We may not have any kids here on the Ranch anymore but we can still have kid fun around any holiday. Just look at these little Mummy Hot Dogs we made this week! We bought the pizza dough and used a pizza cutter to slice the dough into thin strips to make this very easy.
After cutting the tiny strips of pizza dough we debated on the easiest way to wrap these babies. My hubby grabbed a wooden skewer, he poked the skewer through his hot dog to wrap the little strips of dough. He simply threaded the hot dog on the skewer and after getting the dough strip started, slowly turned the skewer and rolled the dough onto the hot dog. Have you noticed that guys being guys,they always have to use some kind of tool! And my hubby is a total guy, even though I had him helping me make Mummy Hot Dogs on a Saturday afternoon.
I used the old-school method, slowly wrapped the tiny strips of dough round and round the hot dogs leaving a place for the face. Either way worked great and with little mustard eyes these Mummy Hot Dogs were very scary indeed! But of course you could use ketchup for those eyes also, whatever pleases your little goblins!
I love the different taste and texture of the pizza dough versus other refrigerated dough and it was better cut into those very narrow strips, it gave more surface to be browned.These Mummy Hot Dogs were fun to make and to eat for us big kids! In fact they were total guy foodies after all, who knew??
