Halloween Mummy Hot Dogs

Making Halloween Mummy Dogs is super easy and so much fun for kids to turn traditional pigs in a blanket into creepy hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls.

The hot dogs are not completely covered so they can mimic mummies peering out from their bandages; they are the perfect finger food to fuel your family before or after the night’s activities.

Halloween hot dogs bake until warm and golden brown, then you can bring them to life by adding mummy hot dog eyes and serving them with your favorite dipping sauce.

Perfect for a party appetizer or as a pre-trick-or-treating supper, mummy hot dogs are a scary spin on a yummy type of snack.

Ingredients

  • Hot dogs

  • Ketchup
  • Candy googly eyes (I used https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IF8B3OG)

  • Make Mini Mummies: You can use cocktail wieners or mini sausages (lil’ smokies) instead of the full-size hot dogs to create the cutest mini mummy dogs.

How to Make Mummy Hot Dogs

  1. Cut The Crescent Dough: Roll out the crescent dough and cut it into ¼ inch strips.
  2. Make The Mummies: Wrap the dry hot dogs with the dough strips.
    Pro Tip: The seams of the dough should be on the underside of the hot dog when placed on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake: Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 11-13 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Add Eyes: Cool on the tray for 5 minutes. Put a dab of ketchup on the back of the candy eyes and place 2 onto each hot dog.
  5. Serve: Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauces. Enjoy!

Tip From Our Recipe Developer

  • Add the candy eyes after the mummies have been baked. Otherwise they will melt in the oven.
  • If you do not have edible candy eyes, you can make dots of mustard or ketchup instead.
  • Make sure to stretch the crescent roll dough as you wrap up the mummy dogs so they look like bandages.
  • I like to wrap the mummies so that some of the hot dog is poking out, but you can make them as covered up as you want.

Storage

  • To Store: Store your Mummy Dogs in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
  • To Freeze: You can freeze your Mummy Dogs, wrapped in a freezer-safe bag or container, for up to 3 months.
  • To Reheat: Reheat your Mummy Dogs in the oven until just warmed through. They will get soggy if microwaved.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Make My Mummy Dogs In An air fryer?

Yes, you can make your Mummy Dogs in the air fryer. I recommend preheating it to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and cooking them for 5-6 minutes, or until the hot dogs are hot and the dough is golden brown.

What Is The Best Way To Cut My Dough Into Strips?

It’s easy to slice your dough with a pizza cutter or a sharp knife. I cut mine into ¼ inch strips.

Do I have To Use Traditional Hot Dogs For This Recipe?

You can use any type of “hot dog” that you like for this recipe. Make your mummies with veggie, turkey, sausage, or beef dogs.

Serves — 10
Mummy Dogs make the most adorable finger food for Halloween! Easy to make by wrapping hot dogs in crescent dough, this kid-friendly recipe is so much fun!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 13 mins
Total Time 23 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 10 hot dogs
  • 1 sheet crescent roll dough
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup
  • 20 candy googly eyes
  • your favorite sauce for dipping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper, set aside.
  • Pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels, set aside.
  • Roll out the crescent dough and cut it into ¼ inch strips.
  • Wrap the hot dogs with the strips of the dough, gently stretching it as you wrap. Make sure to leave some room for the eyes. I like to make it so you can see some of the hot dog poking out, but you can make them as covered up as you want. Try to make it so the seams of the dough are on the underside of the hot dog.
  • Place the hot dogs, seam side down onto the sheet trays. Bake for 11-13 minutes until golden brown and the hot dogs are warmed through.
  • Let the mummies cool on the tray for 5 minutes. Put a little dab of the ketchup on the back of a googly eye and place it onto the hot dog so it will stick. Repeat with all the eyes and mummies. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauces.
