I would like to share something that I, in fact, did do that is kinda Halloween-ish.
But before I do, I have to tell you that just yesterday I saw on Dena's Green Acres that she shared some really cute food projects for this week that even if you don't "do" Halloween, you might get a grin like I did. The reason I bring that up is because she had this very project on her site. I told her I was going to post this even though she beat me to it because I enjoyed my name for them so much. Plus, I had already gone through the trouble of taking and downloading the pictures, editing them, and uploading them on Blogger. I can't stand wasted effort.
Anywho, I got the idea from a Pillsbury coupon booklet at the grocery store. Pillsbury calls them "Mummy Dogs," but I like to call them "Halloweenies."
Here's what you need to make them:
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet
2 1/2 slices American cheese, quartered (2.5 oz)
10 large hot dogs
Mustard or ketchup, if desired
(I used the Recipe Creations dough sheet; it was much easier!)
What to do:
1. Heat oven to 375°F.
2. If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough; separate at perforations, creating 4 rectangles. Press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut into 4 rectangles.
3. 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).
4. 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.
5. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot. With mustard, draw features on "face."
I think I forgot to "spray down lightly with cooking spray" so they didn't get as brown as they probably should have been. But my kids loved them!And since we don't do Halloween, they just associated them with Ancient Egypt and mummies from Egyptian history, which is where they get their fix for dead people. :-)
Thanks, Shannon, for hosting another infamous Works for Me Wednesday!
