How-To: Make Mummy Dogs
A few years ago we started a family Halloween Tradition. We put on a big batch of Southern Living Chili in the Crockpot for the adults, and I make Mummy Dogs for the kids.
My thinking is that this way - there is food available for anyone to eat - when they are hungry - before or after Trick or Treating (or both!).
A few people on twitter asked about my Mummy Dogs - so I'm sharing with everyone.
What you Need:
Refrigerated Crescent Rolls (any brand - I used Trader Joe's this year)
Mustard or Ketchup for eyes
Optional - Cheese
What To Do:
Set your oven to 375 degrees and spray a baking sheet with Non-Sick Spray.
Unroll the Crescent Rolls, but keep them in the rectangle shape - in other words, don't separate the triangles.
Cut each rectangle into 10 strips - lengthwise - I used a pizza cutter.
Wrap 5 strips of Crescent Roll around each hot dog, simulating the wrappings of a mummy - be sure to leave a little space for eyes. If you smush the dough together in places, it adheres better. If you like cheese dogs, you can include a strip or 2 of cheese.
Place your Mummy Dog on your sprayed pan.
Bake approximately 15 minutes.
Let them cool for a minute, and use mustard or ketchup to dot on 2 eyes.
Serve and enjoy!
Do you have any Halloween food traditions?
