Sausage Won Tons

Makes 15-20 appetizer servings 1 pound sausage, cooked and crumbled (hot, medium or mild) 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese 1 cup ranch dressing 1 package won ton shells or squares Preheat oven to 350°F. In frying pan, crumble sausage and cook over medium-high heat. Drain fat from fully cooked sausage, mix in bowl with cheeses and dressing. Grease two mini-muffin pans very lightly with baking spray. (If you don't have mini muffin pans, regular muffin pans will work.) Place one won ton in each muffin space; gently push down so that the square corners of won ton shells are standing straight up. You are creating space for the filling. Drop a small amount of filling into each cup (you should be able to fill two mini-muffin trays). (Or, use just half of the mixture and freeze the rest to pull out when unexpected guests arrive. Just be sure to have won ton shells onhand.) Bake at 350°F for about 10 minutes, but keep your eye on them. The edges of the won tons brown quickly - watch for golden brown color. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
