Mummy Dogs

In the spirit of Halloween I wanted a halloweeny meal so "halloweeny wieners" it was (Ha Ha corny I know..)! Thank you Mrs. Martin for providing the recipes/ideas! Y'all should check out for this and other great inspiring recipes! They have a lot of wonderful holiday food ideas. This is a great Holiday meal that will easily impress family/friends

Mummy Dogs
-1 can (8oz) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (8 count)
-10 large hot dogs
-2 1/2 slices (2.5oz) American cheese slices, quartered
-cooking spray
-mustard and/or ketchup, if desired

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Open the can of crescents and unroll the dough. 

Seperate at perforations creating 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. 

With a knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough. Slice cheese into quarters. (I cut 4 squares but it would turn out better if 4 long rectangles were cut)

Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to resemble "bandages" stretching dough slightly to completely cover the hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dogs show through for the "face". Place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down) on ungreased large cookie sheet; spray dough lightly with cooking spray.

Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot.

Draw features on the "face". Mustard works the best, however I used ketchup because I do not like Mustard.

The "mummy dogs" turned out very well and wonderfully delicious. It was a good holiday meal however it did take a little time to do thanks to the tedious details. From start to finish this took me about 45 minutes (including cook time).
