Halloween Hot Dog Mummies

Halloween Mummy Hot Dogs

I have to admit something. I don’t like Halloween all that much. I didn’t even like it that much as a kid, but all the candy really did seem to help. Today, I still turn to food on this holiday and while I may not be pulling out a pillowcase and hoping to fill it with loot, I do like to scour for special Halloween recipes and create something that I normally wouldn’t. This year, these Halloween hot dog mummies were perfect. And even though we didn’t actually eat them on Halloween, I think another batch might be in order for the big night tomorrow. Not only are they cute and easy to make, they also take just a few minutes to pull together. So even if you have to make last-minute alterations to costumes or finish off that cute clown’s makeup, you’ll still have lots of time to get out the door and hit the neighbourhood.

Ingredients:

  • 8 hot dogs $3.99
  • 1 (8 ounce) can of Pillsbury crescent rolls $1.99
  • Mustard for the eyes $0.10

Total cost $6.08
Cost per serving $1.52

Directions:

1.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.) Unwrap the crescent rolls and join two together. Press the seams together. Repeat this step until you have four rectangles.

3.) Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, slice each rectangle lengthwise into ten thin strips.

4.) Wrap five strips around each hot dog, stretching it lightly and pressing each strip into another as you’re done wrapping. Crisscross the dough as you wrap it, and layer it to really make it look like a mummy.

5.) Using your finger, separate the dough at the top of the hot dog to make room for the eyes.

6.) When all the hot dogs have been wrapped, place them into the oven and bake for 13 – 15 minutes until the dough is cooked through and golden.

7.) Remove the mummies from the oven and place mustard in a small bowl. Dip a toothpick into the mustard and then use it to place two dots in the space you created to make eyes.

8.) Serve and enjoy!
