Halloween Food For Kids – Mummy Hot Dogs With Cut & Arms Recipe

These are the first and original Mummy Hot Dogs with cut arms and leg, a fun idea I hope people enjoy. I think the best ways to serve healthy meals to a big family is to buy vegetables in season. Taking advantage of sales is smart too.

With Halloween here this is a great way to make eating vegetables fun. This mummy hot dog with the legs and arms cut separately came to me when I was thinking about how to change the classic hotdog wrapped with dough. I thought my kids would get a kick out of them and they did.

I really wanted to create a fun Halloween inspired meal that would make my whole family smile. Halloween is a fun time of the year for fun Halloween inspired recipes.

I think meals should be healthy and tasty, and why not also be fun?


Cut Arms and Legs Beef Mummy Hot Dogs Recipe


  • 6 Beef Hot Dogs
  • 1 Crescent Roll Dough
  • Olives

Ball Park® Beef mummy dogs

You’ll want to start first by rolling out your crescent roll dough and using a pizza cutter cutting small strips. The next steps are extremely easy you’ll cut each side to create arms and legs and them wrap your crescent roll dough around your dog.

Spray with baking spray and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees!

Cut Legs and Arms Mummy Hot Dogs

I served our mummy dogs with a little fun on the plate! I used broccoli for the grass and just cooked the tops in a little butter. Strain the broccoli to create the grass.  The adorable pumpkins come form this easy to make whipped sweet yams recipe. I finished the eyes with olives and the mouth is a slice of grape.

Our girls couldn’t be more thrilled and this fun and spooky dinner was a real winner for dinner and simple to make! Even better is that it’s a healthy and easy way to make my girls happily eat all off their food.


How are you making meal time fun?

    So cute! I’ve always wanted to make these! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Kristin on October 27, 2013 at 4:39 pm

      What sets these apart is how they are made. Anyone can wrap a hotdog, but its unique to make them look like little guys! We thought it would be a fun twist to the wrapped hotdog.
