After the success of last month's 'Cocktail of the Month' (check out Steve's Mojito recipe and my tomato bread recipe if you haven't already) we were super excited to get started on planning this month's recipes which we decided would have a Halloween theme. So excited in fact that we decided to drag out our Halloween decorations and invite some of our friends over for a little soiree.

The scene was set and we decided on two cocktails - the first one was a Toffee Apple and the second a Zombie. Head over to Big Stevie Cool's blog to find out the recipes but it's fair to say we now know why they're called Zombie's. Talk about blowing your head off!!
Mummified Sausages Recipe (makes 12)
12 Chipoloata Sausages
1 tube of ready-to-roll Croissant dough
2 tbsp Ketchup
2 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 - Mix the ketchup, mustard and honey together in a bowl
2 - Brush the sausages with the sauce
3 - Unravel your croissant dough and pinch the diagonal line together so there are no gaps. Cut your dough into thin strips (like bandages)
4 - Wrap these strips around your sausages (easier said than done) and place on a lightly greased baking tray. Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees celsius.
5 - Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes and leave to cool for a few minutes before serving. I think they'd be nice dipped in extra ketchup.
I think our 'mummies' were probably over-cooked by 1-2 minutes but overall, they turned out very well and everyone seemed to enjoy them. You can prepare them in advance like I did and pop in the fridge on their baking tray if you wrap the tray in foil/film. Then they are ready to go in the oven when needed. I also think they'll make a fab 'Halloween' breakfast for kids.
