This was an AWESOME appetizer for Sunday night football. It even helped get my teenage brother out of his room for the first time today. They’re cute, they’re easy, and they’re gone like that.
To make these delicious wraps, you’ll need:
- Mini hot dogs
- 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon of milk
- Red gel icing
Much like with the Mummy’s Brie, you’ll need to cut the puff pastry into thin strips, but then I cut them in half so they would fit onto the mini hot dogs. I wrapped about twenty, leaving me with extra pastry, but if you’d like to do more, go ahead.
Preheat your oven to 400 F.
Once all the mini hot dogs are wrapped with the pastry, set them on a cookie sheet, and brush them with the egg/milk mixture all over, so that the pastry bakes the same all over.
After they are efficiently brushed, and your oven is ready, set the cookie sheet in the oven for the mini mummys to bake between 12 to 17 minutes, or until golden brown, which is more like 10 to 15 minutes.
As soon as the pastry is golden brown, take the cookie sheet out of the oven, and let the mini hot dogs sit for 5 minutes to let them cool before you put the red gel icing on the mummys for their eyes. As so:
If you put the gel on right after removing the mummys from the oven, it might end up melting. Once they’d all been eyed-on, I set ’em on a plate with some brown mustard and presented them to my family right at halftime. By the time the third quarter resumed, they were all gone
Perhaps my new tagline should be “Quick and Easy Holiday Recipes” since it’s been like a week since I burned anything. If anybody has any ideas, comment below and I’ll give it a thought.
Only eight more days to go until Halloween! I hope this last week of recipes has given you some inspiration for whatever kind of spooky celebration you’re planning to have in the upcoming future. Here’s to one more week. Roll into our website tomorrow for Chocolate Mice.
