It's almost Halloween time, and I LOVE LOVE Halloween!
It's always been one of my favorite holidays. Dressing up in all the fantastic costumes and putting on all the makeup. Sooo many great memories of Halloween. Several favorite costumes come to mind like being a Gypsy, or a Unicorn, or a Tiger like in the play Cats! I even had a friend how once dressed up as a mummy, with tattered dirty sheets made into cloths. She was perfect!
A couple of years ago we went away during Halloween (it's also our anniversary!) and the town of Cambria was having a scarecrow festival. So many creative scarecrows placed strategically around town. Aren't these incredible?
I usually don't make Halloween themed or decorated food because it usually is a time where we go out and party. No time to eat. But what I will do is make some themed or fall "esque" appetizers to have before the partying begins!
In honor of my mummy dressed friend Stephanie I decided to make some Crescent Roll Mummy Dogs. You've seen them all over the internet no doubt. They are quite popular and very easy to make. But what you may not know is that they taste horrifyingly excellent! The crescent dough just provides that needed bun like texture, but even better I would say, that you need with a hot dog.
Plus...who can resist these? I mean, no one I know..and the kids go crazy over them. And, aren't they cute??
So wrap up a hot dog in true mummy fashion this Halloween. They may not fright, but they are sure to delight!
Crescent Roll Mummy Dogs
adapted from Pillsbury.com
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
10 large hot dogs
Cooking sprayMustard or ketchup, for dipping
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Unroll dough; separate at perforations, creating 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal. Cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough.
Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog 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 the "face." On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs.
Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw eyes for the face.
