In my opinion, a pig in a blanket will always be the king of cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres! These little mummies are so fun and easy to whip together.
Technique tip: Leave a little extra space towards the top of each mummy so there is room to add the eyes after they're baked.
Swap option: Use full-size hot dogs if you want more of a meal than an appetizer. If you're a ketchup on a hot dog kind of person (no judgement!), you can use it in place of mustard.
- 1 package crescent roll dough
- 1 (14-ounce) bag cocktail wieners
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- yellow mustard
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.2.
Roll out crescent dough onto a lightly floured surface. Use your fingers to seal the triangles into a rectangle. Lightly flour a rolling pin and give a few rolls to flatten out the dough. Use a sharp knife or a pizza cutter to slice dough into 1/4-inch strips.3.
Starting at the top of each cocktail wiener, use 2 to 3 strips of dough to wrap around each cocktail wiener like a bandage.4.
In a small bowl, mix melted butter with garlic powder. Use a pastry brush to lightly brush each mummy.5.
Bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.6.
Use a toothpick to "paint" eyes of yellow mustard onto each mummy and serve.
