I made these Spooky Meatball Mummies for Halloween as a collaboration with some friends on Instagram. Today we are all posting foods we would bring to a Halloween get together. Honestly, as there are always so many sweets during Halloween, I like to bring a savory appetizer or side. These meatballs are exactly that. You can make the meatballs if you choose, the recipe is below. Or you can save your self the time and buy them. I made mine with 100% beef, but ground turkey, chicken, or even a mix of beef and pork are awesome as well.
In place of bread crumbs, I always like to use ground oats. I don’t use oat flour, I actually like a little more roughage than that. I like to throw them in my small food processor and grind them to a fine grind, but not like flour! You can kind of see in the photo below.
Add all ingredients on ground meat. I like to mix with my hands. You can use a mixer or spoon if you prefer.
Here’s the portion scoop I used. You can, of course, choose the scoop you prefer.
I like to bake on parchment, it simplifies clean up!
Make sure and roll them into fairly smooth balls. It makes it so much easier to wrap them.
Par bake. Remember not to bake all the way, you will bake again after wrapping.
I used a store-bought crescent dough, I needed to cut corners somewhere that day!
Then wrap up your little mummies. Make sure and leave a place for your eyes.
Bake until golden brown, remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Add your eyeballs. You can use small pieces of white cheese, or use the candy eyeballs as I did. I just like the way these candy eyeballs look!
We ate our’s plain, but they are also delicious with ketchup, mustard, marinara, cheese sauce, etc.
You should make sure and make plenty though. I can tell you, these disappear in no time in our house!
