Halloween Dinner: Spooky Mummy Dogs

30 Oct

Mummy DogsI redeemed myself! After posting my last horribly embarrassing miniature caramel apple fail, I managed to prepare an adorable fall themed dish without it looking like melting intestines.

This time I veered away from the lie machine known as Pinterest and settled for a corporate site. Pillsbury’s website to be exact. It’s full of cute and creepy crescent roll creations, plus each recipe has been meticulously measured in a test kitchen to ensure happy customers and future Pillsbury purchases, unlike Pinterest.

My latest Halloween inspired creations were mummy dogs! I made them while babysitting my elementary school-aged neighbors and they turned out to be a fun and easy dinner project. Plus, you only need five ingredients!

Pillsbury Mummy Dogs recipe

Ingredients: (Serves 6)

  • 1 package of hot dogs
  • 1 container of Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 6 slices of American cheese
  • cooking spray
  • mustard (for eyes and dipping)

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 375

Step 2: Unroll dough and separate to make four square sheets. With a butter knife, cut dough lengthwise into 10 thin strips.

Step 4: Wrap 4-5 strips of dough around the hot dogs like bandages. Make sure to keep an open space at the top for eyes.
