Halloween Mummy Dogs

Fall is a wonderful time of year. With all the leaves changing colors, sweater weather is certainly in our midst. It is so fun to spend time with kids playing in piles of leaves, picking pumpkins for pumpkin carving, and making homemade pies during this season.

One of my absolute favorite things during fall is having pumpkin spice-scented candles. The aromas in my house always make me feel cozy and ready to cuddle up with some hot chocolate.

In October, many of us get to enjoy chili cook-offs, lots of candy, and of course, seeing adorable kids in their Halloween costumes. I cannot believe Halloween is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to this next holiday. There are so many fun things you can do with food to make your Halloween spooky.

ingredient

  • 5 sheets of Puff Pastry
  • 5 each Hot Dogs Feel free to use beef, turkey, or veggie
  • 1 each Egg wash

How to make Halloween Mummy Dogs

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut each pastry sheet into 10 strips.
  3. Wrap 4 or 5 pieces of dough around each sausage.
  4. Brush with egg wash, Bake for 30-35 mins until it’s golden brown.
  5. Remove from the oven, using mayonnaise and black seeds, draw eyes.

Tips

  • Before cutting the pastry into strips, it can help to chill it in the refrigerator for a few minutes. This makes it easier to work with and prevents it from becoming too stuck.
  • If using frozen puff pastry, make sure to thaw it according to the package instructions before beginning the recipe.
  • While it might be tempting to wrap a lot of pastry around each hot dog, try to resist the urge to overstuff them. Too much pastry can make it difficult for the hot dogs to cook evenly and can result in soggy bottoms.
  • Make sure to press the ends of the pastry strips firmly together to seal them around the hot dogs. This helps prevent them from unraveling during baking.

How to Store Leftovers

If you have any leftovers (though they’re sure to disappear quickly!), you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply pop them in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for a few minutes until warmed through.
