Sausage Stuffed Wonton Wrappers

It seems like I was in only 2 places this weekend ~ the pool & the kitchen. But it was awesome! My normally cautious 5yr old son who hasn't had swimming lessons yet decided to take off his life vest & just start swimming. He started out by just going a few feet but by the next day my angel was all over the pool, going the entire length with me close by. You can imagine how proud we were.

As for kitchen duty, I was just on a roll. There were a few recipes I was dying to make, these being one of them. I served them both days for our parents who came to see all the work we're having done in our bathroom, hence, the reason for us staying close to home this weekend. These were not only fun to make but pretty to look at as well as delicious. We all enjoyed them, including the nice gentlemen working on our bathroom!!!!

AND for all of my pork hater friends, I think these could go well with an Asian chicken mixture.



1 pound bulk spicy pork sausage
2 medium carrots, finely shredded
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
1 cup (4 ounces) finely shredded pepper Jack cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) finely shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
36 wonton wrappers
1 tblsp butter, melted
1/8 tsp garlic powder
Sliced cherry tomatoes, optional

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, combine the sausage, carrots, onion, peppers, cheeses, sour cream, garlic & lemon-pepper.


Press wonton wrappers into miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Spray wontons lightly with more cooking spray. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Bake at 350° for 8 to 8 1/2 minutes or until lightly browned.





Spoon sausage mixture into cups. Bake 5-6 longer or until heated through. Garnish with tomatoes if desired. Yield: 3 dozen.

{My Thoughts}

The filling made a lot more than 36. I had halved this recipe & still got 36. I saved leftover filling for the next day & made them again. Just to freshen up the batch, I threw in a tad more onion & lemon pepper. Also, instead of brushing the edges with melted butter on the 2nd day batch, I sprayed lightly with cooking spray & sprinkled with garlic powder, around the edges and inside. They were even better!!!!!

Also, the wonton wrappers can be made ahead of time & stored tightly in a container. How easy is that?!

Mommy Mac said...

I'm thinking the pool and the kitchen are great places to be...social lives outside the home tend to be overrated.

Tell that to me on the 3rd rainy day in a row with a 4 and 2 year old!!!

Love it. Wanting some of it right now. Get in my belly!!!

FROGGITY! said...

those look like the perfect food for my hubby. how do i make the wonton wrappers? do they come in a pack like phyllo or something, or do you make them from scratch? (sorry, i have never made eggrolls or wontons, i am a newbie that would love to learn!!!) :)

FROGGITY! said...

these look great. I took the chicken tortilla bake to my father in law after he had knee surgery and he is still talking about it. You should write a book, can't wait to try the white wine and green tea spritzer!

Brenda said...

Those look like fun! I've never seen the wonton wrappers used that way.

Michelle said...

I can't tell you how many times I have bought wonton wrappers on to throw them away because I let them sit too long. They scare me, but I know they shouldn't!

FROGGITY! said...

Coco said...

OK, I made the bleu cheese and pear wraps. OH MY WORD! I loved them and they look so pretty on a platter.

Hi muffin butt!

MMMMM, yummy, yummy, yummy.

I thought about you yesterday when I made a delicious taco recipe for the second time in the past week. SO good. My husband found it in a biker cookbook. It's called inferno tacos and you use beer and chipotle peppers.

Must share.

Fresh Mommy said...
