Tips & Suggestions

Make sure to tightly wrap the crescent roll strips around each hot dog. If you’re using larger hot dogs, you may need to adjust the size of the crescent roll strips accordingly.

For a crispier finish, lightly brush the wrapped mummy dogs with a little melted butter before air frying.

If you prefer not to use crescent roll dough, you can substitute it with puff pastry or pizza dough. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time and temperature accordingly.

Experiment with different types of sausages or hot dogs for variety. Mini hot dogs or cocktail sausages can be wrapped in smaller sections of dough for bite-sized finger food snacks, perfect for parties.

Want to lighten up your mummy dogs? Opt for turkey or chicken hot dogs and use reduced-fat crescent rolls.

Add extra flavor by sprinkling garlic powder, onion powder, or dried herbs like thyme or rosemary on the crescent roll dough before wrapping.

Serve your mummy dogs with a variety of dipping sauces beyond ketchup and mustard. Try barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, or even a spicy sriracha mayo for a twist.

You can prepare the crescent roll-wrapped hot dogs ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until ready to air fry. This makes it easier to manage when hosting a Halloween party.
