Hot Dog Mummies

{mummify your dogs}
First off...

I have many reasons for not updating since JUNE. But no one really cares, as long as I'm back, right? That's what I thought.

So I've seen these done a thousand times, but only until my cousin Adrian made me a superb cookbook which included this fun recipe, did I actually try it. I first tried it a two Halloweens ago. I made them with my own recipe for pizza though... It was gross. I don't know what I was thinking. So this year, I decided to go with something I knew I liked- Pillsbury croissants. This recipe would be especially fabulous for kids! And of course, particularly amazing during October. (But let's be real- you can eat them anytime you want.)
6 hot dogs (or the like)
1 can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Preheat oven to 350F. Very carefully open and unroll the dough, doing your absolute best not to tear the crescent rolls into serrated segments. The dough will have a serrated break horizontally halfway through the dough, go ahead and separate the dough into two equal portions. This sounds more complicated than it actually is. Lay the two dough pieces flat, and cut each portion into 6, 1 inch strips. Wrap two strips around each hot dog, squishing the meeting ends together, leaving a space at one end of the hot dog for the face. If the dough happens to tear along the serrated lines, just squish it back together.

Bake on a non greased baking sheet for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and the hot dogs are slightly bubbly. Use mustard for the eyes, and wa-la!
