One hot dog at a time take 3 to 4 strips of the crescent dough to wrap the dog, leaving room for a face. It is okay for the dough to hang off loose (like loose mummy bandages).

Tips, Tricks, & Questions

  • The most common brand of crescent dough is Pillsbury (although sometimes you can find store brand). You can find Pillsbury Crescent Dough in a sheet form that has no perforated lines or Pillsbury Cresent Dough Rolls which is a sheet but has perforated lines that you will have to press closed with your fingers.

Can you make mummy hot dogs ahead of time?

Absolutely! I actually usually do! I simply putting them on a parchment paper lined plate or baking sheet in the fridge. When it is time to cook I carefully transfer the mummy dogs to an ungreased sheet pan to bake.

What about those cool candy eyes I see sometimes, where do I get mummy eyes and can I use them here?

Mummy eyes! So these are actually sprinkles and you can definitely add them to these mummies! You will see the link to buy them on Amazon below. You can stick them on the hot dogs using mustard as glue right after cooking, just remember not to put them on for cooking though because they are sprinkles and will most likely melt.

Can I add cheese and make these cheesy mummy dogs?

Yes! What you will want to do it take a few slices of cheddar cheese and cut them into strips that are about the size of the hot dog. Simply place the strips of cheese against the back of the mummy dog and wrap it under the crescent dough.
