Halloween this year is going to be a lot different of course, due to the pandemic. Of course, this year there is going to be a change as we are not able to have parties. Unless you live in an area which is not as heavily restricted as us. Trick or Treating is something else which is going to be missed this years as well. Most people want to celebrate Halloween in some way I know this is something which Jess wants to do. As well as doing some baking with her while she is off for half term. We have decided that we are going to do a couple of spooky meals for Halloween.
Hotdogs are the perfect base ingredient to make a spooky Halloween meal and so simple to work with. Usually they do not take too long which is perfect should you have children like mine who always want food ASAP. I had already planned on making some Halloween themed food when Ye Olde Oak asked me if I would like to create a Halloween recipe. Simple food which your kids are going to love and it may make up for not been able to do some of the Halloween traditions which we would normally do.
The idea is one which you could make as a lunch time snack or serve with something else alongside as a evening meal. It is a Mummy Hot Dog this is something I have seen all over Pinterest and they look pretty cool. For some reason I thought they were going to be a lot harder to make than they are. They are simple and only require 3 ingredient.
Ye Olde Oak Hot Dogs
1. You need to take your puff pastry out of the fridge 30 minutes before you are going to make the mummy’s. It makes it a lot easier to work with compare to if you get it out of the fridge just before.
2. Cut the puff pastry into small slices width way. This is going to be your bandages for the mummy you do not want them to be too thick.
3. Wrap the puff pastry around the Ye Olde Oak Hotdog. I dried the hot dog off before doing this as I found it easier to work with when we did this.
4. You then need to put them in the oven on 200 fan for 20 minutes. Until they are golden brown I couldn’t believe how amazing they came out. You might need to let them cool for a couple of minutes before the next step.
5. Then take the mustard and make couple of dots which are the eyes of the mummy. If you have room you could always make a mouth as well if you do not run out of room sadly I did every time I have made these.
You can serves these on there own as a lunch or with a sandwich. We did them as an evening meal and served them with some loaded wedges. This is something which Jess loved even Troy enjoyed the mummy. I think I may make some of these during half term and Halloween. You could make them throughout the year though.
How are you celebrating Halloween this year?
