Easy Mummy Hot Dogs

Easy Mummy Hot Dogs

Costumes, candy and crescent mummy dogs—that’s what Halloween is all about! Have your little ghouls and goblins help prep dinner by wrapping the crescent dough strips around the hot dogs to look like bandages. They’ll love seeing these simple-yet-spooky mummies bake up into cheesy, crescent-wrapped Halloween pigs in a blanket to eat before they trick-or-treat

There are a lot of mummy hot dogs in the world, but ours is the best for a couple of big reasons. First, they're stuffed with cheese! We like using strips of American cheese for an ultra creamy and melty bite. But feel free to swap in something sharper like cheddar. (Just make sure the slices are thin and well covered by the crescent dough.) The other reason this recipe wins: Each mummy is brushed with melted butter before baking. Buttery, flaky, and cheesy, you really can't go wrong.

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Ketchup and mustard for decorating


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Slice 1/4-inch strips of puff pastry lengthwise.

Starting at the bottom of each hot dog, wrap a strip or two of puff pastry around, layering so it looks like strips of bandages. Once you get closer to the top, be sure to leave a space for the face. (You may need to cut an extra strip for the head piece.)

Brush mummies with egg wash, then place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Once cool to the touch, dot eyes with mustard or ketchup and have a haunting good time!
