Hey, y'all, this here is Petronella Nightshade, what am called Punkin, doin another Easy-Bake Coven. Folks is allus worried about safety on Halloween, and one notion of safety I have seen is that before you take your young one trick or treatin, you ought to have a nice dinner beforehand so's they shan't fill up on Halloween candy. This here recipe is called Hot Dog Mummies, and is fairly easy to do. Our Mad Doctor likes sausages better'n hot dogs, so I reckon this could be done with sausages too if you pre-cook them a bit.

What's In It:
1 can of refrigerated breadsticks (like Pillsbury brand, or some such)
1 dozen hot dogs (or sausages and so forth--precook your sausages a bit)
Cooking spray
Mustard and ketchup

What You Got To Do:
Heat up your oven to 375 degrees. Bust open that tube thing that the breadsticks come in and separate all the
breadsticks, hen with a knife or a kitchen scissors, cut each breadstick in half and then cut the pieces into two strips. This here will be your wrappin for the mummies. Each breadstick ought to make 4 pieces, with a total of 48 pieces all round.

Wrap 4 pieces round each hot dog so it looks like bandages, and stretch them a little bit so it covers them good. About half an inch from one end on each hot dog, separate the "bandages" so the hot dog meat shows through to make a face on. Place your wrapped-up mummy-dogs on an ungreased large cookie sheet, then spray them lightly with the cookin spray.

Bake these for 13 to 17 minutes until the dough is light golden brown and the hot dogs are heated up. With your mustard and ketchup, draw some eyes on the "face" of each mummy-dog.

And that's it. I hope you have a happy Halloween and do not fill up on too much candy or nothin, and wish many blessings on you yours for the season. See you tomorrow for more of The MonsterGrrls' 31 Days Of Halloween, and y'all start gettin ready cause it shan't be long now.
