How-To: Make Mummy Dogs

Mummy Dog All Plated for Halloween

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:
Hot Dogs
Refrigerated Crescent Rolls (any brand - I used Trader Joe's this year)
Non-stick Spray
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.
Mymmy Dogs - Ingredients

Cut each rectangle into 10 strips - lengthwise - I used a pizza cutter.

Mummy Dogs - Cutting the Dough into Strips

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.

Mummy Dogs Ready for the Oven

Bake approximately 15 minutes.

Let them cool for a minute, and use mustard or ketchup to dot on 2 eyes.

Serve and enjoy!
