Sausage and Cheese Cups

News from the Jones household: We have made major changes in our schedule the last week. For the first time since Lincoln’s was five, he is not swimming on the swim team every day. People! That is like an 1.5 gift of time added to my day. Literally! Lincoln swam for an hour a day four days a week, so by the time I drove him to the pool and waited, it took an hour and half. We decided he needed a break and time to try other sports. so he’s taking tennis and golf lessons which are only two days a week. He is enjoying the change and the challenge of learning new sports.

Ryder has swam on and off for the last few years, but has never been as passionate about it as Lincoln. We enrolled him in tennis. He had his first lesson today. As I was driving him to practice, he was talking non-stop, which is what he does when he’s nervous! So I’m accustomed to it and I just let him talk replying with the occasional ‘huh’ and ‘yeah’. As we were parking he said, “Mommie, I hope there’s just one person here I know. Then I hope I don’t know anybody else and I get to make new friends. I like making new friends!”…. I did laugh out loud! That’s my Ryder, he’s just like his Dad! He could give a flip about what he’s doing as long as there are people around to talk to and socialize with!

He’s like that where ever we go. He’ll make friends with anybody anywhere! Ryder loves to tailgate because there are tons of people to talk to, play with and plenty of pretty girls to look at. Yep, he may only be eight, but he knows a pretty girl when he sees one!

So we tailgate on Saturday for the first time this season and I decided to make a simple dish that’s been one of our favorites for a long time. Sausage and Cheese Cups are so simple and so delicious! Prep these appetizers the day before, makes party prep or tailgating a breeze!

  1. Spray mini muffin tins with non-stick spray. Press wonton wrappers in the tins carefully so as not to tear. fold edges back and flat to open up the cup.
  2. Bake 350 degrees 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. {You can do this ahead of time and store in an air-tight container until ready to fill.}
  3. Brown sausage and drain off fat. Cool.

  1. Looks like a great football season appetizer! I’m always looking for stuff like this to have at game time, thanks the guys will love it!

    • They were all eaten first last week when I took them. I think I’ll make then this weekend to, we’re going to a different tailgating (or is that cheating?)

  2. I love simple finger foods like this Paula! And yeah for the gift of time! Your picture is fantastic!

  3. My daughter swims in the summer and my son dives and plays tennis only in the summer. We have the same thing around here if your kid swims all year it’s 4 to 5 days a week. A big chuck of time. Both my kids started fencing which will probably be 2 days a week. I wish they would play a school team sport then I won’t have to drive and wait. Not always WIFI but I like to read too. What do you do to pass the time?
    Well, sausage is a favorite in my family and these are adorable too.

  4. Paula, It’s interesting to hear about your sons. I hope they enjoy their new sports and staying dry! Almost forgot, these Sausage Cheese Cups look elegant and would be nice for the dinner party too….had to pin ‘em.

  5. Isn’t it funny how two brothers can be so alike yet so different?! My boys are always throwing me for a loop with their unique personalities… ;) And your sausage & cheese cups look just delicious, Paula! They’d be just as perfect for a fancy party as a tailgate party…I know I’d happily eat them both places. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

  6. Hi Paula! I’m obsessed with cupcakes and will try any recipe that involves a cup! The sausage mixture that you put inside the wonton cups sounds so yummy. I’ve pinned this and my husband and I will probably eat the lot between the two of us!
