Crescent Mummy Dogs

The kids saw this in the paper on Sunday in the coupon section for Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and thought it would be fun to make. They were fun and easy and it is the first time I have made something like this where the kids actually ate the bread portion.

Ingredients (this the recipe cut in half- double for 10 hot dogs!)
1 4 oz can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 1/2 slices American cheese, quartered
5 large hot dogs

1. Heat over to 375

2. Unroll dough and separate at perforations creating 2 rectangles. Press perforations to seal.

3. With knife , cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 20 pieces of dough.

4. Wrap 4 pieces of dough around every hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to look like "bandages." stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dog shows through for "face." On un-greased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs, cheese side down, spray dough lightly with cooking spray.

5. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard or ketchup, draw features on "face." Now with such a cute meal for the kids Life is Good!

This is one of my kiddo's all-time faves. I have to admit to being partial to them, too. ;-)

Fun! Bryan is out of town so I'll be doing this one tonight.

Have you ever made hotdog octopuses? The way you cut the hotdog makes "legs" shrivel up when cooked in the microwave - I also used to make hotdog "dogs" with greenbeans in the bone pile.

Where are you? Is all ok?

Anne said...

No, seriously - is all o.k.? I know you had Halloween Carnival - is that where you've been?

Anne said...

O.K.....I opened my big mouth - but it wasn't there. Get what I'm saying? Where are you Woman! I miss reading you!

Also - mummy dogs were a hit on Halloween with my kids and the two that were here with there family. The crescent rolls made it hard for us adults to resist too. I even saw a friend (on Halloween afternoon) at the store lamenting over which bread product it was the went around the mummy dogs. I was so excited to know without a doubt. We laughed about how sad we were - but how much we would rock in our children's minds come supper time.

My word verification tonight is "dampeni" or
in English "Damn Penny".
