THM Mummy Dogs

It’s no secret that I love Halloween. This is my favorite time of year! And I’m letting it shine in my food.

Mummy Dogs (THM S)

Serves 4-6

  • 1 package of all-beef uncured hotdogs (I used an 8-ct from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 1/2 c shredded mozzarella cheese (packaged is fine! I used Kirkland brand)
  • 2 Tsp cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 c almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • googly eye candies for decoration (optional, not for consumption ^_~)

Preheat oven to 425.

Begin by removing the dogs from their package and scoring them a few times on two sides. Place them in a medium-sized skillet (I used cast iron), and brown them on all sides over medium heat. NOTE* I like a crispy dog. You can skip this, if you like, as they will go into the oven. I just like the extra layer of flavor a crispy dog provides.

Prepare the dough by placing the mozzarella and cream cheese in a medium-sized microwave safe bowl. Microwave them for about a minute, stir, then let it go for another 30 seconds.

The mixture will  be HOT. Stir it with a spatula or a large wooden spoon. Add the egg, almond flour, and seasonings. Wet your hands slightly, and press the dough out to a 10-in round (don’t worry about it being perfect). Cut mummy “strips” with a pizza cutter (about 1/2 – 3/4 in.). Roll the strip between your fingers (like you would Playdoh, back in the day) and wrap your dog with the mummy strip. NOTE* If you have an 8-ct package, you likely won’t use all the dough. You can roll some up and bake it as garlic knots or make yourself a mini flatbread.

Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.

These were so fun! My kids loved them, and it came together fairly quickly. An easy crowd-pleaser, if I do say so. They also warm up beautifully the next day in lunches.
