These vegan mummy meatballs and vegan mummy dogs are a perfect budget-friendly Halloween appetizer that comes together in a snap.



  • 1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (Original)
  • 1 bag of your favorite vegan meatballs and/or 1 bag of your favorite vegan hot dogs

  • A toothpick
  • An icing bag and a small round cake decorating tip for the eyes


  1. Pop open the container of crescent rolls and unroll the dough on a cutting board.
  2. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into long, thin strips, about ½ inch in diameter.
  3. One by one, wrap your veggie hot dogs and meatballs in the dough using a haphazard zigzag pattern reminiscent of mummies. Be sure to leave a space where the eyes will go!
  4. Bake at 375° for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Dot the eyes and serve!

I’ve been making these for nearly a decade now for Halloween parties because they’re such a simple and fun treat, and they’re always a huge hit and one of the first things to go. You can find crescent rolls at many mainstream grocery stores, and you can use any vegan meatballs and veggie dogs you’d like!
