The food. It’s hands down the best part of Thanksgiving. I’m thankful I have family members who wish to host the feast, freeing me up to dish up a creative turkey day breakfast for my boys. Here’s how I do it:
Turkey Cinnamon roll s
- 1 can cinnamon rolls with icing (5 rolls)
- several strips fully cooked bacon/turkey bacon (haha)
- candy corn and candied eyes
- scrambled eggs-to serve as a side
Simply follow the directions on the cinnamon roll package. When adding icing, place a candy corn beak and candied eyes. Place fully cooked bacon between ceases of the roll (you may need to use a knife to create a slit to stick the bacon in). Serve with a side of scrambled eggs and…..that. is. it. Here’s a video tutorial from Delish.com on how to make them.
Bonus Turkey Treats
If you’re attending a Thanksgiving gathering with several youngsters, a kid friendly dessert is an excellent dish to add to the menu. Serving up a kid minded sweet will keep the little ones entertained for a few minutes longer so the adults can enjoy the pie and wine.
Turkey Pudding Cups
- chocolate pudding cups
- feathers in various colors
- candied eyes
- orange felt
- red glittery felt
Turn the pudding cups upside down. Use hot glue to attach three feathers to one side of the cup (the back). On the front side hot glue candied eyes and a small orange felt triangle for the beak. Use red glittery felt to cut a wattle (that’s the red skin that hangs from a turkey’s neck. I Googled it) and glue next to the beak. Use orange felt to cut feet and glue to underside of pudding up. Kiddos will gobble this treat up.
Rice Cereal Turkeys
- rice cereal bars (cut into large rectangles)
- miniature peanut butter cups
- red, orange and yellow Starbursts
- mini chocolate chips
- snowflake cookie cutter
- yellow frosting
Start by softening the Starbursts in the microwave and then flatten with your fingertips. Use one corner of the snowflake cookie cutter to create the feather shape. Use a small dab of frosting to attach the leaves and the peanut butter cups to the crispy bar. Attach the mini chocolate chip eyes with a bit of frosting. Pipe on yellow frosting for the legs and feet as well as the beak. Use a tiny bit of squished red Starburst for the turkey’s wattle. The idea for this treat was found here.
