Mummy Dogs are super easy to make and the kids will love them around Halloween time.

I know this idea has been around for ages but it never gets old.  If you like pigs in a blanket, you’ll love these mummy dogs.

Yes, i’m on a mummy kick with mummy dogs and mummy meatloaf.

Kids love fun foods and this is one that they’ll definitely enjoy.

mummy dogo make these, you need one package of hot dogs.  Any brand and kind will do.  You’ll also need one can of crescent rolls.

Lay the crescent rolls out on a flat surface.  The main perforated seam that breaks the sheet of rolls into two pieces can be separated.  Press the perforated seams together of the 4 individual rolls so you end up with two big sheets of the crescent rolls.

Take a pizza cutter and cut long strips down both sheets of the rolls.  I like to cut them around a 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick.

Take a hot dog and wrap the strips of crescent rolls around it.  I use around 3 strips per hot dog but you can use as many as you want.  I always have leftovers.

You can also add cheese before wrapping the hot dogs.  I would advise using more strips of the crescent rolls to cover it or you’ll have a cheesy mess.

Bake at 375 degrees for 13-15 minutes.

Once they are cooked, I like to add mustard eyes but you can decorate any way you want.

Some fun ideas:  add jalapenos and cheddar cheese before wrapping, use brats instead of hot dogs, serve with a side of chili to dip the mummies in.
