Dough Wrapped Mummy Dogs

Hot dogs are cleverly cut and wrapped in dough, to create these super fun Mummy Dogs, perfect for Halloween.

Hun... What's for Dinner? Dough Wrapped Mummy Dogs, perfect for Halloween!

It's almost here. One of the most fun nights of the year. Halloween! We LOVE Halloween. Every year Hubby is on the hunt for the latest horrifying and terrifying decorations. No fun and bubbly Halloween here. It's more like scare your pants off time. Sometimes we have to reassure kids that it's safe to come to the door. I think it has a lot to do with his LOVE for horror flicks. I'd be happy with fun and bubbly, but also love the scare your pants off version we do every year.

This year Mr.B would like to dress up as a Creeper. Creepers are found in the Minecraft video game and are basically a green box. Hubby said he'd help with the costume, so I'm interested to see what they come up with, LOL. Queenie wants to be Draculaura from Monster High. Easy enough for me! If I help at school that day, I will be dressing as a fortune teller this year. I have tons of scarves and skirts.... I just need to find some gaudy jewelry. Hubby isn't into dressing up; just decorating.

Every Halloween, I make a Halloween themed dinner, for the kids, before they head out trick or treating. In the past I've made a Snake Bites sandwich roll, spaghetti spider dogs and decorated pizza like a jack o lantern. When I saw these Mummy Dogs, I knew I wanted to try them. I ended up making these for Queenie's Monster High party, and will be making them again on Halloween. I just love that these mummy dogs have arms and legs. It was the first time I had seen them made this way. Usually it's just a hot dog wrapped in dough. The cuts for arms and legs adds something extra, that really makes the dogs look like mummies. Super fun, super cute and super easy!!!

Dough Wrapped Mummy Dogs

1 pkg of favourite hot dogs (12)
 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 package (2 1/4 tsp) Rapid Rise Yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup very warm water (120 to 130F)
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, and salt. Stir very warm water and olive oil into dry ingredients. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.

Using a sharp knife, cut arms and legs into the hot dog. Start by cutting near the center in the upper half of the hot dog and cutting outwards for the arms. Cut the hot dog in half near the bottom for legs.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to an 1/8 of an inch thickness. Using a pizza cutter, cut long thin strips of dough. Wrap the dough around the hot dogs, making sure to wrap pieces around the arms and legs. 

Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes; or until dough is golden brown. Serve with condiments of choice.

This is such a fun idea for Halloween! I bet the kids just loved them! Even though I have teenagers, I have a feeling my boys would get a kick out of them too! If you have a free moment, I would love it if you stopped by Foodie Fridays at A Dish of Daily Life and shared them with us there!
