Cheesy Egg Mummy

Prep Time: 1 minute

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 4 minutes

Yield: Serves 1

A little cheese on a simple fried egg over easy makes a great Halloween Cheesy Egg Mummy. Boo!


  • Bacon fat or olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • Cheese (I used Kerrygold Blarney Castle. Use your favorite!)
  • Candy eyes


  1. Heat a small frying pan or skillet and add bacon fat or olive oil, whichever you will be using.
  2. When hot, crack the egg into the skillet and turn the heat down to low.
  3. While egg is cooking, cut several slices of cheese and then cut the slices into thin strips. The strips can be different lengths.
  4. When egg is halfway done, flip it over using a spatula. When the yolk is cooked nearly to your liking (I like mine firm; others like them more runny), turn the heat off and move the skillet to a cool burner. Let the egg cool for 1-2 minutes. (If you apply cheese to piping hot egg, it will melt and the wrapping won't be distinguishable as strips.)
  5. Apply cheese strips to resemble mummy wrapping, and put 2 candy eyes peeking out.
  6. Enjoy with Halloween gusto!
  7. Serves 1.
