How many of you go to or throw Halloween parties? Growing up, I had a friend that threw huge Halloween parties. Lots of kids, lots of food, games galore, and their whole house was decked out. Each room was barely lit and had a different spooky food item to touch or see: spaghetti for monkey brains, peeled grapes for eye balls, and others. I remember having so much fun and eating so much candy that by the end of the party I had laryngitis and a fever. Maybe a little too much fun? Ha ha. Whether you throw parties, go to parties, or celebrate with your own family, we have a fun and safe Halloween meal for you.
When we see all the fun holiday treats and foods that aren’t safe, we are determined to make them free from. There is no reason to miss out on all the fun. Not only that, but all three of our kids have birthdays this month. That means a lot of parties, and a lot of food! There are endless opportunities for us to make new and fun holiday treats. Everything we make is gluten-free and top 8 allergen free. None of our friends know anything is different which is how it should be. Our main goal is for you to be able to share meals with your loved ones again that are safe and delicious!
One fun treat we wanted to make is mummy dogs. From photos they looked fairly easy to replicate so we went for it. They are super easy! If you have kids, these would be the perfect fun activity to do together. The less perfect they look, the better. Not only are they easy, they come together fast too. They are so easy you could make them for dinner on a weeknight no problem. A great full meal would be these mummy dogs, mandarin oranges peeled with celery out the top for a pumpkin with stem, a bell pepper cut out like a jack o lantern, and our pumpkin donut holes as eye balls. The perfect spooky and delicious meal for a Halloween dinner or party. Head on over and grab a Rustic Scoop™ Pizza Crust Mix so you can make these Mummy Dogs.
Mummy Dog Recipe
1 fully made and risen Rustic Scoop™ Pizza Crust
Approximately 16 Hot dogs (are alternative hot dog)
Optional: edible eye balls or use dots of mustard
Preheat oven to 400 F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Take half of your fully made and risen pizza crust. Roll it out on a silpat mat or parchment paper until it is ¼ inch thick. We like to put the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and then use a rolling pin. Using a pizza cutter, cut ⅜ inch wide strips of pizza dough until it is all cut.
You can use either raw or frozen hot dogs. Gently pull one strip of dough up, haphazardly wrapping it around the hot dog. If the dough breaks, not to worry, just put it back together. Each hot dog will use two strips of ⅜” pizza dough. Wrap each hot dog from top to bottom and lay them on the prepared baking sheet an inch apart. Repeat until all hotdogs are done.
Bake the mummy dogs for approximately 15 minutes or until the hotdogs are cooked all the way through and the pizza dough is golden brown. Once cool, if you are using edible eye balls, gently tuck them between two strips of pizza crust. Enjoy with ketchup for an extra gory meal. ;)
