Mummies for Dinner

I LOVE to do fun and spooky recipes for our family Halloween Dinner. This year was a little different. Due to scheduling conflicts we had our Family Halloween Dinner a couple nights early. It was also different because I wasn't feeling great the day of, so we had the food, but not the excitement leading up to it, and no spooky table decor. The boys were a BIG help! So, simple as it was, here was our menu:

Mummy Pizzas

Mummy Toes and Fingers

Mummy Guts and Teeth

I Love to get recipes from Family Fun. They have great ideas for kid crafts, costumes, decorations, and recipes. Check it out!

So here are the recipes I used. I did change each of them, just slightly.

Mummy Finger and Toes
Recipe Ingredients:

Cocktail wieners
2 pkgs. Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
Ketchup or mustard

1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. Roll out crescent dough, but don't separate it into triangles, keep them in rectangles (4 rectangles per package). Pinch seams together. Cut them into 3/4 inch wide strips.

3. Roll each wiener in a dough strip.

4. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes.

I didn't do this, but should have- Before baking, cut a wedge into the end of each cocktail wiener to make a toenail. After baking, fill the toenail with ketchup or mustard.
When I got to the last rectangle of dough I had more wieners than dough. So I actually cut the dough in half, and made smaller rolls. I think this actually looked better. They weren't so fat when they baked. But... then you would have more dough than toes...? Just a side note.

I used The Pampered Chef Cutting Board to measure and the Pizza Cutter to cut the dough strips. I baked them on a flat stone, of course.

Mummy Pizzas

English muffins
Pizza sauce
Black olives
Red or green pepper

Step 1 Heat the oven to 350° F. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin (toast it first, if you like).

Step 2 Set olive slices in place for eyes and add round slices of green onion or bits of red or green pepper for pupils. ( I didn't do this)

Step 3 Lay strips of cheese across the muffin for the mummy's wrappings.

Step 4 Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty.

I used the Small Scoop to scoop and spread the sauce. I grated some Parmesan Cheese over the sauce using the Rotary Grater, and added some Canadian bacon. Then continued with the face. For the cheese I used the Cheese Knife to cut it into strips. The recipe also said you could use string cheese and just peel it apart. We used the Egg Slicer Plus to slice the olives. And baked it on the new Round Stone .

I can't find where I got the drink recipe from, but I did my own version anyway.

Mummy Guts and Teeth


Apple Juice or Cider
Apple- Peeled, cored, sliced, and cut
Seedless Grapes- cut in half

In a punch bowl, combine the Apple Juice, cut up apple and grapes. Add ice, if desired.

The apples should look like teeth and the grapes like eyeballs, we said guts, since our pizzas had olive eyes.

I used the Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer to prepare the apple. Then cut it into wedges for the teeth. I used the peel of the apple to drape in and out of the bowl. Cool huh? I thought I was clever!

I used the Trifle Bowl for the punch bowl. Since it is clear you can see all the "goods".
