Well, boo. The first time I made these, they were totally mummies. The cheese melted into perfect gauze-like stripes. And then, I decided to make them and photograph them for the blog, and of course when I decided to do that, the cheese melted together a bit and they were kind of more ghosts than mummies.

Whether ghosts or mummies, they’re perfect for Halloween, so I’m going for it.

These Garlic Cheese English Muffin Mummies are super easy, fun to make with (and for) the kiddos, and tasty to boot. Start with plain English muffins, brush on an olive-oil-and-garlic mixture, and cover all over with string cheese strands. (Whole milk string cheese will melt together more like those photographed; part skim will melt into more of a mummy-like state. I now know.)

Tuck in a couple of olive eyes and bake.

Tell you what, I’d be goblin these up if I could tolerate more dairy. More for the kiddos, I guess.
