"Wonton cups are filled with a flavorful cheese and sausage mixture, then baked. Topped with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of green onions, these lovely appetizers will be the first to disappear! Impressive, yet easy to make!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a miniature muffin pan.
  2. Place ground Italian sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and remove from heat.
  3. Stir Monterey Jack cheese and Colby cheese into the warm sausage to melt. Stir in salsa.
  4. Gently press wonton wrappers into the prepared miniature muffin pan so that the edges are extending. Place a heaping tablespoon of the sausage mixture into each wonton wrapper.
  5. Bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until wonton edges begin to brown.
  6. Transfer baked filled wontons to a serving platter. Dollop each with approximately 1 tablespoon sour cream. Sprinkle with green onions.

This is a very simple recipe and very impressive. I brought a triple batch to a family gathering and went home with none. I left off the sour cream and green onion and prepared a simple dippin...

I love this recipe; try brushing the wonton 'cups' with oil, especially on the tips, prior to baking for 5 min. before filling with sausage mixture. Return to oven to bake an additional 5 min.

All in all the recipe was okay, but I would probably try ground beef next time.

These are quick and easy appetizers!!! The only thing I noticed was that they were a little salty... And if you are in a rush, the pre-made phyllo dough cups in the frozen food section at the...
