Sausage Wontons

These little guys are great for last minute party snacks! They are easy and simple to prepare. With a toddler at my side, I am usually making quick and simple recipes! Creamy and cheesy goodness……yum yum!

Ingredients

1 Pkg. Wonton Wraps

1 Lb. Sausage

2 Blocks Cream Cheese (room temperature)

1/2 C. Parmesan Cheese

1 1/2 C. Cheddar Cheese (can use Colby Jack or Sharp Cheddar)

1/2 C. Ranch Dressing

1 tsp. Garlic Salt

1 can diced Black Olives (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Lightly spray muffin tins and place a wonton wrapper in each. You can leave edges sharp like mine or you can fold them in a little. Just make sure to leave enough space in the middle for the filling. In the oven they go for 5 minutes. When they are done take out of the muffin tin and place wontons on a baking sheet. Repeat process until all wontons are cooked. While waiting on the wraps, brown the sausage and drain grease. Place cooked sausage back in the pan and add all ingredients. Stir on low heat until cheese is melted. Place a spoonful or two of the filling in each wonton. Depending on how much filling you want in each. Back in oven they go for another 5-8 minutes. Until the wonton is brown.

Guacamole

My family LOVES some guacamole!! It is so easy to make. We eat it with chips, crackers, veggies, on top of grilled chicken or hamburgers, almost anything!! If you have a awesome store named Aldi in your area definitely try shopping there! Their avacados are usually super cheap. I believe they were .30 a piece last week! I LOVE my Aldi store. OK, don’t make fun of my awesome picture taking skills. I’ll get better…just give me time! Lol Here’s the recipe. Remember, my recipes are going to make a large amount since there are 8 of us. So just cut recipe in half or save what you don’t eat for the next few days! Enjoy

Guacamole

Ingredients

  • 8-10 Ripe Avocados
  • 2 Limes
  • Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 c. Fresh Cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 Small Red Onion
  • Small Jalapeno (optional)

Directions

Prepare Avocados and place in a large bowl. Mash them with a potato masher, or a fork if you don’t have one. After it’s somewhat smooth, add the chopped onion and cilantro. Next add the juice of both limes. We love lime flavor, if you don’t just use the juice from one! Finally, add the garlic salt. I use about 1 teaspoon. Maybe start with 1/2 teaspoon and add a little at a time until you reach the flavor you like.

Now, some of my kids like spicy and some do not. So when I get time to make two different batches I add a small, well diced jalapeno to one of them. Make sure to get the seeds out before you chop up! Sometimes I can’t find fresh Cilantro so I make it without. The guac still tastes amazing and fresh! Enjoy as is or make it your own!
