Mummy Dogs

Bummed you're going to be stuck at home this Halloween? Why not make things fun with Mummy Dogs. Hot dogs are cleverly cut and wrapped in dough, to create these super fun Mummy Dogs, perfect for Halloween at home.





It's almost here. One of the most fun nights of the year. Halloween! We LOVE Halloween. Every year, I make a Halloween themed dinner, for the kids, before they head out trick or treating. In the past I've made a snake shaped sandwich roll, spaghetti spider dogs and decorated pizza like a jack o lantern. When I saw Mummy Dogs floating around the web last year, I knew I wanted to try them. I just love that these mummy dogs have arms and legs. It was the first time I had seen them made this way. Usually it's just a hot dog wrapped in dough. The cuts for arms and legs adds something extra, that really makes the dogs look like mummies. Super fun, super cute and super easy!!!






Dough Wrapped Mummy Dogs

1 pkg of favourite hot dogs (12)
 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 package (2 1/4 tsp) Rapid Rise Yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup very warm water (120 to 130F)
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.


In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, and salt. Stir very warm water and olive oil into dry ingredients. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.


Using a sharp knife, cut arms and legs into the hot dog. Start by cutting near the center in the upper half of the hot dog and cutting outwards for the arms. Cut the hot dog in half near the bottom for legs.


On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to an 1/8 of an inch thickness. Using a pizza cutter, cut long thin strips of dough. Wrap the dough around the hot dogs, making sure to wrap pieces around the arms and legs. 


Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes; or until dough is golden brown. Serve with condiments of choice.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
