Halloween Mummy Hot Dogs

Make Mummy Hot Dogs for Halloween dinner.
Mummy Hot Dogs

I made Mummy Hot Dogs years ago when Laura was little, but resurrected the recipe for my grandson’s birthday party. Kids love them and so do adults. Best of all, you can use any kind of hot dog- turkey, kosher, fat free, vegetarian or all beef.

Just open a package of hot dogs; rinse and pat dry.

Unroll a carton of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls, keeping two triangles together to form a square. Roll dough to eliminate perforations and cut into thin strips.

Wrap the dough strips around the hot dogs, leaving a space for the mummy’s face.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350-375 degree oven until the rolls just begin to turn light golden brown, around 13-17 minutes.

Remove from oven and use a toothpick to create mustard eyes- or ketchup eyes. Easy!

My attempt at the Walking Dead or Mummy Hot Dogs with legs.

I recently saw an updated version of Mummy Hot Dogs that looked more like the Walking Dead. I tried to create them, but my attempt was poor. But, you can try it. Just cut the lower third of the hot dog to create legs. Happy Halloween.
