Easy Recipe: Scary-Silly Halloween Mummy Fingers

Easy Recipe: Scary-Silly Halloween Mummy Fingers

I always loved pigs in a blanket as a kid, and these are a really quick way to achieve similar results that are fun for Halloween. For a really spooky presentation you can go all out and squeeze a little mustard or ketchup on one end of the sausages to look like a nail. For a treat other times of year, skip the gory presentation and simply offer ketchup or mustard for dipping on the side.

Ingredients

Serves 4-6 as a Halloween snack

24 miniature chicken apple sausages (pre-cooked kind like Bruce Aidells’ Mini Chicken Apple Sausages)

4 6” flour tortillas

Ketchup and/or mustard

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut a small indentation out of each sausage to look like a nail bed. Stack the tortillas, then place them between two damp paper towels and microwave for 20-30 seconds.  This will soften them. Cut the tortillas into strips that are 5” long by ¾” wide. 

Wrap the end of each “finger” with a tortilla, then skewer each mini sausage with a toothpick horizontally.  Place all 24 of them on a baking sheet. Bake until the tortillas are a little golden and the sausages are warmed through, about 8-10 minutes. 

Squeeze a little ketchup or mustard into each nail bed. Remove the toothpicks and place them on a serving platter.

Really? As if our kids are not going to be eating enough candy and non-nutritious foods on Halloween...pigs in a blanket? I'm disappointed.
