A bit of fun for Halloween! Hot dogs wrapped in stripes of pastry to look like Mummies. A dot of red food dye for the eyes and your done. Not really a recipe – just a fun idea. Thank goodness for Sainsbury’s – a range of milk free hotdogs and three choices of milk free ready rolled pastry make life easier! It’s great that it’s possible to make these for kids with milk allergies – so nice to have something that is exactly the same as everyone else.
We used the shortcrust as it’s Molly’s preference.
Jus Rol Short Crust Pastry or Sainsbury’s Short Crust Pastry is Dairy free
Sainsbury’s have dairy free hotdogs
Halloween Hotdog Mummies
- Jus - Roll Dairy Free Shortcrust Pastry
- Preheat the oven to 170°C, 350°F
- Unroll the pastry and with a sharp knife cut the pastry into thin strips - about 4 mm
- Grab a hotdog and cut 'legs' by cutting the hotdog in half about 1/2 inch from the bottom. Make two 'arms' by cutting a small slice on either side of the hotdog half way up.
- Take the strips of pastry and wrap around starting at the bottom and moving up. It's meant to look like bandages (natch) so overlap them a bit. Tuck the ends around the back when you get to the end of a strip.
- Leave a space for the eyes, and wrap the head bandages.
- Use red food dye pens to create mouths, and black or blue to create the eyes. You can use edible glue and stick sugar eyes on them, and while that looks great I think the taste mix is revolting.
- Bake for 10 minutes until the pastry is golden. The legs will wing out in the heat.
