Mummy Dip

Mummy Dip – Pepperoni pizza dip baked inside puff pastry shaped like a mummy! This is the perfect appetizer for a Halloween party!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I love the spooky decor, scary movies, and fun Halloween-themed recipes! After making a whole bunch of sweet Halloween recipes last week, I really wanted to do a savory one that would be a great appetizer for a party! That’s when I came up with the idea for this mummy dip!

So what exactly is this mummy dip? You can’t tell much from the outside except that it’s shaped like a mummy, bandages and all but on the inside, it is filled with a re-imagining of classic pepperoni pizza dip! I thought it would be fun because it would kind of remind you of what the inside of a mummy would look like with it’s guts, while still being family friendly!

To get everything I needed, I used Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup! It was so easy to do! I put everything I needed in my cart, placed my order, and I chose a time that worked best for me.  Once it was time, I found a spot in the pickup area of the parking lot and then followed the instructions in the app that told me what to do.  I opened up my trunk and had everything put right in there.  It was such a great time saver and I would definitely do it again!

My version of pepperoni pizza dip was going to have a bit of a fun spin to it.  Instead of using marinara sauce, I was going to use RO*TEL® Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies.  I thought this would give the dip a little bit of a kick and it did! RO*TEL® is known for delivering bold, adventurous flavors to any dish and I’m never disappointed in the recipes I use RO*TEL® in!

How to make mummy dip

Step 1 – Make pepperoni pizza dip filling

Combine pepperoni, cheese, and 2 cans of RO*TEL® Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies in a mixing bowl.  Mix until combined.

Step 2 – Cut out mummy

Place a sheet of the puff pastry on a cutting board and cut out the outline for the mummy. The body should be about one foot long and the head should be about 4 inches.  If it doesn’t turn out perfect, that is okay.  My mummy’s head was a little misshapen but once he baked, you couldn’t really tell.

Step 3 – Fill mummy

Fill the inside of the body and the head of the mummy with the dip, leaving at least 1/2 inch around the edge to close up the mummy. You can piled the dip pretty high because it condenses as the cheese melts and will come out much flatter than it went in.

Step 4 – Cover mummy and decorate

Top with the mummy topped with the filling with the other mummy and pinch the sides of the mummy to completely close it up.  Using the leftover pieces of puff pastry from when you cut out the mummy, cut a few strips to place across the mummy as bandages. My pieces were about 1/2 inch thick and I trimmed off the extra from the ends of the bandages after I placed them on the mummy.  One thing I did was I put an egg wash on the body of the mummy and then brushed the bandages with water and dusted them with flour.  This was an attempt to create a difference in colors between the body and the bandages but it didn’t make much of a difference overall.  It’s up to you whether or not you want to try it but keep in mind, it is optional.

Step 5 – Bake

Place in oven and bake.  Top the head with two sliced olives to be the eyes of the mummy and then serve.

    I think the egg wash worked perfect. You can really tell the difference, and it makes the mummy design pop.
