Feeling festive at lunchtime? Having a Halloween party? Or just want a fun lunch idea for the kids this weekend? Wrap up your ordinary hot dog for a scary treat–yummy hot dog mummies. Courtesy of Spoonful.
1 11-ounce can of refrigerator breadsticks
1 12-pack of hot dogs
How to make it
For each mummy, separate one breadstick from the roll and use kitchen shears or a knife to slice it in half lengthwise to create two thinner strips.
Wrap one strip at a time snugly around the hot dog. Depending on the size of the hot dog, you may not need all of both strips. Leave about 1/2 inch of hot dog exposed for the face area and continue wrapping the top of the hot dog.
Bake the mummies on a cookie sheet at 350º for 15 to 18 minutes or until the breadstick wrapping is golden brown.
Remove the mummies from the oven and cool them for 5 minutes. Add yellow mustard eyes just before serving. Makes 12 mummies.
