Mummy Fingers & Helter Seltzer {Cookbook Giveaway!}

Photobucket

Halloween week is here and what better way than to start off the week with a fun and ghoulish recipe?  This year, one of my favorite family websites FamilyFun.com is featuring Halloween ideas by Sandra Lee. These are perfect for the impromptu Halloween get together with friends or a pre-trick-or-treating party for the kids.

We had so much fun making these creepy Mummy Fingers that we decided to make an entire Halloween prep day out of it.  The day was full of pumpkin carving, candy apple making and cob web porch decorating. We also finished it off with a spooktacular Helter Seltzer refreshing drink.  See Sandra Lee’s step- by-step video below for the super easy recipe and instructions.  By the way, Sandra is dressed as Mother Nature in the video.  She’s so fun!

“Celebrate with Sandra Lee” on FamilyFun.com is a brand new web series that gives parents simple, spooky ideas for their family’s Halloween celebration.  Celebrity chef and entertainer Sandra Lee brings her trademark style to Halloween, creating clever kid and adult costumes, pre-trick-or-treat eats, and cool-and-creepy crafts.  The ideas are fun, easy to execute, and can be made with things you already have around the house!

Mummy Fingers
PhotobucketRecipe from FamilyFun.com

Ingredients

1 package cocktail weiners (or mini turkey dogs)
1 package phyllo dough
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Almond slivers
Prepared tomato or pizza sauce
Italian seasoning

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Start with cocktail wieners. First, slice into the top of the dog to make a small opening that will form the cuticle once nails are added. Slide a sliced almond into each opening to form a nail. It’s okay if they look sloppy: Mummies never get good manicures.

Next, wrap the fingers in mummy bandages (also known as phyllo dough that you’ve cut with a pizza roller.) Spray the dough with oil, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Pop the fingers in the oven for 12 minutes while you work on the dipping sauce. To make it, add some Italian seasoning to some pizza or tomato sauce. Heat it up and you’ve got a bloody good dipping sauce!

What are you going to wash down your yummy mummy fingers with?  May we suggest a Helter Seltzer? Watch Sandra Lee’s video below and see how quick and easy these are to prepare.

Otra vez…en español!
La semana de Halloween ya está aquí y qué mejor manera que empezar la semana con una receta divertida y macabra? Este año, uno de mis sitios favoritos  para la familia es FamilyFun.com llena de ideas  para prepararnos para Halloween con la famosa chef, Sandra Lee. Sus ideas son perfectas y únicas para reuniones entre amigos en Halloween y fiestas para los niños antes de ir a pedir dulces.

Nos divertimos mucho haciendo estos  deditos de momia espeluznantes que nos decidimos a dedicarle todo el  día a prepararnos para Halloween. El día estaba lleno de calabazas, hicimos manzanas cubiertas con caramelo y decoramos nuestra casa con telarañas. También,  concluimos nuestro dia con una bebida refrescante llamada Helter Seltzer. Vea el  video  a continuación donde Sandra Lee nos muestra paso a paso esta receta súper fácil de seguir. Por cierto, Sandra está vestida como la madre naturaleza en el video. Ella es tan divertida!

“Celebre con Sandra Lee” en la FamilyFun.com es una serie en el sitio web que ofrece a los padres ideas simples y originales para la celebración de Halloween  con su familia. La famosa chef y animadora Sandra Lee aporta su estilo de marca para Halloween, creando simpáticos  disfraces para  niños y adultos. Las ideas son divertidas, fáciles de crear, y se pueden hacer con cosas que ya tiene en la casa!

Deditos de Momia
Receta cortesía de FamilyFun.com

Ingredientes
1 paquete de salchichas cóctel (o mini salchichas de pavo)
1 paquete de masa de hojaldre
1 / 2 taza de queso parmesano rallado
rebanadas de almedras
salsa de tomate preparada( o de pizza)
Sazonador  Italiano

Precaliente el horno a 375 grados. Comience con rebanando la parte superior de la salchichas de cóctel. Haciendo una pequeña abertura  en forma de cutícula para insertar las “uñas” (las almendras). Inserte una rebanada de almendra en cada abertura. Está bien si se ven chuecas y descuidadas: las momias nunca tienen un buen manicure.

Luego, envuelva  los “dedos” en las “vendas” de momia (también conocida como masa de hojaldre y que haya cortado con un cortador de pizza). Rocíe la masa con aceite y espolvoree con queso parmesano.

Hornee los “dedos” durante 12 minutos mientras prepara la salsa. Para hacerlo, añade un poco de sazonador italiano a la salsa de tomate (o salsa para pizza). Caliéntela en el microondas y tendrá una salsa muy sangrienta lista para los deditos de momia!

Al final, refrésquese con un Helter Seltzer.  Vea el video de Sandra Lee para obtener la receta.

    I love Sandra Lee! But you know, I'm not really that into Halloween. Though recently, I believe my favorite Halloween tradition is eating all of my son's candy. He doesn't really need it. ;) ReplyCancel
