How to make Halloween sausage mummies
Preheating the oven
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Preparing the dough
If you are using ready-made dough, let it thaw according to the instructions on the package. If you are making your own, roll it out to about 3-4mm thick. Cut the dough into thin strips with a knife.
Place the “mummies” on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown.
While the “mummies” are still warm, add small olives or capers where you left the space for the “eyes” to make the eyes.
Serve warm with ketchup or other favorite dipping sauce.

Frequently Asked Questions about Halloween Sausage Mummies
What sausages should I use?
You can use any sausages you like. Traditional, chicken, beef or even vegetarian alternatives. The important thing is that they should be of medium size so that they can be easily wrapped in batter.
Can I use a dough other than puff pastry?
Yes, you can also experiment with other types of dough, such as pizza dough. However, puff pastry gives the right appearance of “bandages” for mummies.
How can I make “eyes” for mummies if I don’t have olives or capers?
You can use small pieces of dark or white chocolate, seeds or even small pieces of vegetables.
What sauce would you recommend for serving?
Classic ketchup or mustard are great choices. If you want something spicier, you can also try chili or barbeque sauce.
How long should I bake the mummies so that they are not too dark?
We recommend following the instructions in the recipe and checking the mummies regularly, as each oven may be slightly different. They should be golden brown and the dough should be baked.
Can I prepare the mummies in advance and bake them later?
Yes, you can make them ahead of time, refrigerate and bake just before serving.
Make sure they are well covered so the dough doesn’t dry out.
What other ingredients can I add to the recipe?
You can add different spices, herbs or, for example, cheese inside the sausage for a more interesting taste experience.
