Mummy Dogs

Ingredients (purchase from your local unionized grocery store):

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
10 hot dogs – choose your favorite union-made hot dog (Ball Park, Butterball, Hebrew National, Hormel, Oscar Meyer)
Cooking spray
French’s mustard


1.    Preheat oven to 375° F
2.    Unroll crescent dough and separate at punctures to create 4 rectangles. Then, press the perforations in the center of the rectangles to seal. Do not separate all of the pieces as that will give you triangular shaped dough pieces.
3.    Cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces using a knife or kitchen scissors. There should be a total of 40 pieces of dough once this has been completed.
4.    Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog to look like bandages – the dough will need to be stretched to cover the hot dog. About ½ inch from one end of the hot dog, separate the dough so that there is space for the mummy face and eyes.
5.    Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and place wrapped hot dogs on top. Place cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 13 – 17 minutes, or until the dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. 
6.    Remove from oven and make two dots for eyes, using mustard, on the mummy face.
