Are you ready for Halloween?  You can be with these Halloween Hot Dog Mummies!  They are so super cute!  And super easy!  We love getting together for Halloween and we always feed the kids before they hit the neighborhood for trick-or-treating.

These fun mummies are always a hit with both the kiddos and the adults. There are many options for making these hot dogs so you can find the best method for you! 

What type of dough do I use?

Halloween Hot Dog Mummies can be made several different ways using different types of dough. Sometimes I use homemade bread dough. I have also purchased pizza dough from our deli, frozen dough from the grocery store and I  have used refrigerator biscuit dough. I like to use the crescent dough.  Any method works and sometimes you have to pick what is the most convenient for you. 

What type of hot dogs do I use?

These hot dogs can be made with beef hot dogs, turkey hot dogs or even vegan hot dogs.  Many times, I will purchase the extra long hot dogs because they make a longer mummy. I’ve also used a smokie or a cooked bratwurst which makes these fun for adults too! Just make certain you select something that is fully cooked.

How do I assemble Halloween Hot Dog Mummies using bread dough?

  1. Roll dough into a 6-8 inch log
  2. Beginning at the top, wrap dough around hot dog 
  3. Secure at the end by connecting end of dough Bread dough wrapped around a hot dog.
  4. Place wrapped dogs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with a non-stick spray Hot dogs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 18-20 minutes

How do I assemble using refrigerated crescent dough?

  1. Open can and unroll crescent dough. Separate one piece and stretch slightly, especially on the wide end.Crescent dough being stretched out.
  2. Start at the top and wrap dough around hot dog. It’s okay if the dough is slightly clunky and doubled up in a few places. Crescent dough wrapped around a meat sausage.
  3. Place wrapped dogs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with a non-stick spray
  4. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 -20 minutes until dough is nicely browned.

How do I use frozen dough?

Allow dough to fully thaw. Divide into small, tangerine sized, balls. Each ball should be about 1.3- 1.5 ounces. You can buy a bag of frozen rolls that are a perfect size. Frozen bread dough shaped into rolls.

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes, you can make these ahead of time. Follow the steps through wrapping the dogs and placing on a baking sheet.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Pull baking sheet out and set at room temperature 30 minutes prior to baking. 

What should I serve with these mummies?

How should I serve the mummies?

Give each mummy two small dots of mustard for the eyes. These Halloween Hot Dog Mummies can be hand held and dipped into ketchup and extra mustard.
