Pigs in a Blanket Mummies

Halloween offers an opportunity to take a traditional dish and create something unexpected. Karen Hartzell, owner of In the Kitchen With KP, takes pigs in a blanket to a whole new level by turning this supper standard into spooky mummies. They're so easy to create, you and your kids can cook them up together.

Supplies

Choose a bandage wrap material: One 8-ounce can of refrigerated seamless sheet dough or one can of refrigerated butter-flavored biscuits -- Hartzell's favorite. "My family prefers the taste, and I like the way they bake around the hot dogs," she says. You'll also need several slices of American cheese, quartered, and 10 large hot dog wieners. Have cooking spray on hand, and don't forget the mustard and ketchup.

Start Your Prep

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, prepare the dough. If using sheet dough, unroll dough and cut into four rectangles. Cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 pieces, making a total of 40 pieces of dough. If using biscuits, flatten each biscuit on a cookie sheet and use a pizza cutter to slice them into very thin strips.

Get Cheesy

Get Cheesy

Cut cheese slices into quarters. As an alternative, Hartzell prefers block cheese. Slice down the corner (not the flat sides) of the block, lengthwise, to make triangle-shaped strips.

Wrap It Up

Wrap It Up

Place a quarter slice of cheese under each hot dog prior to wrapping. Wrap each dog-cheese combo with four pieces of dough to look like "bandages," stretching dough slightly to completely cover the hot dog. At about half an inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dog shows through for a "face."

Bake Up Some Fun

Bake Up Some Fun

Place wrapped hot dogs (cheese side down) on ungreased large cookie sheet and spray dough lightly with cooking spray. Place in oven and bake for 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot.

Put On a Face

Put On a Face

After letting the wrapped hot dogs cool for a couple of minutes, add eyes by placing two small dots of mustard on hot dog "faces." Serve up the mummies with mustard and ketchup for dipping.
