  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls 8 oz
  • 2 ½ slices American cheese quartered
  • 10 hot dogs
  • Cooking spray
  • White and black cookie icing optional
  • Mustard and ketchup for dipping


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  • Unroll the crescent rolls. Press the perforated seams together on each rectangle.
  • Cut each rectangle of dough into 10 long strips of dough. Quarter the cheese slices into 4 long strips of cheese.
  • Put a slice of cheese lengthwise on each hot dog. Use 4 slices of dough to wrap each hot dog up like bandages on a mummy. Leave a small space at the “head” to add eyeballs.
  • Place each mummy onto a baking sheet, cheese side down. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the dough is golden brown.
  • To make the eyes, squirt on a drop of white icing and a drop of black icing.


Can be made without cheese to make them dairy free.
If you don’t have crescent dough, any dough cut into strips will work.
This recipe works best with regular hot dogs, not sausage. To make appetizer sized mummies, cut the hot dogs in half.
This recipe makes 5 dinner servings (2 hot dogs each), or 10-20 appetizers.
