Halloween mummy frankfurts recipe

More than a humble hot dog, give frankfurts a spookily cute Halloween makeover using ribbons of puff pastry!

Creating mummified frankfurts is super easy with these few fridge and freezer ingredients. Eyes are made using a slice of cheese and black sesame seeds, but if you don’t have any black sesame seeds, try cutting an olive, a sultana or just dotting eyes with mustard.


8 frankfurt sausages
2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
For eyes – a slice of cheese and black sesame seeds


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  • Slice the sheets of puff pastry into ribbons just over a centimetre wide.

  • Wrap the pastry ribbons around the top and bottom of the uncooked frankfurt, leaving a gap for eyes. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the pastry starts to turn gold – don’t leave in too long or you’ll risk the franks bursting (side note – still delicious!).

  • While the franks are baking, create your eyes. Cut small circles with a paring knife (or use a straw) and place a sesame seed on each round.

  • Once franks are removed from the oven, place the eyes on while still hot so they stick. Serve with tomato sauce to dip!
