  • 1 jar Pepperochini peppers (I got mild)

  • For the Cheese Sauce:
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups half-and-half

Directions

  • In a heavy, medium saucepan melt the butter over low heat.
  • Add the garlic and then the flour and stir to combine.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Increase the heat to medium and whisk in the half-and-half little by little.
  • Cook until thickened, about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from the heat; add 2 cups of the grated Parmesan.
  • Season with the salt, pepper and stir until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. C
  • over and set aside.
  • Heat a heavy saucepan or deep fryer to medium. Cook the wontons until light brown.
  • This only takes a few seconds per side.
  • Set aside on paper towels to drain.
  • Pile the wontons on a large serving platter. Drizzle with warm cheese sauce.
  • Add sausage, chicken and peppers.
  • Top with shaved Parmesan. EAT IT!

Notes

This is an indulgence meal. The chips are made fresh, the cheese sauce is rich...but boy, it sure hits the spot.
