These mummy dogs—a spookier version of pigs-in-a-blanket—turn regular hot dogs into a fun, delicious treat that is easy enough for kids to help make. Simply wrapped in crescent rolls to look like mummies, this recipe has only three ingredients. Wrap, bake, and use mustard for the 'eyes' of the mummy dog.

Perfect for an appetizer for a Halloween party, or with french fries for a meal for the kids before trick-or-treating. Dip these mummy dogs in mustard or your preferred condiment...maybe ketchup instead. 


  • 1 (8-ounce) package crescent rolls (or crescent roll dough)
