Duration for preparation: 10 Min
Duration for cooking: 50 Min
Total time: 1 hour 10 Min
Serves: 10 to 12
- Two tbsp. sunflower oil
- One beaten egg, for coating
- 12 sausages
- 75g mustard
- 320g puff pastry, (ready rolled)
How to Prepare
- Using a large frying pan, heat the oil on low heat and gradually fry the sausages for approximately 8 minutes, turning them frequently, until they turn light brown.
- Place them on a plate and leave them for around 20 minutes till they cool. Afterwards, preheat your oven to 2200 C. Unroll the pastry and leave it on a plastic wrapping. It should be approximately 23 cm wide and 38 cm in length. You can trim them using a knife or a rolling pin. Using a pastry cutter or a knife, cut them to 38 by 1 cm long strips and 23 cm wide.
- Next, wrap the pastry strips around the sausages similar to mummy bandages and leave a space close to one end for the eyes of the mummy to be placed later. Utilize three pieces for every sausage. There might be an odd bit left over, which you will add onto a sausage to use them. Do not be troubled if the strips break or stretch too much upon wrapping, simply patch it up and continue wrapping. At the end of the day, mummies are ideal when looking rustic.
- Put them in a baking tray and position them, eye side up. If you suspect the pastry is getting extra soft, then put it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or more, until it firms up.
- Upon wrapping all of them, using a brush, apply the beaten egg over the pastry. Put them in the oven for around 20 minutes or till the pastry turns golden brown, and the sausages are thoroughly cooked.
- Once they are ready, place them in a plate. With one end of a teaspoon, put two mustard dots on the uncovered sausage part of each one to create the eyes. You can serve them immediately while hot even though some people prefer them cold.
