Air Fryer Mummy Dogs take the classic pigs in a blanket and give them a Halloween-inspired makeover. Made in the air fryer, too, for even faster, crispy mini mummy hot dogs!
If you have any upcoming Halloween parties, these Halloween Air Fryer Mummy Dogs will definitely be a hit. They’re simple to prepare, with just a couple ingredients and an air fryer needed. And since they’re basically pigs in a blanket, they’re typically pretty kid-friendly (grown up-friendly, too!).
Why This Recipe is SO Good:
- Only 2 ingredients
- Fun and festive for Halloween
- Fast in the air fryer
- Bite-sized for parties
- The nostalgia!
- They’re delicious!
For a full ingredient list with quantities, please check out the recipe card at the bottom of this post!
- Crescent Rolls: You can get a tube of crescent rolls, or they actually even make a sheet of crescent dough, if you can find that available!
- Mini Hot Dogs: You can use regular-sized hot dogs, too, but we’re making mini air fryer mummy dogs for this Halloween version. They may be called “Lil’ Smokies” at the store.
For complete instructions, please check out the recipe card at the bottom of this post!
- Pinch the seams of the crescent rolls together, then cut into strips.
- Wrap crescent strips around mini hot dogs like a mummy.
- Air fry, then serve and enjoy.
- Don’t overlap or overcrowd the air fryer. The crescents will slightly expand, and you want to allow air flow so they can bake appropriately and become evenly browned.
- You may need multiple batches. I have an 8 quart air fryer and find I need to do two rounds to air fry all the mummy dogs. If your air fryer is smaller, you may even need three rounds of air frying.
- Mummy Eyeballs: Honestly, I usually just leave the eyeballs off these mini guys! You can use a toothpick to add dots of mustard or ketchup for the eyes, or even cut tiny squares of black olives. But I find when feeding a crowd, not everyone likes mustard, ketchup, black olives, etc., so we usually just leave it off. When making for my kids, sometimes we’ll place candy eyeballs on top (see lunchbox picture), just to have some fun!
Storage, Freezing, & Reheating
Prepared air fryer mummy dogs can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
To reheat, you can microwave for 15-30 seconds, adding 10 second intervals for more time. (You’ll likely need more time if reheating many at once.)
You can also reheat in the air fryer at 325 degrees for 1-2 minutes.
They can also be frozen up to 2 months, then placed in the air fryer at 325 for 4-6 minutes.
