“From Pillsbury Halloween 2005, these look really cute in the picture. I'm guessing that my grandkids will love them!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (11 ounce) can Pillsbury refrigerated breadsticks (12 breadsticks)
  • 12 large hot dogs
  • cooking spray
  • mustard or ketchup, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 375°F
  2. Unroll dough; separate at perforations into 12 breadsticks.
  3. With knife or kitchen scissors, cut each breadstick lengthwise and crosswise into 4 pieces, making a total of 48 pieces of dough.
  4. Wrap 4 pieces of dough around each hot dog to resemble "bandages," stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog.
  5. About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate “bandages” so hot dog shows through for face.
  6. Place wrapped hot dogs on ungreased large cookie sheet; spray dough lightly with cooking spray.
  7. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and hot dogs are hot.
  8. With mustard, draw features on “face.".
  9. Makes: 12 sandwiches.
  10. Kitchen Tips:.
  11. Just for fun, to create Hot Dog Mummies on Sticks, push a flat wooden stick with rounded ends into the end of each hot dog before wrapping it in the dough.
