Mummies With a Devilish Dipping Sauce

This spooky twist on pigs in a blanket is fun to eat and even easier to make.

Start to finish: 30 minutes

Servings: 20



12-ounce package of crescent roll dough

10 hot dogs

Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

Red food coloring (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut the hot dogs in half to make two shorter pieces (or keep them whole and make 10 bigger mummies).

Unroll crescent roll dough and cut it into strips that are half an inch wide.

Wrap the strips around each hot dog, leaving a portion unwrapped near the end to make the face. Place the dough-covered hot dogs on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.

While the hot dogs are baking, in a bowl combine all the dipping sauce ingredients.

Let the mummies cool for 5 to 10 minutes and then serve with the sauce. Enjoy!

Give the mummies eyes by using cream cheese and black peppercorns.
