I love cooking Pumpkin Pasties and it’s a great way of using up the pumpkin flesh from out of the jack-o-lanterns.

Our little pumpkin pasties are a delicious, tasty Halloween treat and shaping them like little mummies just adds and extra spooky fun twist to the food.

The pumpkin pasties are great in lunchboxes or served for dinner with a pot of baked beans or sweet potato fries with dip.

Make Pumpkin Pasties Your Way

  • You could stretch this recipe to make more than 6 mummies if you do them smaller or thinner.
  • Don’t fancy pumpkin – try it with mashed potato mixed with cheese instead.
  • Add some extra flavour – stir through some curry paste or pesto.

How to serve Pumpkin Mummies

  • Delicious as part of Halloween tea for the kids. Add a side of fries and pot of baked beans to accompany the pasties.

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 500g pumpkin or squash flesh
  • 25g butter
  • 100g Cheddar cheese - grated
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg beaten
  • sliced black olives - for eyes

Heat the oven to 200C
Boil the pumpkin flesh in salted water until soft - drain, add a knob of butter and mash with a potato masher.
Season with black pepper and more salt (if required) and add the cheese - stir to mix everything together - leave on one side to cool.
Meanwhile - lay out your puff pastry and cut into 6 rectangles and leave a long strip of pastry for cutting into strips (these will be the mummy bandages)
Add a spoonful of pumpkin mixture to the rectangles - smooth into a sausage like shape - wrap the edges of the pastry up around the sides of the pumpkin mixture. Then add strips of pastry bandages around it in a criss cross pattern - add two olive slices for eyes.
Brush with beaten egg - place on a greased baking tray and bake in the oven for around 20 minutes until pastry browns and filling is piping hot throughout.
