Just like our Meatball Mummies , these Hotdog Mummies are perfect for a quick and easy Halloween night dinner that the kids are sure to love. Trick-or-Treat night is always a hectic night to get the kids fed before the little ghosts, goblins, princesses, and pirates throw on their costumes and head out the door in search of the best tricks and treats in the neighborhood!
- 1 roll crescent roll sheet
- 6-8 Hotdogs, any kind your kids love
- 12 edible eyeballs (cheese & olive pieces)*
- 1 Tbsp. melted butter (optional)
- Ketchup or mustard for dipping
- Preheat oven to temp temperature as directed on crescent sheet package
- Cut crescent dough into thin strips, approx. 1/4" wide
- Begin wrapping dough around the hotdog stretching and crisscrossing until the hotdogs are covered and resemble mummies. Don't forget to leave a space open at the top for eyes!
- Place on a parchment paper lined pan.
- Bake 10-12 minutes or until browned. Remove from oven, brush with melted butter and add on edible eyeballs.
*For Edible Eyeballs:
- Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese (a brick or slices for desired thickness of eyes)
- Black olives, (could also use zucchini or eggplant)
- 2 different size straws
- If using brick cheese, cut slices to desired thickness
- If using black olives, cut off the sides so the pieces lay flat. If using zucchini or eggplant, cut off a piece of skin the thickness of your cheese.
- Use the larger straw to poke the eyes out of the cheese slices. Then use the smaller straw to poke the middle out.
- Use that same small straw to make the dark part of the eye by pushing the straw through the desired vegetable. It should fit right in the middle of the cheese.
- Place the eyes on the Hotdog Mummies.
- Enjoy your Hotdog Mummies with a side of your favorite ketchup and mustard.
- Instead of brushing with plain melted butter, try brushing them with garlic butter...to ward off the vampires!!!
- To save even more time, use candy eyes instead of making the eyes. Even better, use a dot of mustard for the eyes to make them look extra spooky.
- Sometimes Crescent sheets are hard to find. If you are using Crescent rolls, just pinch the seams together to form a sheet for easier cutting.
- These can also be made in the air fryer!
