I love using wonton wrappers as the ideal no-fuss crust when making appetizers and small bites. They bake beautifully with nothing more than a light spritz of cooking spray or delicate brush with olive oil keeping preparation effortless. Holiday get-togethers call for small bites and finger foods. These cheesy Dijon sausage cups are just that. They can be served for breakfast, brunch or as an appetizer at any time of day.

Tips for Making Cheesy Dijon Sausage Cups

  • I begin this recipe with spicy-hot sausage but, it you’re a bit spice shy use a quality regular breakfast sausage for the base.
  • If you’re crazy for spice make these using pepper-jack cheese to kick them up another notch. For a terrific time saver.
  • I often prepare the filling one day in advance for a terrific time saver, then pop it into the fridge in an airtight container for storage. The following day I assemble the sausage cups just before baking.

I love that after baking each one is unique and looks star-like in shape. They’re certain to be a beautiful addition to your appetizer table. While they last. They’re the ideal addition to your holiday party and easy enough that you’ll be free to enjoy the event, too.

  1. They were fantastic!! Company loved them!! I made the stuffing ahead of time and even a small bag of grated cheese, both went into the freezer a couple of weeks ahead of time. Day of Thanksgiving for us I filled the wonton cups, sprayed with oil and topped with cheese. Put them into the fridge until company arrived and then popped them into the over. They went so well with a Smoked Old Fashioned and everyone raved!! Will be making them again for sure!!

    1. That makes me happy, Tara! That’s a brilliant way to do some of the prep work in advance. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian neighbors. ♥
