You will know that the starter I made for my Halloween dinner party was Bloody Mary Soup. My son doesn’t much care for soup so I made a batch of Baked Mummies so that he too could have a starter, and there would be plenty to go around if anyone else wanted. All they are, are sausages wrapped in pastry!
Simply take a pack of sausages and a pack of ready-made puff pastry. I use chipolata sausages as they cook quickly.
Cut the pastry into long strips and wrap around each sausage starting at the top, leaving a little gap for the ‘head’ and then continuing to wrap and wind around to resemble the mummy bandages.
Bake for 20 minutes in a hot oven (I tend to use 200C on my oven) until the sausages are cooked and the pastry is golden.
You can add a squirt of ketchup or mustard for eyes, but on this occasion I didn’t, I forgot!
