Recipe 4: Mummy Hot Dogs

😜Mummy Hot Dogs😜

Happy Halloween! It's time to eat some mummies!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon dry active yeast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 12 all-beef hot dogs
  • 1 egg + 2 Tbsp. water
  • Sriracha


Step 1: Making Dough.

(P.S: Pizza dough would be better because it is stretchy, easy to wrap, and  browns nicely. Feel free to use any store-bought pizza or croissant dough if you don’t want to bother making it.)

Stir together the warm water, sugar, and yeast in a mixing bowl. Let this sit until it started to bubble.

Step 2:

Stir in the salt and oil and then slowly mix in the flour.

(1. For stand mixer: mix this with a dough hook on medium speed until it forms a soft, smooth dough ball.
2. Using hands: stir and knead it for 8-10 minutes until it’s the same texture.)

The dough should be pretty stretchy, but not sticky at all.

Step 3:

Lightly oil the bowl and dough ball, cover it with plastic wrap.

Let the dough rise for about 90 minutes until it doubles in size.

Step 4: Making mummy strips.

Roll it out on a lightly floured surface and then slice it into thin strips.

Step 5: Making mummy bodies.

(P.S: Which kind of hot dogs should I use?
1. Don’t get the super skinny ones. They will be hard to cut for the mummies.
2. Don’t get the huge quarter pound ones because that might be too filling.
Our gourmet steak hot dog would be a great fit as they are neither skinny nor huge. The normal sized hot dogs will do the trick just fine. FREE SHIPPING on all hot dogs order now.)

Cut the dog in half up almost halfway to make the legs of the mummy.

Cut it into thirds across the top of the hot dog for the arms. (being sure not to cut all the way to the top of the dog or you’ll amputate your mummy.)

Step 6: Wrapping

Wrap the mummies starting at the legs and work up. You’ll need 3-4 strips of dough to wrap a full one.

Step 7: Baking

Brush the mummies with some egg wash (1 egg plus some water), which makes sure they get golden brown and a bit crispy.

Bake these guys at 400 degrees F until they are a golden brown color.

🕒Wait about 20-25 minutes...

Step 8: Ready to “ Trick or Treats”!!

Use some hot sauce or ketchup to keep them red eyes.

Serving these Hot Dog Mummies on cheesecloth would bring a fun effect.
