I got it from a Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
A holiday get together, drinks with friends or a Super Bowl party are just a few times you might want a great appetizer. Sausage Stars are a tasty choice to serve.
Press won ton wrappers into the cups of mini muffin tins.
Grate the cheddar cheese.
Brown the sausage in a skillet.
Combine the ingredients.
Toss together and spoon into pre-baked won ton wrappers.

Hidden Valley Ranch Sausage Stars Recipe
- 2 cups (1 lb.) cooked crumbled sausage
- 1 1/2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
- 1 cup prepared Hidden Valley Ranch Original Ranch Salad Dressing Mix (you can substitute bottled Ranch)
- 1 can (2.25 oz) sliced ripe olives
- 1/2 cup chopped red or green bell pepper
- 1 pkg. won ton wrappers (I find then in the vegetable case) or egg roll wrappers, cut into quarters
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blot the sausage dry with a paper towels, and combine with cheeses, salad dressing, olives and pepper.
Lightly grease a mini muffin pan with cooking spray and press 1 wrapper in each cup. I let the won ton wrappers come to room temperature and press them into each muffin cup using a tart shaper trying to keep won ton open for filling.
Lightly spray with vegetable spray and bake for 5 minutes until golden. Remove from tins; place on baking sheet. Fill with sausage mixture. Bake 5 minutes until bubbly.
Makes 4-5 dozen

A patient at a doctors office I worked for copied this recipe out of a magazine about 20 years ago and gave it to all of the women on staff. I’ve been making these nearly every Christmas since. They’re a family fave!
Hi Jamie! We probably got the recipe from the same magazine although I think I’ve been making them for longer than twenty years. So fun that we share the same holiday food tradition. Thanks a bunch for your visit and your comment! Sending very Merry Christmas wishes.

Old recipes are the best. They are like dear friends! I can picture in my mind how some of mine look and what is written on them.
Great recipe! Easy and sounds so delicious!
Anything in a wonton wrapper must be luscious.

We would love those! They look fantastic.
Have your heard of Pinterst.com? Well, I just "pinned" this recipe to my Yummy Food board!!
Looks and sounds sooo good!
These are my FAVORITE! After many years of eating yours & a few hours of searching around a few months ago i found the recipe and said "THATS the reason they are tangy! RANCH!" A delicious go to app for me! Thanks!
My mom and me have been making these for years. It's a tried and true recipe that is always a crowd pleaser. The one thing we do differently though is we normally use ground turkey instead of the sausage. Good post!
