Superbowl Side Dish, Ranch Sausage Stars

The guys beg for these for football games every year! Ranch Sausage Stars ohsweetbasil.com

Ready for the Superbowl?? I can’t wait to make this delicious Superbowl appetizer, ranch sausage stars. There’s something kind of awesome about ranch. I do not at all understand when people don’t like it. It’s actually what got me to eat salad finally. I resisted the whole salad thing until I was in highschool!

Can you believe that? But at one point  I was really hungry and we were all on vacation at the beach. We headed to a restaurant for dinner and not only had it taken quite a while to get to the restaurant but once we arrived it was super slow service. My mom had ordered a side salad with her clam chowder and I was so hungry I was desperate. I asked her if I could just have a crouton and she said, “if you try the salad too!” I carefully, and half whining stuck my fork in that awful, crunchy, watery, romain lettuce, stabbed a huge, buttery crouton and delicately dipped it in the ranch so I could say I’d done it even though there was only a little dab on there.

And it was good.

It was creamy.

And I had discovered a new love, croutons and ranch. The lettuce wasn’t bad either and over the next few years I learned that I actually love salad and ranch! Which has nothing to do with these ranch sausage stars, but you should still make them because hello, RANCH baby!

  • Do these freeze well? Thinking of doing them as a passed cocktail appetizer before a wedding receptions and would need to have about 400 on hand to reheat? Thoughts?

    • Hi Connie,
      You could bake and freeze the wontons, but you’ll want to do the rest of it fresh.

  • Where can I find those wonton wrappers here in Pakistan? I’m sure they’re not available so do you have a substitute for it?

    • Reply
    • I’m so sorry, but I’m not sure exactly what you could substitute. You could try pasta dough rolled very very thin.

  • What kind of sausage do you use for this recipe? I can’t wait to try it!

  • I have made these for over 10 years. I make them for our office Christmas party, New Years Eve parties and at special times during the year. When I say I’m going to have the parties catered, people groan and specifically request these stars. I make them with crushed red pepper instead of the diced green and red bell pepper. So many compliments!
