Mummy Hot Dogs
I’m so excited that Halloween is almost here! It is the one time of year that we can get extra creative with food because even if it doesn’t turn out the way we had intended, i can just say it’s a Halloween recipe. People are much more forgiving! My kids also love playing around with different ideas. Right now they are obsessed with zombies, mummies and monsters thanks to Minecraft. So this Halloween is especially fun! I was excited to find a way to make these Mummy Hot Dogs clean for Halloween.
Mummy hot dogs are so fun and SO easy to make! I’ve seen this done on line with store bought crescent dough, I prefer to make my own dough. I use this Easy Bread Dough recipe.
Mummy Hot Dog Instructable
Use your favorite crescent or bread dough recipe for this. I like to use this easy and versatile bread dough recipe.
Roll the dough into a rectangle that is about 1/8 inch and cut into strips.
I like to use Nitrate free, no filler, grass fed beef hot dogs. I like these Applegate hot dogs from Trader Joe’s. Costco also has delicious grass fed beef hotdogs and they might be more economical if you’re feeding a big crowd.
Wrap one breadstick around the hot dog to make it look like a mummy. I slice green olives and gently press them in to the dough to make eyeballs. You could also use chocolate chips.
Brush the bread dough with a beaten egg white and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until browned. You could also brush the dough with garlic butter (in place of the egg whites) for even more flavor. Serve! Kids and adults love this one!
