These can be made ahead of time!
1 pound Dean’s hot sausage
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz Ranch dressing
5 (2.1 ounce) packages frozen mini phyllo shells
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook sausage in a large skillet, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain.
Combine the sausage, cheese and Ranch dressing in a large bowl. Fill each phyllo shell with a heaping teaspoon of the sausage mixture. (Freeze at this point, if desired)
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cheese melts. (Add 2-3 minutes to baking time if baking frozen tarts)
