Mummy hot dogs on cutting board

This easy, kid-friendly recipe just might be the perfect pre-trick-or-treating meal that will vanish before your eyes! Serve with veggie sticks and mustard and ketchup for dipping.

  • Course: Dinner, Kid-Friendly
  • Cuisine: Holiday

  • Servings 8
  • Prep Time 10 minutes
  • Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 8 hot dogs – use any type of hot dog your family enjoys
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crescent roll dough
  • Yellow or brown mustard and ketchup for dipping
  • Edible eyes


  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Unroll the crescent roll dough so that it is a horizontal rectangle. If you bought the perforated dough, press on the perforations to seal them together.
  3. Cut the dough into 1/4 inch wide strips from top to bottom and ensure peices are long.
  4. Wrap the pieces of dough around each hot dog creating “bandages” by stretching the dough slightly and letting it overlap and criss-cross. Leave gaps, so it looks like a mummy peeking out from its bandages.
  5. Place each wrapped hot dog on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven.
  7. Place a small dot of ketchup or mustard on the back of your candy eyes and add two to each mummy.
