How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 400°F.
Mix cream cheese, cheddar and dry seasonings until blended; spoon into pepper halves.
Cut hot dogs crosswise in half, then cut each half into 4 lengthwise strips. Place over stuffed peppers.
Unroll crescent dough onto lightly floured cutting board; press into 12x8-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations and seams together to seal. Cut crosswise into 16 (1/2-inch-wide) strips.
Wrap 1 dough strip around each stuffed pepper half. Place, filled sides up, on parchment-covered baking sheet.
Whisk egg and water until blended; brush onto dough. Gently press 2 olive slices into dough on each stuffed pepper for the mummy's eyes.
Bake 15 min. or until golden brown.
