Looking for a fun breakfast item to serve to the kids on Halloween morning? The boys at my Halloween camp out loved these mummy sausages. I used low-fat turkey sausage to reduce calories and fat grams. Each little mummy with the dough wrapping is in the neighborhood of 77 calories. Look for reduced fat crescent rolls in the can. I purchased the Pillsbury brand. Serve with scramble egg beaters (40 calories).
The How To
Wrap 16 turkey link sausages in strips of crescent roll dough. I only used 7 of the eight crescent rolls. Purchase 18 turkey links if you want to use up all the dough.
Start at one end of the link and wrap the strips like a candy cane stripe. Then wrap another strip in the opposite direction. Place the mummy links on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking oil.
Bake in 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the crescent strips have nicely browned. Remove and serve. Plan on two sausages per person. With egg beaters, you have yourself a breakfast under 200 calories. And, a yummy one at that!
NOTE: You can always dribble the sausages with ketchup once they have baked. Kids like the blood effect (go figure).
