Serve hot dogs and crescent rolls for dinner? Not that special and no one wants to eat. Serve those same foods with a Halloween twist? In the eyes of your kids, you are now awesome and they’re asking for seconds!
Case in point, Halloween Crescent Roll #MummyDogs!
These spooky little guys are super simple to make and require only 3 ingredients!
They’re perfect for parties or even just a quick and easy dinner on Halloween night!
To make a few of your own mummies, you’ll need:
- Original Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- Hot Dogs
- American cheese (completely optional)
To get started, preheat your oven to 375° and crack open the crescent rolls.
You’ll need to roll them out, press the seams of two triangles together to make a single rectangle and cut them into strips. The easiest (and fastest) way to do this, by far, is to grab your pizza cutter and slice.
Once you’ve got your crescent rolls cut, grab a slice of cheese and cut it in half. Wrap the cheese around a hot dog and then, let the mummifying begin!
Take your strips of crescent roll dough and start wrapping them around your hot dog. Continue until you have your entire hot dog wrapped, leaving a few spaces here and there to make it look more like a mummy. Don’t forget to leave a space for your mummy’s eyes!
As you get them wrapped, place them all on a greased cookie sheet and bake them for about 15 minutes or until they are golden brown and the hot dogs are nice and hot. You can even add a few dots of ketchup or mustard for eyes once they come out of the oven.
Serve them up with ketchup and mustard for dipping, or if you’re making these for a party and prefer to have choices, you can always make another dipping sauce for the adults as well.
Include a little honey mustard or even make your own! Just mix up 2/3 cup of Dijon mustard along with 4-5 tablespoons of honey and you’re all set!
In no time at all you’ll be the coolest mom ever and, for once, you won’t have to fight to get your kids to eat their dinner 🙂
