Mummy Dogs

I've been seeing photos of "Mummy Dogs" all over the place lately - Pinterest, FB, instagram, etc.

I thought it would be a fun thing to try to make for Alena - Keto/MAD style of course. The "normal" recipe involves wrapping crescent roll dough around a hot dog (mummy style) and then baking the entire thing.

Obviously I couldn't use crescent roll dough for Alena - WAYYYYY too many carbs in that! So I thought I'd try to make them with her standard almond cracker dough (Recipe can be found here, at the Charlie Foundation website)

I made the cracker dough and then cut it, with a pizza cutter, into strips. I wrapped these around the hot dog to make it look like a mummy. This was pretty hard because the dough kept breaking. Eventually I just stuck the dough on and used a wooden skewer to separate the "strips". Then I stuck these puppies into the preheated toaster oven at 325 for about 17 minutes - until the cracker dough started to turn a nice golden brown. I put mustard on for the eyes and served them with a side of Walden Farms ketchup. She also had some nuts, cauliflower, olives, and Parmesan cheese, to round out the meal.

Alena (and her brother, Aidan) were pretty excited about these! So much fun!
