Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup ground oats
  • 2/3 cup parmesan
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • dough to wrap for mummies I will include a recipe for my dough, or you can buy crescent dough like I used for this one.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    Line 2 half sheet pans with parchment. This makes for easy cleanup.
    For the ground oats, I just throw them in a small food processor and pulse until the are in very small pieces, almost like a flour, but not quite there.
    Combine all ingredients except dough in large bowl. Mix well. I used my hands, but you can use whatever you choose.
    Scoop onto sheet pan. I used my medium cookie scoop, I'll add a link on post,it is the 1 1/2 tablespoon scoop.
    Bake for 5-7 minutes. Don't bake them all the way at first, they go back into the oven after wrapping, and you don't want them to dry out.
    Remove from oven and allow to cool for several minutes before wrapping.
    Cut dough into thin strips. Mine were about 1/4 inch by 8 inches.
    Next wrap your meatballs so they look like mummies. Make sure and leave a space for the eyeballs once they are baked.
    Bake until the dough is golden. Mine took about 5 minutes.
    Remove from oven. I used candy eyeballs, but you can also use really small circles of cheese if you prefer. The candy eyes are just so much easier. We removed before eating of course.
    These are awesome just like they are, or you can make sauces to serve them with. A marinara is great, cheese sauce, ketchup, mustard, you get the idea. You have plenty of options if you choose.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
