Sausage and Cheese Wontons
- 1 Package Wonton Wrappers
- 1 LB Sausage
- 1 Cup Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
- 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Cup Ranch (I use much less, but then I HATE Ranch)
- About a 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
- Sour Cream for topping-Optional
To start with I coat both sides of the wontons with olive oil and then place the coated wrappers in a muffin tin.
After the wontons are all coated I put the tin in the oven preheated to 350 Degrees. I let them bake for about 5 to 10 minutes, until they are just starting to get toasted and turn brown. You have to be careful or else they will bake too much, and you will have to throw them out, voice of experience here!
While I have the wontons in the oven I go ahead and brown the sausage and get my cheese portioned out. I find that it is always better to buy a block of cheese and then shred it myself, it always cooks better and once again..cheaper.
Here are the wontons fresh out of the oven and placed on my current cooking tool, the Pampered Chef Round Pizza Stone. They really do make great products.
At this point you are ready to start assembling your creations.
Mix the browned sausage
with the cheeses
and don't forget the ranch, even though I forgot to get a picture of said ingredient.
Then fill up fill you slightly toasted wontons with the sausage mixture, just eyeball it and fill up each wonton.
Then all that is left to do is place them them back into your already hot oven for just a minute or three, until the cheese melts and you done!
I had a little left over so I decided to make my own version and substituted the disliked ranch, with the beloved Frank's Red Hot Sauce! They were great!
