Yummy Mummy Cheese Spread

I found this in my Oct/Nov issue of Taste of Home. I wish I was having a Halloween party so I could make him! Maybe one of you will make him and let me know what you think. The only difficult part might be piping the bandages on him.

The creator won $100 in the Taste of Home 'Frightfully Fun Foods' contest.

Here is what she says about her recipe:
"My annual Halloween bash wouldn't be the same without the now famous Mummy Man," says Rebecca Eremich of Barberton, Ohio. "When kids first see Mummy Man, they wonder if they can actually eat him. I assure them they can, and we hack off a foot or an arm with some crackers."


2 port wine cheese logs (12 ounces each)
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 Tbs milk
2 whole peppercorns
1 pimiento strip

Cut cheese logs into pieces for mummy's head, body, arms and legs; arrange on a serving plate.

In small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk.

Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert basket weave tip #47.

Pipe rows across the mummy, creating bandages.

Add peppercorns for eyes and pimiento strip for mouth.

Chill until serving.

Yield: 1 cheese log. Servings: 24
Ready in: 30 minutes

  1. That is so awesome!!! Zoey, go ahead and start it, I will bring the crackers and be over in a few hours!!

  2. Good idea, Sissy!
    Actually this looks like something you should make. I know you like to cook. Are you or the kids having a Halloween party this weekend? You could make it, take pics along the way and post about how to do it and how it turned out. Hey, I know. What about for the teachers??? Now don't you think that's a wonderful idea?

  3. I'm getting some great ideas here. I'm not overally fond of that port wine cheese stuff though, but I guess you need that for the "blood effect"?
    Our youngest grandson is going to be a mummy and our daughter is busily tea dying the cheesecloth strips (15 yards!)

  4. Sue, I think you could use any cheese log you like. I've never seen blood on a mummy anyway, have you? :)
    That's a lot of cheesecloth to te dye!
    I do miss having kids around this time of the year. What fun they all have.

  5. Adorable! I will have to try it!
