Trick or treat! Halloween season is finally upon us, which means you have an excuse to make adorable treats like these Mummy Hot Dogs! We used turkey hot dogs and reduced-fat crescents to keep them on the skinny side, and dotted the eyes with a bit of mustard. You'll be known as the cool mom on the cul-de-sac once the neighbor kids get ahold of these yummy mummies!
RESIDENT MOM RECIPE REVIEW: "The Mummy Hot Dogs were a hit in my house! With my 2-year-old son sitting on the counter next to me, he helped Mama press the crescent roll dough together. Wrapping was a breeze and from start to finish the prep could not have taken more than 15 minutes - and that's with a toddler asking 101 questions about the hot dogs! They were done in about 15 minutes and are best right out of the oven!
My son and I each had one as a mid-morning snack and he ate another for lunch! These are the perfect spooky treat to any Halloween party or for a fun weekend project with the kids!”– Lena, Resident Mom, October 2015
