Mummy Dogs

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Typical recipes for these fun mummy dogs usually use refrigerator biscuits which are typically loaded with calories and additives. By making your own rolls to wrap around the hot dogs, you save a great deal of calories and end up with a far healthier meal item. You may even go so far as to use organic hot dogs, or a hot dog with no added preservatives for an extra health boost.

Prep Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 32 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/8 tsp active, dry yeast (1/2 package)
  • 1 large egg
  • 8, 97% fat-free all beef franks
  • 1 Tbsp prepared mustard

Preparation:

1. Place the milk, butter, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan, and heat over medium heat until the butter is melted.

2. Place 1 cup of flour and the yeast in a large bowl, and add the milk mixture. Stir until combined, and then add the egg. Beat on high for 2 minutes, then add the remaining 1 cup of flour. Mix until the dough forms a ball, then turn our the dough onto a flat, floured surface. Knead for about 8 minutes, or until the dough is smooth and elastic.

3. Place the dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, cover with a clean towel, and allow to raise for one hour or until doubled in size. Punch the dough down, and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

5. Turn the dough out onto a flat, floured surface and roll into a large square. Cut the square into 8 strips.

6. Wrap each frank in one strip of dough, beginning at the top of the frank (leave a small gap in the wrapping for the mummy's "face") and wrapping the dough downward enclosing the frank. Place the wrapped frank on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

7. Bake the franks for 12 minutes, or until the dough just starts to become golden.

8. Place the mummy dogs on a wire cooling rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Then, squirt two small dollops of mustard on the unwrapped portion of the frank to resemble eyes. Serve immediately.
