Breakfast Sausage Mummies

Breakfast Sausage Mummies

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 8 breakfast sausage links (turkey or pork)
  • 2 sheets 6" x 6" puff pastry sheets
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • yellow mustard
  • flour for dusting
This recipe makes 8 mmmm... mummies.

On a lightly floured cutting board, roll out one sheet of the puff pastry until it's half of its thickness and about double in size.

Puff Pastry Breakfast Sausage Mummies Using a pizza wheel or pastry cutter, slice the dough into 1/2 inch wide strips.

Using your finger or a pastry brush, lightly wet one side of each strip with ice water (this will help the pasty strips stick to each other as you roll and bake).

With the wet side of the dough facing out, wrap a strip of pastry around each sausage in a candy cane pattern. As you get near the top of the sausage, leave a gap in the pastry pattern to make room for the mummy's eyes. If a single pastry strip isn't long enough, just continue with one of the other strips.

Repeat steps above until you've made all eight mummies.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the mummies with their faces upward on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Leave 1 inch of space between each mummy.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the mummy's bandages are golden brown.

Remove mummies from the oven and allow them to cool for about 3 minutes.

To make mummy eyes, dip the tip of a knife or the end of a chopstick into a dab of mustard and carefully dollop tiny eyes in the space you reserved for the face. If you're very gentle and careful, you could also try adding a nose or a mouth.

Breakfast Sausage Mummies

These mummies are ghoulishly good on their own or terrifyingly terrific as a side dish. If made as a Halloween party favor, consider serving with additional yellow mustard or a honey mustard sauce for dipping.

This looks so good. I think I'm going to try using syrup for the eyes instead of mustard.

Question - should the sausage be cooked first before baking or raw?

Note From MrBreakfast - Hi Judy. When I made the ones in the pictures above I started with uncooked sausage links. After baking the prepared mummies for about 15 minutes, the pastry was nicely browned and the sausage was fully cooked.

We made them with crescent roll dough and turkey sausage links. Our mummies were a little fatter than your mummies... but ever so delicious. Is there any thing other than mustard for the eyes? That was the hardest part.
