Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 6


  • 2 cans Crescent Rolls
  • 1 pound Ground Beef browned
  • 8 slices Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 can Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sweet Basil
  • 6 large Jalapeno Peppers halved and seeded
  • 6 Ripe Olives pitted


  1. Preheat oven to 375⁰.
  2. In a medium-sized skillet, over medium heat, brown the Ground Beef, stirring frequently. Remove browned meat from skillet and place in a paper towel lined bowl to drain.
  3. In a small, non-stick sauce pan, combine the Tomato Sauce, Garlic Powder, Oregano, and Sweet Basil. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  4. **You may want to wear rubber gloves for this step, to prevent your hands from feeling like they are on fire after you prepare the Jalapenos!** Wash Jalapeno Peppers, cut in half lengthwise, remove and discard seeds, and place on paper towels to dry.
  5. Cut 6 Mozzarella Cheese slices in half, diagonally (to form triangles).
  6. Using a thimble (or small, round bottle lid, or cake decorating tip--the threaded side), cut 24 round pieces of cheese from the Mozzarella slices. Set aside.
  7. Slice 24 slices from the Ripe Olives, set aside.
  8. Unroll 4 Crescent Rolls, place on floured wax paper, and cut into thin strips.
  9. Unroll Crescent Rolls, and place one on a small piece of wax paper. Top with a half slice of Mozzarella Cheese, one-half of a Jalapeno Pepper, a tablespoon of the Tomato Sauce mixture, a tablespoon of browned Ground Beef.
  10. Wrap a few strips of Crescent Roll around the Crescent/Jalapeno concoction. Place on a large ungreased baking sheet.
  11. Repeat from step 9 until 6 mummies are complete.
  12. Bake for 13 to 17 minutes, or until mummy crust is lightly browned.
  13. While the first half dozen mummies are baking, assemble the second half dozen mummies.
  14. Allow to cool, remove from baking sheet, and place on serving dish.
  15. Place two round pieces of cheese on each mummy and top each cheese piece with a slice of ripe olive to simulate eyes. (If you plan to re-heat your mummies, add the cheese and olive slices after re-heating.)
