This low potassium snack makes a nice party treat.


2 x 320g packs ready-rolled puff pastry

340g sausage meat

24 googly cake decorating eyes

3-4 tablespoons chutney

1 egg yolk


  1. Step 1

    Pre-heat the oven to 190Β°C / 170Β°C fan / gas mark 5 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Lay each roll of pastry out and cut in half lengthwise, and then each length into three equal pieces. Cut each piece into thin strips/bandages.

  2. Step 2

    Take the sausage meat and mould into 12 equal sausages. Take one sausage and wrap it randomly in the strips of pastry to look like a mummy, leaving a little space for two eyes to go on once cooked.

  3. Step 3

    Lay the sausage mummy rolls onto the baking sheet, brush with egg yolk and cook for 25 minutes, making sure the pastry is cooked through as it is thicker than a normal sausage roll because of the layers.

  4. Step 4

    Once golden and cooked, remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. Using a little of the chutney, glue the eyes onto the mummies. Serve with the remaining chutney as a dip on the side.
