Tonight I'm making indian fry bread tacos with Hidden Valley Ranch Sausage Stars for an appetizer. The sausage stars a great appetizer to bring to a Thanksgiving/Christmas gathering. They look great on a platter, taste amazing, and seem like they'd take forever to make (but shhhhhh, they don't!). The majority can be made the night prior and just assembled shortly prior to baking.
Hidden Valley Ranch Sausage Stars
1 - Package Original Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
(prepared according to package directions)
1 lb Jimmy Dean regular (or I prefer spicy) sausage, browned & drained
1 - 8oz Bag Kraft Mexican 4 Cheeses
1/2 - cup red bell pepper (optional)
2 Tablespoons chopped black olices (optional)
1 - package wonton wrappers
Brown sausage and drain off any grease, set aside. Mix ranch dressing according to package directions. Mix the sausage, prepared dressing, bell pepper, black olives, and cheese together. Place won ton wrappers in a lightly greased muffin tin.
Bake 5-7 minutes until lightly golden brown. Watch them carefully so they dont get too brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool. When cooled, fill 3/4 full with sausage mixture. Return to the oven and bake 5-7 minutes until cheese melts.
***If making the day prior, mix ingredients and follow the first step to bake the won tons. Place won tons in a ziploc bag and store overnight. Refrigerate sausage mixture in covered bowl overnight.
