  • 6 hot dogs of choice, beef, turkey, and vegan all work
  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • candy eyes, optional
  • mustard or ketchup for to "glue" the eyes on


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper then set aside while preparing your mummy dogs.Open up the tube of crescent roll and lay flat out. Best on a cutting board. Press the perforations to seal them together.  Now, cut the dough in 1/4 to 1/2 inches strips. Wrap the strips of dough around each hot dog. You can use one or more strips for each hot dog. If you have leftover dough strips, you can make more mummy dogs or save the pieces in an airtight container. Place in freezer for up to 1 month or in the fridge up to 2 days. Use the leftover dough for another recipe. I take a few strips and braid them then baked. Try not to cover each hot dog completely. You want to see openings like a wrapped mummy. Place each wrapped mummy dog on the parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 t0 12 minutes or until the crescent roll strips are golden brown. Using ketchup or mustard, make a dot on the back of each candy eye or eyes and place onto a piece of the baked crescent strip. That’s it! Have fun making these yummy mummy dogs.
