Processed pastry, manufactured meat…but hey – don’t knock ‘em till you try ‘em. It’s a pity to only reserve this recipe for Halloween; Hot Dog Mummy Babies are a classic.

Unless you or a reputable butcher make them, who really knows what they shove into those casings. Perhaps the kosher brands are the best bet.
Misgivings aside, my oh my, what a treat for Halloween!
