Don’t you just love that picture of her??

When I think of of baby shower food, bite-sized items comes to mind. Little food to celebrate a little person! Super creative I know, but these wonton cups are the perfect size by using a mini muffin pan. And they are flipping delicious.

The recipe came from my friend Brandi. The first time she made them, if I had known there were olives and mushrooms involved I may have never tried them but am so very glad that I did! It’s surprising how much I enjoy these wonton cups being that they contain two things I normally put forth a large effort to avoid. I blame it on all the cheesy sausage goodness and crispy exterior.

These wonton cups are best when served immediately. If you somehow have some leftover, do not reheat in the microwave as the wontons will not be crispy. I recommend a toaster oven or regular oven.

SAUSAGE AND CHEESE WONTON CUPS

Makes 4 dozen cups

Ingredients:

1 lb. bulk pork sausage

1 tsp ground sage

Salt and pepper

1 large red bell pepper, finely chopped

1 (4 oz.) can diced black olives

1 (4 oz.) can diced mushrooms

4 cups (16 oz.) shredded pepperjack or sharp cheddar cheese

3/4 cup prepared Ranch dressing

1 pkg. (12 oz.) wonton wrappers

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two mini muffin pans, set side.
  2. In a large skillet add sausage, sage, and salt and pepper to taste. Break up sausage and saute until no longer pink. Remove and drain on paper towel-lined plate to cool.
  3. Press half of the wonton wrappers into the cups of the prepared mini muffin tins. Bake for five minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix together the bell pepper, olives, mushrooms, cheese, and ranch. Add cooled sausage and mix well.
  5. Remove wonton cups from oven. Using half of the filling mixture, fill the cups. Bake 8-10 minutes more, or until golden and crispy. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers and filling.
  6. Serve immediately. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat in oven or toaster oven.

I could see these being very popular appetizer bites at a party! finger food somehow always tastes better than food you have to eat with a fork, no?

Is there anything better than wonton cups baked in muffin tins? They’re my favorite! These would be the best app ever – I SO wish this was a real, in-person shower :)

A friend of mine in MS makes something very similar to these, and they are amazingly good. Now I have a serious craving for them!
