Hidden Valley Ranch Sausage Stars

"These are easy to make you can do the wonton wraps the day or so ahead and have the sausage mixture made in advance then just 5 minutes before serving you fill the wraps and pop them in the oven. For a lighter exterior I prefer to use Spring Roll wraps. Use your regular pork breakfast sausage. if you wish use Italian sausage or bratwurst"

Questions & Replies

  1. Has anyone baked these at home and put in a crockpot for easier transport?
  2. Is the filling for Hidden Valley Ranch Sausag Stars freezable?


  1. I love an appetizer that not only tastes great, but makes a nice visual presentation. This was a hit on both counts. Everyone loved them. Another added bonus is that it can be made ahead of time. Thanks Bergy for sharing!! :-)
  2. I've been making these for years and they are always a huge hit. One of the things I did a couple of years ago was switch to using mini fillo cups (Athens is the brand name) instead of the wonton wrappers. They're much easier to work with and you don't need to bake them first. Enjoy!!
  3. I have made these for years, instead of the fresh red peppers, I use the roasted red peppers in the jar. I try to save some of the mix & scramble eggs in morning and mix in with sausage and wrap in Tortillas. Best breakfast burritos you/ve ever had!
  4. These were great. My Dad said give it at least 50 stars. I was now told to make these for all get togethers. They were easy to make and tasted great too! Thanks Bergy.
  5. I served these all last summer-they were a huge hit. Drain your sausage really well in paper towels to prevent the won ton wrappers getting to greasy. I left out the bell pepper ( my husband is not a fan) and they were still 5 star.


  1. These are a family favorite, but please take a very helpful hint and use scoop type Tortilla chips instead of fussing with the Filo or Won-Ton wrappers. You're done in HALF the time! You still warm them in the oven and they're twice as good!
  2. I made this for football munchies and it was very tasty. I must admit I had to make a few changes, if I had used the right ingredients it would be a five star winner. I had ground beef instead of sausage in the freezer, so I used that and added some onions, garlic, and sage to the beef. I left out the peppers, as the BF does not like them. We liked them as is, but I am sure we will enjoy it made with sausage as well. I halved the recipe and that was more than enough for us. I think these are great for a goody tray, will definitely make this again very soon.
  3. I just made these for new years eve (2008)and they turned out GREAT! my husband can't keep his hands off them! lol Instead of using vegetable oil, I used Mazola Pure which has no cholesterol or fat. This was a very simple recipe and I don't like to cook! I will definately make more!!
  4. I thought I'd reviewed this earlier, so I want to say that these are fantastic as written. Since then, I've made them using pepper jack cheese instead of plain jack, and have sometimes used minced green onions or green pepper instead of the red pepperand have omitted the olives. A versatile and very pretty appetizer!
  5. YUMMY!! My very favorite appetizer (& I'm not normally fond of sausage)...but these are great!! I don't oil the muffin tin but I do brush the wrappers w/oil. I use green chilies instead of red peppers & omitted the olives--due to personal preference only!


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
