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

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Unwrap the crescent rolls to make four rectangles. Press dough at perforations to seal.

  3. Using a pizza cutter or a knife, slice dough into thin strips, about 1/8-inch wide.

  4. Wrap the crescent roll dough strips around hot dogs, leaving room near the top for the mummy face. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes until dough is golden brown.

  5. 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.

  6. Serve immediately and enjoy!
