Hot Dog Mummies
You will know that the starter I made for my Halloween dinner party was Bloody Mary Soup. My son doesn’t much care for soup so I made a batch of Baked Mummies so that he too could have a starter, and there would be plenty to go around if anyone else wanted.
They are SO easy to make, and you need just need 3 ingredients: a pack of hot dogs, a pack of puff pastry, and some ketchup for decoration (and for dunking!)
My hot dog mummies start with raw chipolata sausages – but you can use ready-cooked hot dogs of your choice – this would be the [food] safest option for children as they will not be handling raw meat. Of course, hands should still be washed, before and after preparing food.
I buy ready-rolled puff pastry as it’s the quickest and easiest option. Cut the pastry into long strips and wrap around each sausage starting at the top, leaving a little gap for the ‘head’ and then continuing to wrap and wind around to resemble the mummy bandages.
Brush the pastry with a little milk, or beaten egg wash, and bake until the pastry is puffed and golden, and the sausages (if using raw) are cooked through – I generally do about 20 minutes in a hot (200C/400F) oven. Again, if you are using ready-cooked hot dogs, then bake for around 10 minutes – or until pastry is puffed and golden.
Add two blobs of ketchup for eyes, and serve! You could also use yellow mustard – whichever you prefer on your hot dogs!
Another fun way to serve these, is to insert a wooden skewer and have hot dog mummies on a stick! Food on sticks is always awesome!
