Big Bird & Snuffleupagus Breakfast


My youngest toddler is a big fan of Sesame Street so we decided to make this fun Big Bird & Snuffleupagus Breakfast one morning a couple of weeks ago.  My boys really loved this and it's pretty easy to make!

Big Bird & Snuffleupagus Breakfast

2 Eggs
Pancake Mix
1 Large & 1 Mini Marshmallow
2 Regular and 2 Mini Chocolate Chips
2 Dark Grapes
1 Strawberry

Start out by mixing up the pancake mix according to directions.  Make a large round pancake on medium heat so it's a little darker.  Cut around one side to make the trunk using kitchen scissors.  Cut out a piece of the scraps to make the mouth and eye lids. Cut a large marshmallow in half to the eyes. You could also spray on whipped cream.  Place 2 chocolate chips on the eyes for the pupils.  Place the cut out eye lids on the top.  Cut sliced a dark grape for eye lashes.  Cut a slice from a strawberry and put that on top of the mouth pancake cut out.

For Big Bird  you want to scramble up 2 to 3 eggs.  We also saved just a little of the beaten egg to make the beak in the pan.  Place the eggs on the plate in the shape of Big Bird. Slip a slice of strawberry for the mouth under the beak.  We cut a mini marshmallow in half for the eyes and used mini chocolate chips for the pupils. We cut a piece of our dark grape for the eye lids. 

This is such a fun breakfast to make with the kids one morning and they will have lots of fun helping make it!
