How cute are these?? <3 Meatball Mummies are a fun twist on the same ol' mummy hot dogs that we've been making for years! These little guys make a cute Halloween Dinner idea for kids but they're fun any time of year!

Meatball Mummies are a fun twist on the hot dog mummies we’ve all seen so many times!

Not just for Halloween, these are fun to eat any time of the year!  These little guys are not only adorable.. they’re super easy to make!  I used lean frozen meatballs but ANY type of meatball can be used for these!

A strand of spaghetti inserted into the meatballs stabilizes them enough so you can wrap them and then is easily removed before baking!  I added my own little Edible Eyeballs to these to make them extra adorable!  To ‘stick’ the eyeballs, you can use a little dab of mayo or ketchup. Depending on the size, some were a little bit “wedged” between the wrappings.  You can also just dot the eyes with mayo & mustard/ketchup if you don’t want to make eyeballs!

3.  Thread 3 meatballs onto a strand of spaghetti (this just holds them in place). Begin wrapping dough around the meatballs stretching and criss-crossing until the meatballs are completely covered. Be sure to leave a little space open for the eyes.
