These Halloween mummy hot dogs only need 2 ingredients and a few minutes of your time to prepare and pull together. Every bite is delicious and good spooky fun. Surprise the kids with this for lunch and you're sure to win over all the boys and ghouls.
Crescent Roll Hot Dog Mummies
If you're looking for a wholesome snack to feed the kids this one is it. You can use it as a teaching point about real Egyptian mummies and go in-depth about history or you can simply serve them up on a plate with some ketchup and call it a day. I choose the latter.
These mummy dogs are so easy to prepare you can even allow the kids to make their own. Have everyone compete in a "best wrapped" mummy competition for a lunch where everyone wins because everyone gets to eat the prize. Thankfully these taste way better than an actual mummy.

Tips for Making Hot Dog Mummy Recipe
This is one of those no-fail recipes you can't go wrong with. The best thing is that even poorly wrapped mummies still look incredible!
A real mummy will have bandages all over the place so don't fret if your mummy looks a little less than pristine when finished.
Depending on how cold your hot dogs are you may find that they need an extra minute or two in the oven to cook as colder hot dogs will slow the cooking on the crescent rolls just a tad and can result in them being a little softer than you may like. For this, I recommend having the hot dogs a little closer to room temp before baking.
FAQ's about hot dog mummies
This is totally up to you as I see many different eyes presented every year. Some people enjoy the candy eyeballs but I like sticking with ketchup or mustard. Mustard will show up much better but ketchup can look nice too. I dip a toothpick in the sauce and then stab it through the hotdog, just a little bit to create the eyes. the sauce covers the holes and the eyes stay in place because there's not too much in one spot.
How to Make Halloween Mmmy Dogs
Open a can of crescent rolls and unroll them. Use a pizza cutter to slice them into strips that are about ½ inch to 1 inch wide. Some pieces will be longer than others and this is okay.
Pick up one hot dog and one long piece of crescent dough and start at one end of the hot dog. Roll it down the dog, leaving a small gap for the eyes. Grab another piece of crescent roll dough if needed.
Use smaller pieces of dough to wrap the hot dog in the opposite direction to create a nicely layered appearance.
Repeat for all of the hot dogs until they have all been wrapped and placed on the baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for 10-12 minute or until golden brown and warmed through.
Use mustard or ketchup for the eyeballs to complete the look.
