An entire day of spooky activities took place today! We did Halloween colored tie dying, made our annual tree ghosts, gravestones and also had dinner with a touch of the season added to it. Crescent mummy hot dogs was on the menu! They are SO easy to make and the kids get a kick out of them.
They are just a silly twist on classic. A themed pigs in blanket if you will. Instead of the pig, we have a mummy wrapped in bandages!
What makes these even better is that you only need two ingredients and they take less than 25 minutes from start to finish. So if you are looking for a throw together dinner that will WOW the kiddos, this is it! Even the least “Pinterest mom” could pull this one off.
All you need are crescent rolls or crescent sheets and hot dogs! If you want to bring them to life a little more you can use candy eyes, pearl sprinkles or just dots of mustard/ketchup to give the peeking look!
The kids can easily help prepare this dinner and have a blast doing it. No two need to be alike and sometimes the bandages are best when thrown on chaotic!
I cook mine in the air fryer because it gives a beautiful golden browned and evenly cooked crescent and cooks your dogs to a plump finish in the snap of a finger.
Crescent Mummy Dogs
You Will Need:
- 1 Can crescent rolls
- 1 Package of hot dogs
- Optional: Candy eyes, sprinkles, ketchup or mustard, butter and garlic for a wash before baking
- Open the can of crescent rolls and gently unroll flat. Cut your bandage strips.
- Pat your hotdogs dry.
- Crisscross wrap the hot dogs leaving spacing between the wraps and enough room for placing eyes at the top of the hot dog.
- Lay the mummy dogs flat and spaced apart in the air fryer basket.
- Spray your air fryer basket and dogs lightly with cooking spray.
- Cook for 6-8 minutes at 330 degrees, F.
You can also do this recipe with bratwurst and sausage! Depending on what your taste buds prefer. Or take the time and jazz them up a bit more with some added details like shaved parmesan to add the affect of white bandage.
Have a spooktacular week!
