Won ton cups (savory)

You asked for my easy appetizer recipes.  My guests enjoy this one that has many variations and goes together quickly while making a presentation that looks like it took time.  First preheat oven to 400; then spray mini muffin pans with PAM.  Gently place wonton wrappers in each cup (there will be some overlap). Cook for 4 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool.  These can be kept in an airtight container for a long time to have at hand for unexpected guests.  There are several variations that I use and many that haven't a recipe so to speak.  #1  Cook  1 lb.crumbled Italian sausage until browned and remove with slotted spoon to a bowl, leaving fat.
  Add 1 cup each of shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese (Sargento makes a blend), and 1/2 cup ranch dressing,  
 Fill won ton wrappers. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 or until bubbly.  

  #2  Substitute 2 cups shredded or diced cooked chicken, cheddar and swiss cheeses and thousand island dressing   # 3 Spoon in homemade or store bought artichoke dip.  

These are also baked and served hot.  Cold versions include filling with shrimp salad or a salsa and black bean combo.  Always a hit!
