Fall Challenge #6- Mummy Dogs

As part of my Fall Cooking Challenge, I have a Halloween recipe for your Oct 31. To be honest, I was a bit worried about how this recipe would turn out. It is more geared towards kids, but we both really liked it! It is pretty simple to make, too!

There are several websites with variations of this, but this is the one I used: source [just minus the cheese]

Mummy Dogs
-1 pkg of hot dogs [we used turkey dogs]
-1 pkg Crescents dinner rolls [we used the generic reduced fat and no issues]

-Heat oven 375 F
-For crescent rolls, unroll the dough and separate it at perforations to create 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal the dough
-With knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into 10 pieces, for a total of 40 pieces
-Dry hot dogs with a paper towel.
-Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog to look like bandages, stretching if needed. You can separate the bandages at 1/2 inch from one end of hot dog to make a face
-Place wrapped hot dogs on ungreased (or foil lined) cookie sheet and bake for 13-17 minutes, until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot.

I definitely recommend drying the hot dogs so the dough sticks to it. Both Matt & I enjoyed making and eating them, so I even if you don't have kids, try it!

One mummy!

These are a fun, quick, and easy recipe. Add some ketchup for dipping (or mustard), fruit/veggies, and you got yourself a nice Halloween meal!
