I know, I know. But it involves two things my boys love- bread and hotdogs. So we got in the kitchen and created Hotdog Mummies. It was a fun time of creating our little mummies. There is no right or wrong way. And the finished product was approved by both my boys. To make it easier, you could just wrap the hotdog without creating arms and legs. Either way, your kids will love being in the kitchen with you.
1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
bun-size hot dogs
Mustard or ketchup, if desired
Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Prepare baking sheet by placing parchment paper on pan.
Unroll crescent roll dough, separate at perforations to create 4 rectangles. Press the other perforations to seal.
With a pizza cutter, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 strips, making a total of 40 strips of dough.
Take one hot dog at a time and make a slit at the bottom for the mummy’s legs. Then, make two slits along the sides for the mummy’s arms.
Wrap strips of dough around the individual arms and legs and then around the body of each hotdog, leaving an area about a half an inch long where the mummy’s face is. Place the mummies on your prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the dough is light golden brown and the hot dogs are hot. With mustard or ketchup, draw two eyes on the mummy’s face.
