Step 2.  Wrap the sausages.

Wrap the strips of dough around the sausages, leaving a few gaps.  Leave a larger gap for the face.  Remember that the dough will rise slightly when you bake it.  Place the mummies on a greased baking tray.

Step 3.  Bake the mummies.

Bake the mummies at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until the dough is baked and the sausages are heated.  Serve the mummies with mustard and ketchup for dipping.

When we think of mummies, we usually think of Egyptian kings and queens.  However, mummies have been discovered all over the world in places such as China, South America, and even Italy and Canada.  Although the Egyptians deliberately mummified their dead, the word "mummy" can also describe bodies which were preserved by natural elements, such as the cold or dry sand.
