Good for your 'mummy'

October 24, 2009|By ARLENE BURNETT / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I make pepperoni bread for my family. It's easy when you use frozen bread dough. I found a lot of recipes for mummy bread online, which inspired this idea.


(Tested by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
3 to 4 ounces sliced pepperoni
4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg white

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into a 13-inch-wide-by-16-inch-long rectangle. Place the pepperoni slices down the middle of the dough, lengthwise. Sprinkle cheese over the pepperoni.

Slice 1/2- to 1-inch strips about 5-1/2 inches long on each side of the dough. This will become the mummy's body. Fold the strips of dough alternately over the filling, tucking the ends of the strips underneath the bread.

Form a head at one end of the dough. Use pieces of pepperoni or small slices of green olives with pimentos for eyes.


Brush with egg white and bake for about 25 minutes or until bread turns light brown.

Serve hot or at room temperature.
