Recipe: Mummy Dogs! | Stamford Moms

Still not sure what to make the kids for dinner before heading out to trick or treat tonight? Mummy dogs are the perfect option!

They’re super simple and the kids will love them! Plus you can use them to make our fun Halloween Dinner Board for the kids! Our friend Carolyn with The Cozy Food Feed, shared her recipe for homemade pigs in blankets (with a spooky twist)!


– 8 Pack of Hot Dogs of your choice
– Puff Pastry Dough (Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are a great option; if gluten free, we love Gee Free Puff Pastry)
– Two tablespoons of melted butter of your choice (can be dairy free).
– Candy Eyeballs (located in the baking aisle at the grocery store)
– mustard or ketchup


1. Unroll the crescent roll/ puff pastry dough, and smooth out any perforations.
2. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice the dough into long, thin slices at 1/2 inch wide.
3. Wrap each hot dog in 3 slices of “mummy” crescent wrap.  Leave space for a face, where the candy eyes will go after baking.
4. Place the mummy dogs on an ungreased cookie sheet. Lightly brush the top with the melted butter to brown the pastry.
5. Bake the mummy dogs on 375 for 12 to 16 minutes (check for pastry to be golden brown; this will vary based on oven power).
6. Take out and cool for 5 minutes.
7. Using mustard or ketchup, dab the back of the candy eyeballs and place gently on the “face” portion of the hot dog.
