Thanksgiving Breakfast Fun
A couple Thanksgivings ago, I introduced you to the Pancake Turkey. This year, I’d like you to meet Pancake Turkey II, a variation on the concept of pancake turkeys. I’ll also introduce you to a special, new Thanksgiving friend… the Fruit Turkey. If that’s not enough… new for Thanksgiving 2014, I will show you the rare and exotic Muffins Turkey.
This (above) is the first pancake turkey I ever made. For this gobbler, you need a pancake mix (or homemade pancake batter), a banana, candy corn, a chocolate chip or a raisin and a maraschino cherry or a small dollop of red jam. You can get complete instructions right here.
This is my latest attempt at the craft of pancake turkeys. This one has a little more dimension. To make this guy, you need pancakes, a banana, raisins, sliced almonds and a cashew.
Making the body is just a matter of making one normal pancake and one that’s vaguely phallic. Slice the banana and you’re ready to go.
Now, this handsome follow is a rare, endangered fruit turkey. He’s endangered because I’m seriously about to eat him. Fortunately, you can help repopulate the fruit turkey population with a pear, an apple, an orange, 2 mini-chocolate chips, a raisin and a cashew.
What should I name my fruit turkey? Your comments are welcome below.
Here’s a pair of exotic Muffin Turkeys. You can make these with any muffins. You’ll need some grapes, candy corn (wedged into the grape) and some red and green apple slices. A toothpick is used to attach the grape head to the muffin body. I made eyes with icing and chocolate sprinkles. You could also just dab on some chocolate sauce or peanut butter. The muffins I used for these turkeys were Apple Bran Muffins.
That concludes today’s lesson in the art of breakfast turkeys. All that’s left to say is “Happy Thanksgiving!” I hope it’s your best one ever!
