Mummy Dogs with Dipping Sauce

Serves: Makes 4 Mummy Dogs

Ingredients

  • 1 (11 oz) can refrigerated bread stick dough
  • 8 Dietz & Watson Deli Beef Franks or Gourmet Lite Franks (4 for bodies, 4 for limbs)
  • 8 whole cloves
  • ketchup
  • toothpicks

How To Make

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Prepare the limbs: Cut 4 of the hot dogs into thirds. Take the 4 center pieces of hot dogs and cut in half length wise these will become the legs. The two ends from each hot dog will become the arms.
  3. Attach the limbs: Attach two of the cut hot dog end pieces to a full hot dog “the body” with toothpicks to make the arms. Leave enough of the tooth pick sticking out of the arm so it can be removed after cooking. Attach two of the leg pieces with toothpicks again leave enough of the toothpick sticking out of the legs so they can be removed after cooking.
  4. Separate the bread stick dough into the strips and wrap each dog, leaving an open area for a face.
  5. Insert two whole cloves for eyes. Cut a little slit for a mouth, which will gape open a bit during cooking.
  6. Place Mummy Dogs on greased baking sheet and bake around 15 minutes, until golden brown.
  7. Remove Mummy Dogs from the oven.
  8. Remove toothpicks from the Mummy Dogs.
