Ingredients for Mummy Hot Dogs
- 10 hot dogs
- 1 roll of crescent dough (we used Pillsbury crescent roll dough but any crescent dough will work)
Yes, that's right. Just 2 simple ingredients, hot dogs and crescent roll dough.
While you don't have to, we are going to make making are hot dog mummies with arms and legs!
This will yield 10-12 mummy dogs, depending on how much dough you use per hot dog.
How to Make the Mummy Dogs
First, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
The first step to making these mummy dogs is prepping your hot dogs.
I cut all of our hot dogs to have 2 legs and 2 arms, like shown below.
Once all of your dogs are cut up and ready, lightly grease a baking sheet and set it aside to place the mummy hot dogs on when they were ready.
Now unroll your crescent dough onto a cutting board. Cut the dough sheet into thin strips.
It was helpful to use a sawing motion with the knife to cut the strips of dough. You could also use a rolling pizza cutter to get more uniform lines.
Once your dough strips are ready, start wrapping your cut up hot dogs. Use one strip at a time and wrap around each hot dog.
Make sure to gently wrap the arms and legs separately.
This will make your hot dog look more human-like with the arms and legs separated from the rest of the hot dog body.
Once each hot dog is turned into a mummy, place it on your greased baking sheet and start wrapping your next hot dog.
Repeat until all of your hot dogs are wrapped as mummies.
Bake your mummy dogs at 350º for 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and cooked through.
Let your mummy hot dogs cool for 15 minutes. We served ours with ketchup and mustard.
These adorable mummy dogs are the perfect quick appetizer to serve at a halloween party, for just for a fun dinner idea the kids will love!

We found that one roll of dough makes ten mummy dogs comfortably. If you used a little less dough per dog, you could probably make the full 12 hot dogs that come in a pack. If you are serving these guys at a party you would just double or triple the ingredients.
