Mummy Carrots

Cooking Times

Ready in: 45 minutes
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6



  1. Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel the rainbow carrots and toss them in olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and arrange the carrots in a single layer. Cook for 20 minutes.
  3. While the carrots are roasting, place the mozzarella and olives on a cutting board.
    Pull pieces of the mozzarella apart and form into 12 small, ¼-inch balls. Cut olives into 12 smaller circles and center a piece of olive on each mozzarella ball to create ‘eyeballs.’
  4. Roll out and flatten the puff pastry. Cut into thin strips vertically.
  5. Remove the carrots from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Reset oven to 375° Fahrenheit. Once the carrots are cool to the touch, wrap a puff pastry strip around each carrot, keeping an inch-wide gap at the top to place the mummy ‘eyes.’
  6. Arrange the wrapped carrots on the baking sheet, brush them lightly with beaten egg, then place the sheet back in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Remove the carrot mummies from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Place the mozzarella and olive ‘eyes’ in the inch-wide gap between the pastry, and serve carrot mummies with ketchup and mustard. Enjoy!
