I Want My Mummy

I try to give my family a little holiday inspired dinner
every Halloween.

This stuffed bread mummy is one of their favorites.
It's really quite easy to make.
First, you'll need two loaves of frozen bread dough,
thawed & risen.
Flatten the dough.Cream 8 ounces of cream cheese with
enough milk to make it easy to spread.

Add fresh chopped or dehydrated onion to the mixture to taste.
With a sharp knife cut the edges of the flattened dough
into 1" strips, leaving 3" down the center of the dough.

Spread the cream cheese mixture down the center of the dough.Add your choice of sliced meat. We like ham &/or turkey.Pull the edges of the dough across the filling,
crisscrossing the strips.
You can bake the two braided loaves
or cut the loaves into sections and
assemble the pieces to look like a mummy.Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Add olives for eyes, and enjoy your spooky treat.

Edited to add:
I've been boo-ed by Tidymom and Mrs. B.


THANKS SO MUCH, LADIES!!!

Blissful Nikki said...

if this isnt the best idea in the world, I dont know what is!!

We usually make "spookettie and eyeballs" but we will be doing "trunk or treat" at our church this year, so we wont be here for dinner :)

Kar said...

I will have to try that next year for my group. It looks great! The possibilities are endless I guess. We have made the Rigaboni recipe from Martha Stewart's site before and the little thought it was funny that we could eat "bones". Anything to make things fun! Thanks for sharing!

I made your "mummy" only just made a braided loaf to take to bridge on Saturday night. It was a hit - made two loaves and they devoured them! Thanks for the idea - pretty simple! PAM
