Can you believe that Thanksgiving time is here?  Our turkey has been bought and plans are being made for a yummy Thanksgiving dinner but I couldn’t let the holiday pass without sharing a fun Thanksgiving breakfast.  Turkey Pancakes are a fun and creative way to get kids to eat their fruit!  You can make them for your kids or let them get creative in how they want to do the feathers.  Have fun playing with your food!

Ingredients needed for Turkey Pancakes:

  • Your favorite pancake batter
  • Bacon or Sausage for the legs
  • Assorted fruit of your choice
  • Wooden Skewersor longer toothpicks
  • Chocolate chips for their eyes

Step 1: Mix up your favorite pancake batter and make it just a bit runnier than you might normally make it.  Pour one large circle onto a warm griddle and use a spoon to make the shape of the turkey neck and head.  Cook until just browned.

Step 2: Add fruit to the skewers in any combination that you want.  We used pineapple, mandarin oranges, strawberries, and green and red grapes.

Step 3: Cut a small piece of orange for the beak and a small piece of strawberry for the wattle.

Step 4: Cook bacon until not quite crispy and then cut into strips.  If it is too crispy it will be hard to cut it the way you want it.  Have you ever tried cutting crispy bacon?  Yeah, it shoots all over the house. 😉

Step 5: Assemble your turkeys.  They are pretty self-explanatory.   Once they are together, add two chocolate chips for the eyes and the bacon strips for the legs.
