Recipe Variations

  • Change the Eyes: Instead of ketchup or mustard, try using small pieces of olives or pickles to create the eyes for a different look and a tiny bit of extra flavor.
    You can also use edible eyes available at baking stores for a more cartoonish, fun effect.
  • Different Wraps: If you want to mix it up from the usual pastry, try using crescent roll dough or even strips of tortilla for a different texture and taste.
    Each option provides a unique twist to the mummy’s wrappings.

  • 24 medium-sized hot dogs (about 1.32 pounds)
  • 1 package of ready-rolled puff pastry
  • Ketchup or mustard (for the eyes)


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) while you get the mummies ready.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a pizza cutter to slice the puff pastry into thin strips, about 1/5 inch wide—thinner if you can manage.
  • Carefully wrap two to three strips around each hot dog, leaving a small gap at one end for the mummy’s “face.” Arrange the strips at different angles and spaces to mimic ragged mummy wrappings.
  • Place the wrapped hot dogs on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.
  • Let the hot dogs cool slightly, then add two dots of ketchup or mustard for eyes using a toothpick for precision.
  • Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
