Mummy carrot dogs are an adorable and fun vegan alternative to mummy hot dogs. They make the perfect festive food for Halloween.
Mummy Carrot Dogs
- 8 carrots
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 roll crescent dough sheet
- yellow mustard for decoration
- Preheat oven to 400º F. Toss carrots in oil and spices. Place in an single layer on a baking sheet. Roast until soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
- Lay crescent dough sheet out on a cutting board. Slice into thin strips. You will only use about half the sheet. Use the remaining sheet for whatever you like. I baked it with thinly sliced apple and cinnamon on top for dessert!
- Wrap each carrot with crescent dough strips to look like a mummy. Leave space for a "face".
- Return to oven and bake until crescent dough is puffed and lightly brown, 10-12 minutes.
- Let cool slightly, then use mustard to create the eyes. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce!
