How To Make mummies in a blanket

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside. Cut each chicken sausage in half lengthwise. Cut each sausage piece in half again, width wise.
  • 2
    Set aside. Remove crescent roll dough from package. It should look like a large square.
  • 3
    rush the square with butter and sprinkle with pepper jack cheese and jalapeño and press down into dough.
  • 4
    Cut dough in ¼ inch wide strips. Starting with one piece of sausage, take half a strip and wrap it around the pointed end of the sausage and pinch at the top to seal.
  • 5
    Take a full strip and wrap the bottom half of the sausage, ensuring you leave a thumb’s width of sausage unwrapped. Place mummy on baking sheet and repeat the process with remaining sausage until mummies are assembled.
  • 6
    Bake mummies for 15 minutes or until golden on the outside. For eyes use a chop stick to poke holes into the sausage, then fill holes with a piece of minced jalapeño.
