OK, we're all concerned about kids' nutrition. But face it: on Halloween, they're going to eat too much candy. So the smart thing is to get some protein in them first. It will fortify them for a long night, and keep that sugar frenzy down to a dull roar.
Here's a fun, easy protein-rich snack to start your Halloween night's festivities…Mummy Fingers!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Start with cocktail wieners. (Healthy tip: You can also use mini turkey dogs. They're better for you and have a lot of protein.) 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.) Spray the dough with oil, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
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!
