Hot dog mummies

The ingredients for 12 hot dogs :

2 puff pastry

12 crackis

1 egg yolk

Recipe :

Unroll the puff pastry and cut them into long strips of medium width. Preheat the oven to 210 ° C (th.7)

Wrap a few strips around a first sausage (like bandages), then repeat the operation with the other sausages to form an army of small mummies .

Brush the mummies with egg yolk dissolved in a little water and put them in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

When they are golden brown, take them out of the oven and serve with a salad.

Jack be little and egg casserole

The ingredients for 4 "Jack Be Little":

4 pumpkins

8 tbsp. whole heavy cream

50 g of Comté


4 eggs

Chewed up


Salt pepper


Recipe :

Wash the pumpkins and cut the top off so that you have a hat. Remove the seeds and scrape the inside a little to remove the threads. Steam the pumpkins (20 min in a steamer). Once cooked, gently hollow out the inside to obtain a little flesh (be careful not to pierce the skin).

For each jack be little , mix inside the flesh of the pumpkin, 1 tsp. of cream and Comté cheese in shavings. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with nutmeg.

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C (th. 6-7).

Crack 1 egg inside each pumpkin and add 1 tsp. of cream on the egg white (as for an egg casserole). Place the pumpkins in a gratin dish with a base of water, then bake, without the caps, for 15 to 20 minutes.

For the dressing , serve each pumpkin with its cap on a salad base (lamb's lettuce for example) with a few nuts, small pieces of Comté and a walnut oil vinaigrette. Everything is eaten, because the skin is very thin. Enjoy your lunch !

Halloween magpie

The ingredients for 6 people:

350 g of pumpkin

4 apples

The juice of 1 lemon

3 egg yolks

2 sachets of vanilla sugar

1 pinch of cinnamon

80 g brown sugar

2 tbsp. coconut powder

1 shortcrust pastry

Butter (optional)

Recipe :

Cut the pumpkin and apples into small cubes. If you want to save time, you can use compote and mix it with the pumpkin as soon as it is cooked! Preheat the oven to 200 ° C (th. 6-7).

In a casserole dish , cook the pumpkin and apples over low heat with the lemon juice (and possibly a little butter), stirring regularly. When everything is well melted, mix to obtain a nice texture.

In a bowl, put the previous mixture and the lightly beaten egg yolks, vanilla sugar , cinnamon , brown sugar , coconut , and mix well. Spread the shortcrust pastry , with baking paper underneath to facilitate demoulding, in a pie plate. Pour the preparation and bake for 20 minutes.

This Halloween Pie can be eaten warm or chilled.
