Mummy Dogs!

So, I think we've all seen these 'mummy dogs' floating around the web at some point in time, perhaps a bit more frequently now that Halloween is fast approaching. Well, I'm game. For some reason, my kid is obsessed with mummies. I still chalk it up to one of her favorite books, Where's My Mummy, but who knows. I've still got it on the agenda to work on a fitting lunch based on that book, but I digress. We found some lovely nitrate free turkey dogs that actually taste good... yippee! I wrapped them tightly in strips of crescent roll dough, and popped them in the oven based on the roll's instructions. When they were browned and crispy, we took them out and served them with the regular hot dog fixin's.

I actually liked these since I don't really like hot dogs buns in general. Having my dog all nestled snug in warm in the crispy, buttering wrappings was much better. However, after spending all that time wrapping them and talking to my daughter about what we were having for dinner, the first thing that she did when she sat down was prompting remove all said wrappings and discard them to the side of her plate. I'm sure it was unintentional, but I swear I saw a bit of disgust as she plucked every single molecule of dough from her dog. Sigh.. You win some, you lose some. Either way, I thought they turned out awfully cute and yummy.

  1. I've made them for my kids and this is what had my "I never eat a hot dog not hot" actually request one for her lunch the next day... and she LOVED it... so some kids do like the wrapping on the dog... lol.

  2. These are so cute, what are the eyes made from?
