Halloween Mummies – Fun Festive Hot-dogs

Happy Halloween!

This year would be maybe the first year my little one will go trick or treating. I am not entirely sure he understands what it means, but at least he is happy to wear a costume (a little cute skeleton, not scary at all) and happily digs into the treats I’ve prepared.

It doesn’t matter if you are celebrating this holiday or are just hearing for the first time about it, I am presenting one very easy and simple recipe how to bring some Halloween spirit into the day.

The recipe doesn’t need much ingredients, it takes no time to prepare and I am sure will go well with everyone at home, thinking also about the most fussiest of the eaters – the little ones.

I am presenting today a recipe for Halloween mummies, a hot-dog type food that you can plate as a holiday treat or just as a themed snack.

Try it yourself.

Ingredients (for 8 mummies):

  • ½ of one pack (500gr) puff pastry

  • 8 hot-dogs/sausages

  • mustard, to decorate

Preparation:

  1. Roll out the puff pastry in a thin layer and cut in narrow strings

  2. Wrap each hot dog up with the puff pastry strips and leave some space for the face of the mummy (either by wrapping the sausage using two strings, one for the head and one for the body, or by wrapping the whole hot dog using one string and then rearranging the parts that overlay so that to make some room for the face)

  3. Place the mummies on a grease-proof paper and bake for 25-30 minutes at 180-200°C, until baked and golden

Before placing the mummies in the oven, you can brush them either with milk or with beaten egg yolk. This would make them really beautiful in colour when baked.

You can also not do that, puff pastry bakes nicely and beautifully.

  1. When ready, remove from the oven and let the mummies cool down. When serving, decorate the hot-dogs by placing eyes on the mummies’ faces using the mustard

I served these Halloween mummies with sweet chilli sauce (bloody red), green salad and deviled pumpkin eggs (see the recipe below).

You will need:

  • 4-5 boiled eggs

  • 2-3tbsp mayonnaise

  • 50gr grated cheddar cheese

  • seasoning – salt, black pepper, parsley, garlic powder, paprika

  • 1 spring onion, to decorate

Preparation:

  1. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolk, arrange the egg whites halves in a plate

  2. In the food processor add the egg yolks, mayonnaise, cheese and seasoning. Blend until you get a smooth paste

  3. Pipe the mixture into the egg whites, decorate with a green piece of spring onion to get the pumpkin effect

Yum!

Do you celebrate Halloween? How do you usually do that, what recipes and treats do you prepare?

I would love to hear about your holiday spirit and what did you prepare to make your loved ones feel festive and happy. Just leave me a comment below.

Have a very sweet day!

    I love these mainly because they are easy to make! I’ve never had deviled eggs with cheese in them so I’d like to try this recipe even though it isn’t Halloween season anymore.

    I turned something into spiders about 4 years ago for a Halloween block party, but I never kept the recipe and don’t really remember what the food was! It’s a good thing I can come to this website to grab a recipe for different occasions because if it were up to the top of my head I’d be in trouble!

      Yeah, I like easy to make recipes the best. This year, because my little ones love mummies and because they never say No to hot-dogs, I made them these fun mummies for Halloween. But I think they might be used as party food, without the special “mummy” decorations anytime of the year.

      Happy holidays.
