Keeping with the spirit of small plates, I decided to show you my new take on the coolest Halloween Appetizer around: The Mummy Dog. Let me introduce you to Mummy Pups!

Everyone has seen mummy dogs before, at least I believe they have. Spooky Halloween eats that are fun to make whether you are 8 or 80!
I made them as a child and I have kept the tradition alive with my boys. My new twist on these much-beloved is that I am shrinking them down to “tapas size.” Meet Mummy Pups!

Little smoky dogs are a staple at most parties. Tiny dogs simmered in a sweet and tangy sauce are one of the first things to go! Right after the sweet and sour meatballs and the majority of the cocktails.
I took these tiny dogs and mummified them, just like their parents!
HOW TO MAKE MINI MUMMY DOGS
ONE: Roll out dough and pinch seams together. Cut into thin strips.
TWO: Wrap the little smokies with the thin strips of dough and place on a baking sheet.
THREE: Bake until golden brown and serve with mustard.
For the full recipe and detailed instructions, please refer to the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
Pillsbury makes the perfect wrappings for these miniature mummies. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls! My oldest son, Braxton, can eat an entire can of these.
Never mind that he is a carbaholic, they are just SO good. Crescent Rolls are flaky, buttery, and light and the flaky layers make the best mummy wraps…
CAN I USE THE CRESCENT SHEETS INSTEAD OF THE ROLLS?
Yes, you can. The dough sheets might be easier to cut than the rolls.
I CAN’T FIND LITTLE SMOKIES, WHAT CAN I USE?
You can cut a full-size hot dog into smaller pieces and wedges to mimic the size of the Smokies.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE CAN I MAKE THESE?
These can be made a day ahead and reheated in the oven at 275F until warm all the way through.
It’s easiest to cut your Crescent rolls with a pizza cutter. For these mini mummies, you will have to have thin strips! The pizza cutter helps you get thin, close strips that will help you mummify your tiny dogs.
Serve them with your favorite condiment! I use a devilishly spicy mustard.
