onions, Colby cheese, and ranch dressing. I bet you never cooked with ranch dressing before! It may seem like an odd thing, but it adds such wonderful flavor and creaminess to this recipe.

I promise that you and your guests are going to devour these scrumptious little bites. Let me show you how to make them!

How to Make Sausage Wonton Bites:

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Gently press the wonton wrappers into the mini muffin pan. This can be a bit tricky, so please reference the image below.

If you attempt to just press the wonton wrapper into the cup, it’s going to tear. You want to pinch the wrapper together into the flower shape shown above, insert it into the baking cup, and then gently press it into place. With this method, I had no tears.

Once all the wrappers are in place, bake until the edges of the wontons just start to brown: about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat. Break up the sausage into smaller pieces as it cooks. Cook until no longer pink.

Remove the sausage from the pan and drain excess grease.

To the same pan, add the chopped peppers and onions. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, then return the sausage to the pan. Add in the shredded Colby cheese and ranch dressing. Cook until the cheese is melted and heated through.

Add a heaping tablespoon of the sausage mixture into each wonton cup. Return the pan of filled wontons into the oven and bake for another 6-7 minutes or until the wontons are evenly brown.

Garnish with sliced green onions and serve immediately.

    Hi, these look pretty yummy. I was wondering if you could make them in a regular muffin pan? Maybe the wonton wrappers would not be large enough? Would like to know. Thanks!

      A regular muffin pan wouldn’t work for this recipe.
