Crescent mummy dogs

I wanted to give a bit of a personal touch to the original recipe for crescent roll hot dog mummies by sprinkling a few sesame seeds and some chili pepper flakes before baking the dogs in the oven. I also added cheese to my crescent mummy dogs before and after baking, because this family is absolutely crazy in love with cheese!!

You can add any ingredient you like to your mummy dogs recipe (like a layer of bacon) or you can just make these Halloween mummy dogs as simple as possible! This recipe is awesome like that! And if you use small hot dogs, your Halloween hot dog mummies could easily pass as a great snack idea for kids any time of the year!
