Corned Beef Kamote Mummy

DIFFICULTY: Easy

Makes 6 servings
Preparation and cooking time: 1 hour


Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 white onion, sliced
1 large kamote, peeled & diced
1 medium can corned beef
¼ cup frozen green peas
Salt & pepper to taste
1 teaspoon sugar
2-3 pieces puff pastry sheet
½ cup quickmelt cheese
½ cup mozzarella cheese
2 egg whites

Procedure:

  1. Saute garlic in olive oil. Once translucent, add corned beef and kamote.
  2. When kamote is almost tender, add green peas and white onions.
  3. Season with salt, pepper and sugar.
  4. Cut puff pastry in half. Set aside the other half and work on one sheet first.
  5. Make a slanted slit on the upper and lower left side of the sheet. Brush the left side with egg whites and roll to look like a mummy’s head.
  6. Spoon some kamote corned beef filling on the center of the sheet. Top with quickmelt and mozzarella cheese.
  7. Brush the edges with egg whites. Gather the edges towards the center to secure filling.
  8. Turn it over and cut as many slits as you can, along the whole formed pastry sheet to make it look like a mummy.
  9. Bake at 190C for 35 minutes.
