I made this meal for my grandma when I was a kid and it's super simple and a great idea for kids to make to start to learn how to cook!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place hot dogs in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Drain.

  • Roll crescent dough onto a work surface; tear into 8 pieces. Roll 1 piece dough around each hot dog, creating the look of a mummy. Place dots of mustard on the top of each for the eyes, nose, and mouth. Arrange hot dogs on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crescent dough is golden brown and flaky, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can change the mustard features to ketchup or something else or you could add hair. It's your preference!

Great and easy recipe but we do this for a once in a while treat as it's not too healthy. However it can be even faster --since hot dogs are already cooked in the package no need to boil them -- just poke a couple of holes in each one with a fork before you wrap them up in the dough. Skip the step of boiling them -- they get plenty hot in the oven. Read More

Three and one-half stars would be more like it. Looked like a fun and tasty recipe so tried it today using Aidell's chicken and apple sausages as those were on hand and hot dogs were not. They come four to a package and are pretty large. Sauteed just a few minutes in a skillet first then halved each one to fit the crescent roll. Something wasn't quite right with the crescent rolls as they didn't cut easily into triangles as they always have previously plus it was not so easy to wrap as suggested. Baked as directed but found the dough not quite done enough so next time will bake according to package directions which is 375 for 9-12 mins. Thank you for an interesting fun Halloween treat.

Hot Dog Mummies Haiku: "Gourmet food it's not. But serve to younger diners? They'll scarf them down!" This recipe is as basic as it gets and my 7-year old and her slumber party pals enjoyed helping put them together and eating them in a most kid-friendly fashion w/ buttered green beans. Would be a cute fast supper b4 trick-or-treating. Read More

Super cute! We found they just needed a couple of extra minutes in the oven to brown up but delish! Very funny to put them in kids lunches on Halloween! Read More

These were a fun time to make with my kiddo. I always appreciate recipes that he can be amused and excited about. My mom got a laugh out of them as well. By the last hot dog we were making zombies and vampires as well! Read More
