I found this recipe from "FOODISTA " and as we always do this hot dogs in puff pastry shets, I addopted , being easy for me.
Original recipe( follow) is with bread stick, bought from grocery's refrigerator and is as good as mine.

I buy the puff pastry sheets and one of the sheet I scored in long pieces, as long as is needed it to wrap the hot dog tight, to give an impression of  mummies.

Put some egg wash on them to have a brown baked color and bake them at 400F for about 20 minutes,maybe 25 minutes, to be nice and brown and fluffy.

Make some eyes with a little mustard and HAVE SCARY MUMMIES  FOR HALLOWEEN !

Hot Dog Mummies
Created by Sheri Wetherell   the Founder and Editor-in-Chief at

1 11-ounce can of refrigerator bread sticks
1 12-pack of all beef hot dogs
Yellow mustard


1 For each mummy, separate one bread stick from the roll and slice it in half lengthwise to create two thinner strips.
2 Wrap one strip at a time snugly around the hot dog. Depending on the size of the hot dog, you may not need all of both strips. Leave about 1/2 inch of hot dog exposed for the face area and continue wrapping the top of the hot dog.
3 Bake the mummies on a cookie sheet at 350º for 15 to 18 minutes or until the bread stick wrapping is golden brown.
4 Remove the mummies from the oven and cool them for 5 minutes. Add yellow mustard eyes just before serving.
