Mummies that are yummy! These cute treats are super easy to make and always a hit with kids.
- 1 can Pilsbury refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
- 10 large hot dogs
- ½ C Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp dried oregano leaves
Preheat oven to 375° F. On your work surface, roll out the dough and cut into 4 rectangles, then cut these into thin strips. Wrap each hot dog with the dough strips, leaving a small space open near the top of each of the hot dogs to add a face. Place the mummified hot dogs on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. While the hot dogs are baking, mix the Dijon mustard and oregano in a small bowl for dipping. When the hot dogs are baked, add two small dabs of mustard to each to create eyes. Serve with the remaining mustard dip.

- 2 C flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ C milk
- 4 tbsp melted butter
