How cute are these mummy dogs?
I have said it before but I'll remind you, my kids are the worst. The worst eaters that is. My 5 year old literally eats nuggets at least once a day (don't worry I at least give him the healthiest kind I can). And my almost 2 year old is allergic to milk/soy/peanut/tree nut/egg/sesame/chickpea so you can imagine feeding her is more than difficult. So I am delighted to report that these mummy dogs were eaten in their entirety! That's right, point goes to mommy today! I think that makes the score something like 2,351,279 to 1.
I have been seeing these mummy dogs on Pinterest (of course) and on some other blogs but I think the recipe originated from Pillsbury.
The original recipe calls for cheese but I left that out. Also, my kids don't eat ketchup or mustard but I wanted these mummies to have eyes so I cut some tiny eyes out of a strawberry. So if you have picky little ones you can get creative with the eyes.
8 hot dogs
1 tube crescent rolls (8 oz)
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Press seams of dough together and roll into two rectangles. Using a pizza cutter cut long thin strips of the dough.
- Wrap each dog with dough, leaving a small gap at the top for putting eyes later.
- Bake on a cookie sheet 13 minutes.
- Place dots for eyes using ketchup/mustard or anything else you can think of
