Mummy Dogs Recipe and Photo from Farmers AlmanacMummy Dogs
Recipe adapted from the numerous versions available online.

1 can crescent dinner rolls
2 slices real cheese, cut into 5 equal strips
10 hot dogs
Hot Dog Dips:  Mustard, Catsup, BBQ Sauce etc.

1. Heat oven to 375.

2.  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.

3.  Cut cheese into strips.

4.  Place 1 cheese strip on a hot dog, and wrap with 4 pieces of dough, stretching dough slightly to completely cover the hot dog and look like bandages.  For the mummy face, separate the bandages so the hot dog shows through about 1/2 inch from one end of the hot dog.

5.  On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs cheese side down.

6.  Bake 13-17 minutes, until dough is cooked through and lightly browned.

7.  Use catsup or mustard for dot eyes.
