Hot dogs are about as “comfortable” as comfort food can get. They’re total Americana—always there, always delicious, and you can be served up with so many different toppings.

We’re stepping into the thrilling world of Easy Mummy Hot Dogs: a juicy sausage all tucked into a flaky, golden-brown crescent-roll cocoon. Give it a couple of curious peppercorn eyes and bam – you’ve just created the cutest little mummy around for Halloween!

Tips & Tricks

  • Always opt for good-quality sausages or wieners.
  • Cut the dough into thin, even strips for a more uniform and aesthetic wrapping.
  • Leave a small gap for the eyes. It adds to the mummy effect and prevents the dough from over-wrapping and becoming too thick.
  • Space out the hot dogs on the tray to ensure they bake evenly.
  • Let the hot dogs cool slightly before adding the eyes with mayonnaise and peppercorns otherwise you see the mayo and peppercorns slip off.

FAQs

Could I wrap these dogs up in something other than that crescent roll dough?

Totally! Though crescent roll dough is the classic choice, you can switch it up depending on your vibe or food sensitivities. Pizza dough and gluten-free dough are common substitutes.

What else can I use for the mummy’s peepers?

Tiny black olives, capers, or even sesame seeds can pass for eyes in a pinch. As for the “glue” that sticks those peepers down, you can use ketchup or cream cheese instead of mayo.

Variations

  • Switch up the flavor with spicy sausages instead the usual fare. Just make sure the kids eating them like spicy stuff!
  • Up the nutrition by replacing regular hot dogs with chicken or turkey sausages and using whole-grain crescent dough.
  • I sometimes add a thin layer of green pesto on the dough before wrapping to give a fresh kick to each bite.

How to Prep and Store Mummy Hot Dogs

To prep these Mummy Dogs ahead of your spooky celebration, get your wrap on the hot dogs and pop them in the fridge, uncooked, until you’re good to go.

You can any leftovers chill in an airtight container for a couple of days. When you’re craving those dogs again, just warm them up slowly in the oven to bring back that just-baked flavor and feel!
