Pigs in a Blanket and Mummy Dogs

Thursday, December 28, 2017
I love an easy appetizer and these are such fun little hot dog biscuit rolls!

Halloween fun foods are a favorite that’s almost too fun to eat!

These delicious little mummy-wrapped hotdogs are one of the kids and young-at-heart adult's favorite party foods.

You may also know these referred to as pigs in a blanket, Halloween-style.

Easy spooktacular mummy dogs are baked in crescent dough strips and made to look like a classic  Halloween mummy ghoul.

Using a dollar store kind of squeeze bottle just add a favorite condiment to create the eyes after baking them and enjoy!

Growing up

When I was a little girl, I would help mom make these. She always used pizza dough.

When you're in a hurry for a great appetizer that's fast and easy this is my go-to recipe using refrigerator dough.

The kids love them. I actually can't make enough of them, we never have leftovers! Of course, the kids think this is a treat around Halloween making little mummy dogs but they are a great appetizer all year long anytime!

Perfect For Halloween

During the Halloween party foods, I will use pizza or refrigerator dough, wrap whole hot dogs, and make mummy dogs.

The kids love them and can help you make them.

Just make strips of dough and wrap a whole hot dog!

Just add either two dots of mustard or ketchup for the eyes.

You will have to perfect hot dog biscuit rolls shaped into a mummy!

Pigs in a Blanket and Mummy Dogs

Perfect for hosting a party or making mummies for Halloween. Hotdogs and refrigerator dough come today for ideal appetizers!
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 20 MinTotal time: 30 Min


  • 8 hotdogs
  • 1 package of refrigerated crescent rolls or buttermilk biscuit dough (you can also use pizza dough)
  • mustard or ketchup in a squeeze bottle for eyes
  • Optional: slices of sharp cheddar (this can be placed on the dog for cheese dogs!)
  • Note: for appetizers when hosting a party I garnish the top of the dough with butter, granulated garlic powder, parsley, and black pepper before baking


  1. Roll out the dough, and place a small piece of cheese on the dough if using.
  2. Place the hot dog on the dough roll, pinching the seam shut.
  3. Place the seam down on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  4. For Mummy dogs, cut strips of dough and wrap in a haphazard style to resemble a mummy.
  5. For Baby Showers, cut the hotdogs into small pieces and wrap them like a blanket with a piece of dough.
  6. For hosting a party: Brush the tops with butter, and sprinkle with garlic powder and freshly cracked pepper.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown around 20 minutes.
