These easy Sausage Stars Appetizers are the perfect recipe for your next celebration.
Hey friends. I have one question. Are you game day ready yet? The planning and preparation are in full swing for the upcoming big game. Even if you don’t like any of the teams playing, there is one thing that is always a winner….the food! As I said a million times before, I am in it for the food as much as the game itself.
I first had these Sausage Stars at a friends house several years ago. Let me tell you, it was love at first bite. Sausage Stars Appetizers are perfect for any gathering and that includes watching the big game. If you remember a while back, I talked my love of wonton wrappers when I shared my Ham & Cheese Quiche Bites recipe. Wonton wrappers get a high five from me because they are so versatile. Fill them with sweet or savory ingredients.
Italian sausage is the star of this appetizer. I fried some along with bell peppers and a pinch of red pepper flakes for just a bit of zing.
Spray a miniature muffin pan with PAM non-stick cooking spray. Gently press the wonton into each cup. Fill with a heaping tablespoon of the sausage filling and top with a nice amount of shredded cheddar cheese….because cheese makes the world go around in my book!
When you bake these sausage stars, the wonton gets nice a crispy on the outside. I love the crunchy texture. The sausage and cheese meld together to create serious deliciousness. These bad boys can be prepped ahead of time too. You can even bake them in advance and heat them just before your guests arrive.
What’s on your menu for the big game? Share your meal time game plan below. I would love to hear all about it.
