  • 1 package sausage I used Beef & Jalapeno with Monterey Cheese
  • 1 package bacon I like to use thick cut
  • 1 package choice of dough I used a can of pre-made refrigerated pizza crust dough
  • yellow mustard


  1. Wrap each sausage in bacon and then grill for 1/2 of the time you normally do. For us, on our grill, this was about 10 minutes. You could also bake these or throw them in the air fryer - just be sure to cook them only 1/2 way because they still need to bake in the oven as well.)

  2. We happened to have a can of pre-made refrigerated pizza crust dough so I popped it open, unrolled it onto a cutting board and used a knife to cut thin strips. I have seen croissant, pastry and breadstick dough used as well too, so just choose the one you like best or use most. 

  3. I then mummified the bacon wrapped sausages by starting at one end and going in as many different directions as I could. When you run out of a strand, just grab another and start wrapping. The messier the better. My only tip for this is to not pull too hard or over stretch the dough - wrap them gently. Try to start and stop the ends on the “back” so that they will stay wrapped during cooking.

  4. Place on lined caking sheet and decide where you want the eyes to be. Simply spread apart the dough in that area a bit. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (or until dough begins to golden brown). DO NOT ROLL OVER! Add mustard eyes and voila! Your bacon wrapped sausage mummies are ready to be devoured.
