Sausage Wonton Stars

These are fattening and yummy and are a pretty presentation.  Ranch dressing, sausage, cheese and crispy wontons what more can I say!

1/2 -1 c. Prepared Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
(I thought 1 cup was way too much but that is what the original recipe called for so I would recommend 1/2 cup)
1 lb Jimmy Dean or Owens regular sausage, browned and drained
1 cup Mexican 4 Cheeses or cheddar cheese ( you could also reduce this to 1/2 cup as well)
1/2 - cup green or red bell pepper (optional)
Green Onions diced (optional)
1 can sliced olives (optional)
1 - package Wonton wrappers (square ones look nicer)

Makes 24

Brown sausage and drain off any grease, then pat with paper towels to get as much grease of as possible (You need to do this other wise because of all the other fattening things going into the recipe it will get way greasy if you don't),  set aside. Mix ranch dressing according to package directions. Mix the sausage, prepared dressing, bell pepper and olives (if using) and cheese together. Place 2 won ton wrappers layered on top of each other cross ways in each muffin tin. (the original recipe only calls for one wrapper in each but we liked the wontons the best so double was way better).  Do this to get 24 cups or you can put a ton of the mixture in to make 12 but like I said before we liked the wontons and liked it better with less filling.   Bake 350 for 5-7 minutes until lightly golden brown. Watch them carefully so they dont get too brown. Remove from oven and add a couple tablespoons full of sausage mixture and sprinkle with optional green onions. Return to the oven and bake 5-7 minutes until cheese melts.
