These Meatball Mummies are a fun, easy, and delicious Halloween finger food idea. They are store-bought meatballs, wrapped in crescent down, and topped with marinara and olives.
Happy Man Monday! You guys know I like Halloween. At least you should. I also love food, which is why these Meatball Mummies were so fun to make. I’d like to know what it is about making Halloween Food that is just so fulfilling? Let me elaborate.
First, let me ask another question. What makes something funny? The unexpected. Think about it. When that neighbor lady falls on her face while taking out the garbage, 90% of you staring out your window laugh first, then think to yourself, oh I hope she’s okay. Why would you laugh at something so awful? Because it’s unexpected, and funny!
Where am I going with this? There’s something about the unexpected aspect of life that makes life interesting, funny, and just plain fun. That’s why I love Halloween Food. I LOVE looking at a grotesque meatloaf severed hand or a zombie eyeball dessert, thinking to myself, man, that is nasty. Then you take a bite out of it and a smile stretches across your face as you realize the unexpected: that nasty piece of work tastes delicious. Suddenly life is better – the unexpected happened – and it made you happy.
There you have it. My theories on life and Halloween. I hope you enjoy these mummy meatballs, and enjoy yourself some Halloween fun!
- 1 tube crescent roll sheet
- 14 oz. frozen meatballs
- 4 oz. can sliced olives drained
- Marinara sauce
- Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- On a clean counter, roll out your crescent sheet. Cut into thin, 1/4 inch strips, lengthwise. Gently wrap the crescent dough around a meatball and place on the baking sheet.
- Spoon a small amount of marinara sauce onto the back of an olive and then stick it on the meatball as an eye. Repeat with another olive and place it next to the previous olive. Keep doing this until all the meatballs are decorated.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until meatballs are hot and crescent dough is lightly browned.
- Serve warm, with marinara sauce.
