Kids Party Ideas – Sausage Roll Mummies

kids party ideas belfast

At Makes and Bakes we are full of kids party ideas and we are keen to encourage creativity in our workshops, but we also love to encourage creativity at home! With the Halloween half term coming up we decided to put together a few fun activities to do as a family. Our Sausage Roll Mummies make a spooky snack but they also make for great party food. Made with just a few simple ingredients, these sausage are easy to cook with kids. You can also dress them up anyway you like with your own decorating flare.

I’ve personally served these over the years at a few family Halloween parties and the plate always ends up clean in no time!


  • 2 tsp. sunflower oil
  • 12 sausages or vegetarian sausages
  • 320 g of ready rolled puff pastry (de-thawed)
  • 1 beaten egg, to glaze
  • 75 g American-style mustard / 75g Ketchup or 24 Cloves with 125g of Mozzarella



  1. Heat the sunflower oil in a large frying pan over a low heat and gently fry the sausages or vegetarian sausages for roughly eight minutes. Turn the sausages often until they are lightly browned all over. Then transfer the sausages to a plate and leave them for about twenty minutes until they have cooled down.
  2. When they are ready, preheat your oven to 220°C, (fan 200°C), 425°F, Gas Mark 7.
  3. Unroll your ready rolled pastry but make sure to leave it sitting on its plastic wrapping.
  4. The pastry should be roughly thirty eight centimetres long and twenty three centimetres wide. You can trim the pastry with a knife or roll it to the required size using a rolling pin so that it is roughly the right size.
  5. Using a long knife or a pastry cutter, cut out 38 x 1cm wide strips across the width of your puff pastry so that your strips are about 23cm long.
  6. Now, simply wrap the strips around the cool sausages like mummy bandages. Leave a gap near one end for the mummies’ eyes to go on later. Use three strips per sausage. There will be the odd bit left over, but just add them onto a sausage or chipolata to use them up.
  7. Don’t worry if the pastry strips stretch or break as you wrap, just patch it up and keep wrapping. The mummies look best when they aren’t perfect. Place them down on a baking tray as you go, eye side up. If you find the pastry is getting too soft, then pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes or until firmed up.
  8. Once all wrapped, brush the pastry with the beaten egg. Place them in the oven to cook for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the sausages are fully cooked through. Transfer to a serving platter.
  9. Using the end of a teaspoon, place two dots of mustard or ketchup on the exposed part of each sausage to create eyes. You can also tear small bits off the mozzarella and fix it to the sausage using a clove. Do this twice for each sausage so you can create two eyes. Serve at once with mustard or ketchup for dipping.
