Mummy Dogs

by Holly

My kids like to make "mummy dogs". I cut a slit in the hot dog large enough to stuff with cheese, then wrap either canned breadsticks or croissants around it, leaving a little bit of one end of the hot dog exposed. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes (or the time stated on the can of dough), then use ketchup to put 2 eyes on the exposed end of the hot dog. Easy enough for even my 2 year old to help!

Snail Bread

Using bread dough or pretzel dough, tear off small balls of dough. Roll dough into a long rope and slowly roll up to resemble a snail's shell. Leave the end of your rope for a tail at the end. Press an extra piece of dough for the head. Let rise for another 20 minutes and bake until golden brown.
