Mummy Dogs



I thought these were really cute when I saw them on Picky Palate. I searched online and found that people made these with either refrigerated crescent dough, or bread stick dough. Just cut the dough to make long thin strips that are easy to wrap around the hot dogs. I used crescent dough, and they were really yummy. Sam loved these because he could help me cut the dough and wrap it on the hot dogs. Definitely a fun thing for kids.

1 package of Pillsbury crescent rolls
8 hot dogs

Roll out the dough and press the seams to create 4 rectangles. Cut each rectangle into 8 strips. Use 4 strips per hot dog and wrap the dough around in both directions. Make sure there is a spot that can be the "face". Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or a nice golden brown. Use mustard and ketchup to make little eyes on the mummy faces.

Oh my gosh, these are too cute. I have some hot dogs from Labor Day in the freezer that I want to get rid of and I think this might just be the recipe with which to do so. So cute!!

How did you make the spiderweb in the ketchup?

anon-
Just add ketchup, then do a couple little rings of mustard on top. Then take a toothpick and start from the middle and draw lines going out, they connect together and look like a web!
