There is a child in every one of us still looking for a brightly lit front porch…Robert Brault
Hello, sweet friends…
It’s time to get your BOO on…
since after all...
us ghouls just want to have fun!
speaking of fun I have 2 easy recipes for you just in time for the weekend!
A few days ago I woke up early (Joe was still sleeping) and decided to make these. The smell of the veggie sausage was so good that it woke Joe up. He came downstairs and said “wow… whatever you are cooking smells so good it could wake up the dead!’” I laughed and told him that was funny because I was making “mummy dogs”
6 Hot dogs (I use veggie sausage)
1 package Crescent Roll Dough
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Open your crescent roll package and unroll the dough. Press on the perforations to seal them together.
Cut the dough into 1/4 inch strips.
Wrap the pieces of dough around each hot dog creating bandages by stretching the dough slightly and letting it overlap and criss-cross. You don’t completely cover the hot dog, leave gaps so it looks like a mummy peeking out from its bandages.
Place each wrapped hot dog on a baking sheet and then bake for 10-12 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and hot dogs are warmed through.
Remove from the oven and place a small dot of ketchup or mustard on the back of your candy eyes and add 2 to each mummy dog.
Tortilla Cheese Jack-o- Lanterns
shredded marble or shredded cheese
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Stack 2 flour tortillas on top of each other. Use a kitchen knife to cut out a pumpkin “stem” from them.
Set one of the flour tortillas aside. Cut a face out from the middle of one of the tortillas.
You can plan your face by scratching out the shapes with a toothpick before you cut, if you like.
Set the tortilla without a face on a baking sheet. Cover it with cheese.
Add the other flour tortilla on top of the cheese, making sure the stems line up.
Bake in the oven at 400F for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the edges start to turn golden.
Serve with sour cream and salsa.
