If you are looking for a fun food idea for a Halloween meal or a Halloween party, may I suggest you try hotdog mummies? This is a straightforward simple way to make a cute treat that will bring smiles all around.
You will need a pack of hotdogs (wieners), a package of crescent roll dough and some mustard.
Open the package of crescent roll dough and lay out 2 crescent roll dough pieces together to form a rectangle.
Press the dough together in the middle where the dotted cut is. You want one solid piece of dough.
Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into thin lengthwise strips.
Take 1 strip of dough and begin wrapping it around 1 hotdog.
Continue adding strips of dough until you have wrapped dough the entire length of the hotdog. Leave some space between each wrapping as the dough will swell as it bakes. Press the ends of the dough strips together so you have a continuous piece of dough wrapping the hotdog.
I used bunsize hotdogs because that is the kind that were available at my store. Regular size hotdogs are fine. Once you have wrapped all the hotdogs, you are ready to bake them.
Bake according to the time and temperature listed on the crescent roll package. Bake until the dough has lightly browned and hotdogs are heated.
The mummies eyes are made with mustard. I suggest you put a little mustard on a piece of waxed paper or a plate and use a toothpick to put the little dabs of mustard on the mummy.
And that’s all there is to making hotdog mummies!
A word of caution for feeding hotdogs to young children…hotdogs are one of the foods that are easy for kids to choke on. So please cut these into smaller pieces before giving them to your kids. A half of a slice of a hotdog is a good idea. We love kids and don’t want to see anyone hurt. 🙂
Enjoy some yummy mummies this Halloween!
