Tips & Tricks for a Perfect Mummy Dog

  • Cut the crescent dough as thin as possible.
  • Bring the mummy to life by wrapping the dough in relatively even spacing. A little irregularity is fine – they’ll make even better (and more realistic, if you (or your kids) believe in that) mummies!
  • Grease your baking sheet or use a silicone baking mat.
  • Cool the Mummy Dogs completely before adding the mayonnaise and peppercorn eyes.

FAQs

Can I use different kinds of sausage?

Sure! Any kind will work: bratwurst or even veggie sausages. Just make sure to account for different cooking times.

Do I have to use mayonnaise for the eyes?

In a word, no. Use cream cheese, ketchup, or mustard—or go crazy with mini chocolate chips or raisins (dessert with the meal, what could be better?).

What other twists can I incorporate?

Your kitchen, your mummies! Go all out and add some cheese or peppers. Or you could go sweet instead, and wrap a banana or fold in some chocolate for a dessert-y twist to these Mummy Dogs.

Serving Suggestions

I kind of want to call these the Yummy Mummy Dogs because they’re great to eat—and great served any which way your heart desires. If your Mummies need some plate companions, add some coleslaw or french fries. Serve with some condiments (ketchup *can* look like gory blood) or spicy mustard. Some fresh apple juice will help wash it all down!

Make Ahead and How to Store

Multitasking moms, take note: You can prep these beforehand. Wrap them in the dough and chill in the fridge for a few hours until you’re ready to serve. Then bake them just before the meal. These will store in the fridge for 3-4 days (as long as they’re in an airtight container). To reheat, toss them in the oven at 350°F until they’re warm.
