Crescent Mummy Hot Dogs are a fun and delicious way to celebrate Halloween. Hot dogs wrapped up in crescent rolls served with spiderweb sauce.
I love a good Halloween party and these cute dogs would be perfect to serve along with this spiderweb mason jar cakes!

Our family is all about creating memories and traditions during the holidays, even Halloween! A lot of our traditions revolve around food, surprise. 🙂 One of our Halloween traditions is making these adorable crescent mummy hot dogs before we get dressed up to go trick-or-treating.
Every Halloween we turn on a little “Monster Mash”, gather in the kitchen and make dinner before the costumes come out. These little mummies are always on the menu and are so much fun to eat up before all of the ghouls and goblins start filling the streets. I love that they don’t take long to make and the kids think it is so cool they look like mummies.
How to make crescent mummy hot dogs
- To make these start with Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls. We always have a few cans of Pillsbury™ crescents in our refrigerator. They can be used for so many different things from ham and cheese roll-ups to apple pie bites. You can’t beat the quality and taste of Pillsbury™.
- Next you will need hot dogs and some cheese cut into strips. Remove the crescent rolls from the can. Unroll the dough and separate into four rectangles.
- With your fingers, press the seams together making a flat rectangle. Cut the rectangle long ways into approximately 10 strips. I highly recommend using a pizza cutter to slice the crescent roll dough but a knife will also work.
- Take a strip of cheese and place it on the hot dog. Wrap 4 pieces of crescent dough around each hot dog and cheese strip. These become the bandages of the mummy. Leave a little space at the top for the eyes. I love getting the kids involved in cooking and baking with me so I have them wrap the hot dogs with the strips of Pillsbury™ Crescent Rolls.
- Place each prepared hot dog cheese side down on a baking sheet. Lightly spray the top with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 13-17 minutes or until dough becomes light golden brown. Use mustard or ketchup to make eyes on the “face”.
How to serve crescent mummy hot dogs
I serve my mummies with spider web ketchup and mustard and sometimes will insert a long skewer into the hot dog for mummies on a stick. These hot dogs are perfect for a party and if you are serving a crowd, try cutting the hot dogs in half to make “mini mummies”.
Mummy Hot Dog variations
- Sprinkle garlic powder on top of mummies before baking.
- Sprinkle poppy seeds on top before baking.
- Use candy eyes on the mummy face.
