Get ready to wrap up the Halloween spirit with our Mummy Bratwurst! These spooky snacks are a deliciously eerie delight to make and devour.
If you love Pigs in a Blanket, you can’t miss this recipe! Mummy Bratwurst is a Halloween-inspired variation of Pigs in a Blanket recipe. In both recipes, bratwursts are wrapped in dough to make a delicious and enjoyable snack.
The Mummy Bratwurst recipe is incredibly simple and requires only two primary ingredients:
- Crescent Roll Dough or Puff Pastry: I prefer to use crescent roll dough, as it can help reduce the greasiness of the dough while still providing a delicious and flaky texture.
- Well-cooked bratwursts: Use cooked bratwurst, like Johnsonville smoked brats. Since these bratwurst are already cooked, they only need to be heated through during the baking process. Raw brats can be thicker and might not cook thoroughly in the same amount of time, potentially leading to an undercooked center.
To give it a Halloween-themed look, you can also do custom decorations, for me, I’m sticking candy eyes on them. For added deliciousness, I prepared ketchup and mustard sources for added flavor variety.
Air Fryer Halloween Mummy Bratwurst
I like to cook Mummy Bratwurst in the air fryer, when cooked in an air fryer, these Mummy Bratwurst become golden brown and crispy on the outside, while the bratwurst inside remains juicy and flavorful. The even cooking provided by the air fryer ensures that each bite is a perfect combination of savory sausage and crispy, doughy goodness.
My favorite air fryer is the Dome air fryer because It is big enough to make easy meals for large groups. It’s a quick and convenient method that results in crispy, evenly cooked Mummy Bratwurst with less mess to clean up.

- Prepare the Mummy Bratwurs. Wrap each bratwurst with dough strips of varying widths, creating a loose mummy-like wrapping. Ensure that the hot dog is still visible after wrapping, as the dough will expand slightly during baking. Leave space for the eyes as well. Prepare a baking sheet to place the wrapped sausages on, and roll them as tightly as possible for better results.
