When it comes to Halloween food it’s all about simple here – like these veggie Halloween mummy sausages. These spooky little mummies are simply vegetarian sausages wrapped in shortcrust pastry strips before cooking. My kids love these for dinner or in their lunchbox the next day.
Do you celebrate Halloween? My kids are really into it but I am not into all the sugar that comes at this time of year. Making fun savoury Halloween food is a good way to overcome this and keep everyone happy.
If you’ve so much as glanced at Pinterest recently (check out my healthy Halloween board for fun ideas) you’re bound to have seen some take on mummy sausages. They’re ridiculously easy to make – especially if you use ready made pastry and my kids absolutely love them.
These sausage mummies would be a great Halloween activity to make with the kids – perhaps before a Halloween party or for an easy tea time treat. Older kids can help to make the pastry strips and even little ones can help to wrap the strips around the mummy – or the sausage.
These veggie mummy sausages are a fun Halloween treat that is neither too unhealthy or too scary.
How to make Halloween mummy sausages
These are very simple to make – making them perfect low-stress party food. All you need to do is cut thin strips into shortcrust pastry and wrap them around your sausage. Once cooked you can add little eyes with a small dollop of ketchup or mustard. If you preferred you could add edible googly eyes instead.
You could use puff pastry to make these Halloween sausage rolls but I prefer the effect of shortcrust as more of the sausage is visible. You could easily make this into a vegan Halloween recipe by using vegan sausages. Most shop bought shortcrust pastry is vegan but check the packet if you’re not sure.
