Mummy Wraps

1 (11oz) can Pillsbury Breadsticks
10-12 Hot Dogs

  1. Preheat oven to 375*

  2. Open can of breadstick dough, and cut each of 12 breadsticks into 4 pieces (once lengthwise, then once in half) creating 48 strips of dough.

  3. Wrap each hotdog like a mummy leaving one space open for the eyes/mouth.

  4. Bake at 375* for 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

  5. When slightly cooled, decorate with ketchup and mustard for eyes and mouths. Easiest to put some ketchup/mustard in a small baggie and cut a tiny hole.

I found this recipe in the Pillsbury cookbooks you find at the checkout at the grocery store. It's got some great ideas in there. We like to call them "Jonah Doggies" like Jonah from the Veggie Tales movie, because he had that turban on his head. Consider it a Christian label for this fun food!
