The main ingredient is hot dog wieners. You can pick any brand here. Also known as frankfurters, wieners were named after Vienna – the Austrian city. Now, if you are making mummy Halloween hot dogs for vegetarians or anyone that doesn’t eat pork, you can find vegetarian (and even vegan!) alternatives, or use a 100% beef variety for your spooky pigs in a blanket.

Next up is crescent dough. Yes you could make your own dough from scratch, but why would you want to when it’s so quick and easy to use a can of refrigerated crescent dough? Again, any brand you favour is fine.

Biscuit dough would also work in this Halloween party recipe. Just flatten it and then roll it out using your rolling pin, then cut it into strips with a pizza cutter. The result from using biscuit dough will be very similar to using crescent dough. Another option for you is pizza dough.

The candy eyes is what really brings this scary hot dog recipe to life, and there are various ones to choose from. You can get candy eyes online or else make your own, perhaps with a dab of mustard or sour cream and a little piece of black olive.

The eyes are attached to the crescent roll hot dog mummies with a dab of mustard. Not keen on mustard? Feel free to use another condiment like ketchup or mayo if you prefer. The candy eyes are mainly for decoration anyway, unless of course you like eating candy, mustard and hot dogs together!

How to Make Mummy Halloween Hot Dogs

It’s important to make sure the wieners are dry before you begin. If not, the extra moisture will soak into the dough and your spooky pigs in a blanket will be more soggy than spooky. Roll them gently in paper towels to remove the moisture.

Next, roll out the dough, pinching the seams together, then use a knife or pizza cutter to make ¼-inch strips. It doesn’t matter how long they are, so if they break don’t worry about it. Spooky mummies don’t have to be perfectly bandaged.

Wrap the dough strips around the wieners. Include a few criss-crosses but not too many else they won’t bake right. Oh, and remember to leave space in the face area because you’ll be adding the eyes afterwards.

Now you can arrange the scary hot dog mummies on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Give them 8 minutes or a little more at 350 degrees F. You will be able to see when this Halloween party recipe is done because the dough will be crisp and golden.

Finally, add the candy eyes to the face area, sticking them on with mustard, ketchup, BBQ sauce, or your condiment of choice.

What to Serve with this Halloween Dinner

Mummy Halloween Hot Dogs FAQs

Can you make crescent roll hot dog mummies ahead?

You can make them a little ahead of time, since they’re also good at room temperature or even cold. Or you can prepare them up to 2 days in advance.

Simply arrange them on a baking sheet then wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap and bake when ready. If you want to bake them ahead, that’s also fine – they will keep for 3 days, refrigerated in an airtight container.

Can you make scary hot dog mummies in an air fryer?

Definitely! And that makes sense if you have other Halloween dinner snacks in the main oven. They will take somewhere around 7 minutes at 330 degrees F.
