Crescent Mummy Dogs

I’ve been blogging now for a little over 1 year… CRAZY how fast time flies when you’re trying to create meaningful content week after week.

In celebration of my blog’s first birthday I went back and looked through some of my first posts and it was incredible to see just how far I’ve come in 1 short year. I believe my photography has improved, my content has gotten much more valuable and I’ve stopped blogging for myself and have been focusing on blogging  for my readers. My goal with Live Lean Eat Green is to share some parts of my personal life but mostly to inform and educate everyone on healthy eating and fitness by providing quick tips, nutrition facts, easy recipes…etc.

I know I say it all the time but I’d love to hear what you’d like to see more of on Live Lean Eat Green! I started creating my November content calendar this past week and here’s some posts to look forward to:

  • Everything You Need To Know About Kombucha
  • DIY Ginger Tea
  • How To Set Holiday Health Goals
  • Full Body Arm & Ab Workout
  • My Favorite Protein Bars

While I’m VERY excited to bring you all new content I’m also going to be taking new pictures and re-sharing some of my old posts that probably only my family read back in the day haha!

Since Halloween is essentially THIS weekend I thought it was perfect timing to share my Crescent Mummy Dogs again! See the original post here LOL!

These Crescent Mummy Dogs may not be the healthiest things in the world but in my opinion are far better than candy! If you’re looking for super healthy Halloween snacks I did a post on that last week.

BUT sometimes you have to live a little and what’s better than a good old fashioned hot dog wrapped in fluffy golden crescent dough…NOTHING!

Before we get to the recipe I guess I should probably touch on what I’m doing for Halloween really quickly.

The answer is… NOTHING!

Yep, I’m just not a fan of dressing up in slutty costumes, spending 5 times the normal price on drinks out at the bars/ clubs or anything anymore. You all can creep my personal Facebook for those costumes if you can find me haha!

This year Bryce and I decided we wanted to get away from all the Halloween craziness and go up to Julian which is a small mountain town about 1-2 hours outside of San Diego for a day of hiking, brewery hopping and relaxing. Muchhhhh more my style these days!

BUT if you’re going to any parties I promise people will love these Crescent Mummy Dogs as a festive appetizer or be like me and make them just because and enjoy!

Crescent Mummy Dogs Ingredients & Directions:

By request I’m going to start showing the exact ingredients I use in my recipes. You can always swap out for different brands but below is what I used for my Crescent Mummy Dogs. I’m sure there are healthier crescent dough brand and hot dog brands but hey I wanted to make life easy and was at Target!

So here’s how to make them!

1. Preheat your oven to 375

2. Cut your hot dogs in half. The ends of each hot dog will become the Mummy’s little head…it will make sense in a second I promise! Set aside.

3. Unroll your crescent dough onto a cutting board or other flat surface then using a sharp knife or even better a pizza cutter slice the dough into thin strips about 1/4 inch wide. Honestly, don’t worry if your strips aren’t perfect…they’re suppose to resemble tattered mummy bandages!

4. Using 1-2 strips of dough wrap each hot dog to resemble bandages making sure to leave a little extra space near the “head” for the “eyes”. Place onto a pizza stone or parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Mine got REALLY golden because I thought I could take a quick shower while they cooked…oops!

5. Remove your mummy dogs from the oven and let them comply cool while smelling their delicious-ness!

6. Using a toothpick or anything pointed dot 2 drops of yellow mustard to create the eyes in spaces you left on each mummy’s head. 

7. Arrange on a plate with some ketchup or dipping and enjoy!

  3. 1 tsp yellow mustard
  4. optional: ketchup and more mustard for dipping
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375
  2. Cut your hot dogs in half and set aside (the ends of the hot dogs will be the heads of the mummies)
  3. Unroll crescent dough onto a cutting board and using a sharp knife or pizza cutter start cutting thin strips about 1/4 inch thick
  4. Wrap 1-2 strips of dough around each hot dog to resemble "bandages" and be sure to leave an open space at the uncut end of the hot dog for the mummies eyes
  5. Place mummies onto a pizza stone or baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 7-10 minutes
  6. Remove mummies from oven and let them completely cool.

Notes
  1. With an 8 count hot dog pack you will only use 1/2 the crescent dough so if you want to double this recipe simply use an extra pack of hot dogs
