Yummy Mummy Dogs

Yummy note: There is finally a cool chill in the air, and a crisp in our step, so that must mean one thing, fall has arrived. I enjoy the fall tremendously, not as much the Halloween ghoulish ways, but just the beauty of this time of year and the harvest of so many wonderful things. My daughter, Alicia, is the same way, she really doesn't get a huge kick out of Halloween, as she still gets pretty scared by it all, but these yummy mummy dogs sure are a treat for her! It doesn't matter what time of year it is, these are still a staple for our meal plan rotation. This is such a great recipe for kids to help out on and get their hands into the kitchen with. With just a bit of prep time and about 15 minutes of baking time, you can have a quick on the go meal in no time that the kids of all ages seem to enjoy.  

1 8 oz can of refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or crescent sheets
1 package of hot dogs (8 or 10 hot dogs)
*optional add-in - sliced cheese (see original recipe)
mustard and ketchup for dipping/decorating

Unwrap and roll out the crescent dough on a cutting board. Cut crescent dough in strips, will need anywhere from 10 thick strips, to 40 thin strips, depending on how thick or how you wrap up your mummy strips. Wrap the dough strips around your hot dogs creating your mummy bandages. Place on a lined cookie sheet or a lightly sprayed pan to avoid sticking. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 13-17 minutes, or until your mummies turn a golden brown. Use ketchup and mustard to decorate your yummy mummy dogs and enjoy!

"ooo, it's hot.. but I want to eat it right away!"
