Being gluten-free is not essential, I have also tested these with unbleached all-purpose flour and it works just as splendidly! Simply swap the gluten-free and almond flour for 1 cup all-purpose and Bob’s your uncle!

Gluten-Free Mummy Dogs

Makes 12 to 14 hot dogs
Print Recipe


  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 tablespoons raw organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon ghee or softened unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend, plus more for rolling
  • 1/4 cup packed super fine almond flour
  • 12 to 14 nitrate-free hot dogs (I use Applegate brand)


  • In a medium to large mixing bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Add the sugar, salt, egg, ghee, gluten-free flour, and almond flour to the bowl. Combine with a spoon or use the dough hook attachment on a stand or hand mixer.  
  • Knead for 2 to 5 minutes and transfer the dough to your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Place the lid on your pot and select the yogurt function. Adjust the time to 1 1/2 hours and let it rise. If you do not have an Instant Pot, cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours. 
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Flour a smooth surface and place the dough ball on top. Flour the top of the ball and gently smooth out the dough until it forms a 10 to 12 inch circle, using more flour as needed. Cut the dough into 8 slices, like a pizza, and cut each slice into 4 more additional pieces. Pinch and press the dough into a line that can be wrapped around each dog.
  • With a paper or kitchen towel dry each hot dog. Wrap it carefully with the dough and place it on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. 
  • Remove the mummy dogs from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before dotting on mustard eyes and serving. Yum!


If you are nut-free you can use 1 cup of gluten-free flour and omit the almond flour. If you are not gluten-free, use 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour instead of the gluten-free flour and almond flour.
Lightly brush with butter or oil and place in the basket of your AirFryer. AirFry at 320°F for 4 to 6 minutes, flip and continue baking for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
