Mummies in a blanket is an easy kid-friendly meal idea! A yummy hot dog wrapped in crescent roll baked until golden brown is perfect for little hands to dunk in their favorite sauces!
How to make Mummies in a Blanket
- Take your eight hot dogs and wrap them in the crescent rolls. I follow the bottom edge of the hot dog and work my way up. This gives you a bit extra at the end to wrap over the top of the hot dog and create the mummy hood.
- Pinch the ends together to prevent the unrolling of dough while baking!
- PRO TIP: Do NOT overlap the crescent roll dough. By doing a single layer only, you have more of an even baking time and don’t get weird soggy dough spots.
- Place the wrapped mummies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. This gives you less to clean after lunch and it prevents any sticking!
- Then we will make a simple egg wash! Scramble the eggs in a small prep bowl. Stir in the garlic powder and the Aldi everything bagel seasoning. Now using a pastry brush generously brush the wash over your mummies!
- Why an egg wash? An egg wash gives your mummies a nice glossy and golden color when baked, crisp outside, and a bit of extra flavor provided by the seasoning you use.
- We love the flavor that the bagel seasoning provides but feel free to omit this if you have picky eaters. Try just a pinch of sea salt for an alternative.
- Bake the mummies in a blanket for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Enjoy!
- Serve them with cute condiment cups full of ketchup, mustard, or even nacho cheese sauce for fun dipping! Pair this simple main dish with fresh vegetables and fruits too. Or a simple side salad. Prep the sides the night before and have a complete meal in less than 15 minutes! Mummies in a blanket can keep you being the cool mom even on your busiest days!
