I made these around Christmas time when we had a family gathering, and oh boy are they delicious! They were definitely the most popular item of the night! If you like garlic, you will really enjoy these.

Garlic, Sausage and Cheese Bites

  • 1 8oz block of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pound bulk breakfast sausage
  • 1 head of garlic, plus 1 additional clove
  • Red pepper flakes (optional, if you want a bit of spice)
  • Won Ton Wrappers, or egg roll wrappers cut into fourths
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 375. Cut the top off the head of garlic and place it on a baking sheet covered with foil and pour olive oil over it. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and cloves are soft & mushy.

Meanwhile, crumble sausage in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat until browned. Finely chop additional clove of garlic, and add to the sausage. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. In a large bowl combine the  sausage and garlic, cream cheese, roasted garlic, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Beat the mixture with a hand mixer until well combined.

Spray a mini-muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Add a won ton wrapper one cup of the muffin tray and fill with about 1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp of the garlic cheese mix. Moisten the edges of the won ton wrapper with water and pinch the won ton wrapper together to seal, then spray with non-stick cooking spray, repeat until the whole tin is full of lil’ garlic bites!

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown and gorgeous!

I missed Snack Food Sunday last week, but Nina over at Spice N’ It Up didn’t! She made these cheese and crackers with a delicious looking raspberry chipotle sauce. Then this week she made a delicious and healthy hummus!
