Crescent Mummy Dogs

Crescent Mummy Dogs
  • Yield: 10 servings
  • Prep: 30 minutes
  • Cook: 20 minutes


8 ounces refrigerated crescent dinner rolls, such as Pillsbury
2 1/2 slices American cheese, quartered
10 large hot dogs
cooking spray
mustard or ketchup, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 375F
  2. Unroll dough; separate at perforations, creating 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal.
  3. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough.
  4. Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each 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 ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down); spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
  5. Bake 13-17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw features on face.
