Cheese & Sausage Bundles

Yield

Makes 40 appetizers

Ingredients

Salsa
1/4 pound bulk hot Italian pork sausage
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 can (4 ounces) diced mild green chiles, drained
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
40 wonton wrappers
1 quart vegetable oil for deep frying

Preparation

  1. Prepare Salsa; set aside and keep warm. Brown sausage in small skillet over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring to separate meat. Drain off drippings.
  2. Combine sausage, cheese, chilies and onion in medium bowl. Spoon 1 round teaspoon sausage mixture near 1 corner of wonton wrapper. Brush opposite corner with water. Fold corner over filling; roll into cylinder.
  3. Moisten ends of roll with water. Bring ends together to make a "bundle," overlapping ends slightly; firmly press to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and wonton wrappers.
  4. Heat oil in heavy 3-quart saucepan over medium heat until deep-fat thermometer registers 365°F. Fry bundles, a few at a time, about 1-1/2 minutes or until golden. Adjust heat to maintain temperature. (Allow oil to return to 365°F between batches.) Drain on paper towels. Serve with Salsa.
