Expert Tips for Homemade Mummy Dogs

– You can use canned biscuit dough, pretzel dough, or even pizza dough for the mummy hotdogs. As long as the dough can be rolled into strips.

– You can also make eyes by adding a dot of mayo and adding nigella seeds or black sesame seeds.

– Serve these with a dip like honey mustard, ketchup, or salsa.

– Use mini hot dogs for a mini version, but make sure that you roll out the puff pastry thinner. If you use larger hot dogs or frankfurters, make sure to precook and cool them before wrapping them with the puff pastry.

– You can make a keto-version of these mummy hot dogs. Simply combine melted mozzarella (1 ½ cup) with 2/3 cup almond flour. Knead until you form a dough. Roll the ‘dough’ in strips, and use it to wrap around the mummy hot dogs. Make sure to use grain-free hot dogs if you’re making a keto or gluten-free recipe. Precook the sausages, as the dough will bake quickly in the oven. This way, you can ensure the hot dogs are cooked through completely. This keto-friendly dough can be stored in the freezer. Simply allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight, and then allow it to get to room temperature before you use it.


How to store Mummy Hot Dogs

These Homemade Mummy Hot Dogs can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Reheat in the oven until crispy. You can also use the microwave, but it might not be as crispy.
