These mummy dogs—a spookier version of pigs-in-a-blanket—are not only delicious but easy enough for kids to help make. Although the recipe has only two ingredients, it's important to use the right ones. Reduced fat crescent rolls are not recommended since they end up being too sticky and difficult to wrap around the meat.


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

Steps to Make It

  6. Just before serving, squirt a little mustard on a plate. Dip a toothpick in the mustard and use it to make a mummy face on the hot dogs.
