My Girl, Paula: Mini Mummies

Pigs in a Blanket are pretty high on my list of all-time favorite school lunches.  No matter which school I've eaten them in (there have been four), they always seem to taste oh so good.  So much better than regular ol' hot dogs in buns, right?  It goes without saying that I eagerly awaited making this week's My Girl, Paula! recipe:  Mini Mummies.  Their smaller size makes them perfect for your Halloween party spread, and the universal appeal of pigs in a blanket guarantees they'll be a hit!

As much as I liked these pie crust-encrusted mini mummies, I think I still prefer a traditional soft bread covering or even a cresent roll wrap.  I didn't think 10 minutes in a 350°F oven was hot enough/long enough to cook the pie crust, so I put them back in the oven for 10 more minutes.  Try them and see what you think!  Find the recipe here, then visit the My Girl, Paula! blog to check out the other members.
