Terrifying Twice-Baked Mummies

Never fear! You can wrap up these yummy mummies in minutes with baked potatoes and five more ingredients.

Prep Time



Total Time






baking potatoes (8 to 10 oz each)
frozen cooked Italian-style meatballs, about 1-inch each (from 16-oz package)
cup tomato pasta sauce (from 14-oz jar)
slices (3/4 oz each) mozzarella cheese
small pimiento-stuffed olives
dill pickle, cut into twelve 1x1/4-inch pieces
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Wrap each potato in foil. Bake about 1 hour or until fork-tender. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes or until easy to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, cook meatballs and pasta sauce over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes or until meatballs are hot, stirring frequently.
  3. Cut each potato in half lengthwise. With spoon, scoop out pulp from each potato, leaving 1/4-inch shell. Discard pulp or reserve for another use.
  4. Place 2 meatballs and about 2 tablespoons sauce in each potato half; place on ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan. Cut cheese into 1/4-inch wide slices. Arrange cheese slices over meatball filling crossing back and forth to completely cover and resemble “bandages;" tuck ends inside potatoes.
  5. Bake about 2 minutes or just until cheese softens; do not melt. Place 2 olives on end of each potato to resemble eyes; place 2 pickle pieces at opposite end to resemble feet.

To save time, microwave the potatoes instead of baking them. Pierce the potatoes with a fork; microwave on High for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender. Cover them; let stand about 5 minutes before cutting.
You can use pizza sauce instead of the tomato pasta sauce.
