Mummy Dogs . . . it just isn’t Halloween at our house without this fun recipe. Kids of all ages love this Halloween dinner recipe!

Mummy Dogs - a fun Halloween twist on pigs in a blanket. A perfect Halloween dinner recipe.

Hope you enjoyed the Monster Toes I shared yesterday. Today I’m sharing a non sugary Halloween recipe. This is probably my boys’ favorite Halloween dinner. That may be due to the fact that we hardly ever eat hot dogs around here. Except when we’re camping. Which is not very often, especially now that we have a babe. Because camping with a baby is not my idea of fun. But I digress. Back to Halloween.

Mummy Dogs - a fun Halloween dinner recipe

These mummy dogs are bound to be a hit with kids. Heck, even adults like them. I’m not much of a hot dog fan, but wrap one in some homemade dough and I’m in. The fact that they look like mummies makes them even more fun! My youngest son loves helping me roll the dough into ropes. Now go, have some fun in the kitchen with your kiddos!

Yield: 8 mummy dogs

Halloween Recipe- Mummy Dogs

Halloween Recipe- Mummy Dogs
Homemade pigs in a blanket with a fun Halloween twist.
Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes


  • Dough:
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. SAF instant yeast
  • 1 ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3 cups flour (approximately)
  • 1 pkg hot dogs
  • Mustard or ketchup


Combine sugar, yeast, salt, olive oil, milk, and water in a large mixer bowl. (I used my Bosch.) Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead on low speed until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Let dough rest 5 minutes.

Break off pieces of dough and roll into ropes. Wrap around hot dogs. Make sure you leave a space for the eyes!

Place on lightly greased cookie sheets. (I always have extra dough, so I just form rolls or breadsticks with the leftovers.) Let rise for 30-45 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven at 350° until lightly browned, about 18-20 minutes.

Use a toothpick dipped in ketchup or mustard to make the eyes. Serve warm with extra ketchup and mustard for dipping.

  1. Completely adorable. I’m glad to read a recipe for Halloween that is not sugar/sweets related. I love those too, but they get enough sugar on Halloween so some protein is quite welcome.

    With the bread around them, do the hot dogs cook all the way through at 18-20 mins? Do I need to precook them or boil them at all?

  2. I made these last night with store bought dough (cause I’m not patient enough to make my own dough) and the kids loved how festive they are! Thanks Kara!
