These spooky sausage mummies are quick and easy to make treats for your Halloween party. Ready in under 30 minutes and can be eaten hot or cold. Serve with ketchup, American mustard or sweet chilli sauce for a ‘bloody’ dip.
1.If using fresh pork sausages preheat grill on medium-high. Cook sausages turning occasionally for 6-8 minutes or until nearly golden brown and cooked through. Set aside. Preheat oven to 375° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly roll out the pastry to 0.5cm thick over a floured surface, and cut vertically into long thin strips, about 0.5cm wide. You’ll need 1-2 strips per sausage, so leave the leftover pastry wrapped up in the fridge for another dish.
2.Cut each slice of American cheese into 4 strips.
3.Place a sausage on top of a piece of cheese, then wrap with puff pastry to look like bandages. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
4.Place on prepared baking sheet and brush with melted butter or beaten egg.
5.Bake until pastry is golden and cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
6.Using a toothpick, dot mustard onto each hot dog to create eyes or stick on ready made edible eyes using honey.
