Sausage Wontons

These are my new favorite appetizer. I've had them many times, but never knew the recipe until I met my friend, Kim. Thanks Kim! I am so happy she gave this to me and let me tell you, they're deadly! I recently hosted a party and almost every guest asked me how to make these. That's a good sign that they are a classic, party must-have! Enjoy!
P.S. And they're super easy :)

1 lb. hot sausage, browned and drained
2 c. Sharp Cheddar, shredded
2 c. Monterey Jack, shredded
1 sm. can chopped black olives, drained
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 c. milk
2 pkg. wonton wrappers (in refigerated section)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix Hidden Valley Ranch, mayo and milk together. In separate bowl, mix sausage, cheese and olives. Combine the two. Bake wonton wrappers for 7-8 minutes in muffin pan, until golden. Remove from oven. Stuff and bake for 5-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Serve warm. Lots of people also add red and/or green pepper, if you would like.

To make ahead: bake wrappers, cool and store in airtight container. Make sausage mix and refigerate until ready to bake.
