How to Make Mummy Dogs
Preheat your oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Roll Out Dough and Wrap Dogs
Roll out the crescent dough. Press dough together at perforations, creating a solid sheet. Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to slice thin strips for “bandages”, about 1/4 inch wide each. Wrap the strips of dough around the hot dogs and/or mini cocktail sausages, starting at the very top, leaving a small gap for the mummy eyes and taking the pieces of dough all the way to the end of the hot dog.
Take another strip of crescent dough and double wrap in the opposite direction to look like bandages.
Bake your wrapped hot dogs on an ungreased cookie sheet for 9-12 minutes or until the dough is a light golden brown.
Once they’re out of the oven, it’s time for the fun part! Dab a couple dots of mustard to create eyes or attach edible candy eyeballs for a spooky touch. The pigs in a blanket are super cute with one eyeball to create a cyclops. Get creative with expressions!
Serve your crescent mummy dogs warm, on a platter with ketchup and mustard for dipping. They’re sure to be a howling hit and such a fun treat for your Halloween parties and especially on Halloween night.

This will prevent condensation inside the storage container. Place the leftovers in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
