Crescent Mummy Dogs

"This is another of my family's favorite recipes from the Pillsbury Halloween magazine I bought. They are really cute with little mustard eyes and mouth. I also mix equal parts mustard and ketchup together for dipping. Fun, easy and they taste good too!"

Ready In:
10 Mummies


  • 1 (8 ounce) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls (8 count)
  • 2 12 slices american cheese slices, quartered
  • 10 large hot dogs
  • cooking spray
  • mustard (or both, if desired) or ketchup (or both, if desired)


  • Heat oven to 375°F
  • Unroll dough; separate at perforations creating 4 rectangles; press perforations to seal. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough.
  • Slice cheese slices into quarters (1/2 slice cheese, cut in half).
  • Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog and 1/4 slice of cheese to look like "bandages," stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dog shows through for "face."
  • On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down); spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
  • Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw features on "face.".

    These were a hit at my daughter's Spooky Sleepover Bday Party. My execution was less than stellar, but I'm looking forward to doing them again so that they turn out better. Thanks!

    Perfect for Halloween. (playing catch up on reviews) I made this for our annual fun holiday dinner and the kids thought these were funny and tasted great. They were sooooo cute and I loved setting them on the table. Thank you for posting.

    Found this on the Pillsbury site and DS really wanted to make them so, what the heck, we can play with our food! I apparently wrapped them too much and the little bit that was showing was taken up by the expanding roll and then after taking out of the oven, the hot dog contracted a tad. : ( These are great fun for the kids. I did not use the cheese.

    Cute! I used turkey dogs and ketchup for the face (personal preference). I didn't make my "bandages" quite tight enough, so it spread out a bit while cooking, but that was all me, and I know now for the future to not be afraid to make them a bit tighter! Thanks for a tasty and fun recipe that I will certainly use again!


I grew up in Tucson but moved to Colorado in 1989 and live in a household with my husband, Dad, daughter and 3-year old twin granddaughters. Our 8-year old grandson spends 2 nights a week with us. All of that adds up to often difficult menu ideas to met everyone's tastes. Zaar is very addicting and I love trying the recipes I find here. I like to find recipes of people that I see are still active on Zaar and love it when I hear back from the Chef after I review the recipe. Everytime someone reviews one of my recipes, I like to find one of theirs to make and review as quickly as possible. It's a way for me to find great chefs I don't know yet too! My husband has high blood sugar so we try to watch our carbs, but it is not easy because we love them so much! I was diagnosed with brain tumors in 2005 and so far have had 5 surgeries that have left my eyelid droopy. I hope to have a surgery that will correct that soon!! There is still one tumor they have not removed but my wonderful doctor James Garrity at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN says they will leave it alone until or if it ever causes problems!
