This week, we're sharing the greatest hits from Recipe of the Day's lifespan. Today's is a delicious and popular appetizer recipe.

INGREDIENTS

1 (16 oz.) pkg wonton wrappers
1/2 medium onion (finely diced)
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup chopped black olives, drained
1 lb ground sausage
1/2 red bell pepper (finely diced)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup Ranch-style salad dressing

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees a miniature muffin pan with cooking spray. Brown the sausage and saute the onion and bell pepper. Insert wonton wrappers into the muffin pan so as to form small cups. (Use a little shot glass to push the wonton wrappers in to the holes.) Bake five minutes in the preheated oven. Allow the baked wrappers to cool. Remove from the pan. In a medium bowl, mix the sausage mixture, Monterey Jack, Cheddar, black olives and Ranch-style dressing. Fill the baked wonton wrapper cups with the mixture. Bake the filled wonton wrappers 10 to 15 minutes, until the sausage mixture is bubbly and slightly brown. Watch closely so wonton wrappers do not burn.
