Since the other children are gone at school all day my toddler and I, Mattie have a blast cooking up some fun lunch ideas. All my other Halloween Recipe Ideas I have completed on my own before playing with the kids. I wanted to be sure we had some good photographs to share with you. Since Mattie took charge of this Halloween lunch idea, and did such a good job I wanted to share her fun mummy hotdogs with you. Sure I helped a little bit, but she was definitely in charge of the situation, and she is very excited that I am posting her creation on my blog! Go Mattie!
Mattie and I spent about an hour making these little mummy hotdogs. Mostly because we had to roll out the dough again, and again since she was having so much fun, lol. Either way creating fun lunch ideas like this is a great way to bond with my little girl. We always have fun, and she is getting pretty darn good too! You will see!
Mummy Hotdogs – Fun Halloween Lunch Idea Kids
- 1 package of hot dogs
- 1 can of crescent dinner rolls, or you can use a normal biscuit. That is what we used, and ours turned out great.
- Your favorite cheese (optional, we used slices of string cheese, and the left over string cheese we places inside the extra biscuits we had. It was a yummy cheesy biscuit)
- Preheat your oven to 375 like you normally would for pigs in a blanket
- If you use Crescent Rolls you do not have to flatten the dough. If you decided to use biscuit’s like us you will need to roll the dough out, or flatten with your hand just a little before cutting into strips as shown above. I did all the cutting, lol.
- Next you will slice your cheese into the size pieces you would like to place on your hotdog mummies.
- Grab your hotdog and begin wrapping using the slices of dough that you just cut up. The hotdog should be covered as well as the cheese. I am sure you can tell by looking at the picture below that our cheese is NOT going anywhere. Mattie made sure of that. When wrapping be sure to leave a small opening so you can put two little eyes on your mummy.
- On an greased cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs with the cheese side facing down.
- Bake for about 15 minutes until a golden brown color, or until done.
- Then use mustard or ketchup and place two little dots for eyes.
Didn’t they turn out so good? Mattie did most of the wrapping, it was her project and I am so proud of her. Only 3 years old and already made her very own mummy hotdogs for our fun Halloween lunch, and we had so much fun doing it.
Enjoy your Mummy Hotdogs for a fun Halloween Lunch! I hope you have as much fun as we did!
